Born in Ohio to Latvian-Jewish parents, Pedon relocated first to San Francisco and then to Venice, California to start a modeling career. Bob Ellison and John Kirk, both well-known glamour photographers in Los Angeles have been credited with discovering her. She was known by many pseudonyms (Roberta Pedon, Melody O’Hare, Roberta Baird and Roberta Weaver). “Roberta Pedon” was the name she had fully adopted by 1973. The “Melody O’Hare” moniker supposedly came from the name of one of her best friends in junior high. Pedon’s nickname was “Mooschi”.
Because of her large breasts, Pedon’s photographs frequently appeared in men’s magazines catering to breast fetishists. The earliest verifiable publication of her photos was in the February 1974 edition of “The Swinger”, a men’s magazine. The issue would have gone to press the prior November. In Nymphet, February 1975, she appeared under her actual name with text referring to her Jewish background. Pedon dressed (and then undressed) as a hippie in most of her photo shoots.
Pedon appeared in the sexploitation film Carnal Madness aka Delinquent Schoolgirls. Her casting was the result of her contacts at American Art Enterprises (AAE), a Los Angeles company that specialized in pornographic shoots and loops. AAE’s modeling roster provided the producer of Delinquent Schoolgirls with busty female talent like Pedon and Nika Movenka for the film. After appearing in Delinquent Schoolgirls, Pedon auditioned for the lead female role in the Jan-Michael Vincent film Buster and Billie.
