"He no sooner gets alone with a sweater girl than he's trying to pull the wool over her eyes." That's a really old joke that only old guys remember. 'Sweater girl' was a term used to describe... how do I properly put it?... Dolly Parton types (you know, having a good singing voice Winking Smiley - RF Cafe). Anyway, I thought you might need to be apprised of the origin of the term to appreciate the title of this article from a 1944 edition of Radio-Craft. You're welcome.
