It features part of an interview that aired on the Cliff Miller Show on Radio KDES in a segment called “You and Palm Springs” in 1962.

Her posh home in Palm Springs was said to be filled with such peculiar décor as a door knob from the Palace of Versailles and a rug made of monkey pelts. Click here to listen.
