Pamela joined Flo Ziegfeld's "Broadway Follies" after her return to America and was voted Miss St. Louis in 1926. She was also awarded a Medal of Honor from Congress due to her wartime efforts in the USO and featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not for memorizing a record 10,000 songs. She led the all-girl orchestra and Odeon Theatre house band the Musical Pirates and hosted radio programs including The Encouragement Hour, Kansas City, and Gal About Town, Fresno. She is quoted as saying, "Radio is great for people who don't have a television."
She only produced one album, Into Outer Space With Lucia Pamela (aproximately 1969, Gulfstream and later on L'Peg), whose songs are mostly about an imaginary trip to the moon. The song "Flip Flop Fly" was featured on the radio by Bob and Ray in 1973, but the album was all but forgotten before being reissued in 1992 to greater acclaim. She also produced a cartoon coloring book, Into Outer Space with Lucia Pamela in the Year 2000.
