I remember as a kid my mom bought this for my grandma... it was Grandma's favorite perfume and what a good memory.
My grandma used Radio Girl Perfume. I think she paid $.25 a bottle for it in the dime store. Smelling it brings memories flooding back of her. I loved her very much.
I am 85 years old and have an empty little bottle of Radio Girl Perfume that was my Grandmother's, It still smells like a new bottle. I smell it every so often, it brings back so many memories.
