100 years ago today the first "Miss America" was named in New York City. The Miss America Pageant would have its origins the following year in Atlantic City. That's our excuse to play songs populated by other Misses. How many can we name? You'll hear the finalists after 9am.

Here's what we played:

k.d. lang "Miss Chatelaine"

Elliott Smith "Miss Misery"

Edie Brickell & New Bohemians "Little Miss S"

The Jimi Hendrix Experience "Little Miss Strange"

The Beatles "Dizzy Miss Lizzy"

Little Richard "Good Golly Miss Molly"
