Eddie Blaine's Band
Big band fronted by Janice Payne from the "I Loved a No-Good Guy" story of romance comic book Love Diary #15 (April 1951). Leader Eddie is shown leading the band but never playing an instrument.
"Two years ago, I was at the top of the heap. Why shouldn't I be? I was young, ambitious, and I had just landed a job singing with Eddie Blaine's Band! It wasn't a big name band, but it was pretty good, and we all pulled together, always hoping our big break would come someday soon!"
Singer Payne falls for the Tom Mitchell, the "No-Good Guy" of the title. It almost causes her to drop out of the band, but Blaine convinces her to stay for their big break in Chicago. They make good there, and she gets over Mitchell, and Blaine confesses his love for her! They get married.
