The film involves a trio of young female singers trying to break into show business. Three young women working in an agency named Dixie Foley, Daphne O' Connor and Susan Moore ( Alice Faye, Patsy Kelly, and Frances Langford) have built a singing trio. They want to 'lease' the Dictaphone of their boss, Mr. Huxley (John Dilson) to make a record of their singing, but they are caught and fired. When they are not able to pay their rent any longer, they decide to try their luck on an amateur contest at a radio station, hosted by a Major Bowes-type named Colonel Dave (Walter Catlett). Several talents approach the microphone, including The Radio Rogues, an Italian who sings opera terribly, and an elderly chicken impersonator aptly named Henrietta (Florence Gill).

Due to lack of food, Susan becomes unconscious while singing and the contest is won by a blue-collar big band led by Tops Cardona (George Raft). They become involved with Tops after he is impressed by Susan's singing at a café run by a German named Joe Schmidt (Herman Bing). Tops offers them a job with his band at the radio station. They accept, are christened The Swanee Sisters by Tops to give them a southern flavor, and he buys them matching outfits. Tops and the girls soon become a nationwide hit once they land a sponsor (who happens to be their old boss, Mr. Huxley), but after a while, they grow tired of working constantly and not having any fun, and leave the band indefinitely. Daphne insists they attend a party (in the furs Tops bought for them), leaving Tops to fend for himself.

They accept an invitation to appear at a party held on a yacht by a Mrs. Reginald Herring-Smythe (Claudia Coleman). After meeting several unsavory rich people at the soiree, and feeling a bit sour after mixing with the "creme de la creme", they adjourn to an anteroom with a radio in it. Tops is on the air without them, and he tells everyone listening in that they are absent and how much he misses them, hoping they will to return to him. The girls soon realize they can't go on without him and return to the band.
