Yes Annette Was "Dot Dare"

by Mark Gabrish Conlan

Yes, the mysterious "Dot Dare" was a pseudonym for Annette Hanshaw. The story I've heard is that someone at Helen Kane's label, Victor, thought "Dot Dare" was Kane herself, breaking her Victor contract by recording for another label. Reportedly Victor threatened to sue Helen Kane over the "Dot Dare" recordings, and Kane and Hanshaw, who were good friends, had a lunch date during which they laughed about the lawsuit threat.
