Marion Ryan (4 February 1931 - 15 January 1999) was a popular British singer in the 1950s. Born Marian Ryan in Middlesbrough, England, and once called "the Marilyn Monroe of popular song," Marion Ryan was a pop singer of the 1950s in the early years of British Independent Television. She was the regular singer in the popular musical quiz "Spot the Tune," on Granada Television for seven years from 1956, with a total of 209 half-hour programmes, that featured several star hosts including disc-jockey Pete Murray, the Canadian pop singer Jackie Rae, and the comedians Ken Platt and Ted Ray, and also Peter Knight and his Orchestra. She made one brief appearance as herself in a film with singer Tommy Steele. The show re-emerged in the 1970s as "Name That Tune."
