Cogan's first release was "To Be Worthy of You", "Would You", recorded on her 20th birthday. This led to her appearing regularly on the BBC's radio show Gently Bentley, and then becoming the vocalist for Take It From Here, a British radio comedy programme broadcast by the BBC between 1948 and 1960. In 1953, while recording "If I Had a Golden Umbrella", she broke into a giggle; she then played up the effect on later recordings . Cogan's first album, I Love to Sing, was released in 1958. Cogan was one of the first UK record artists to appear frequently on television, where her powerful voice could be showcased along with her bubbly personality and dramatic costumes.
