Re: September Song and My #1 Dream

Peter, thanks for posting the details on the 31 July 1946 One Night Stand. I have added that program to the Doris Day Definitive Discography. I do have one question on one of the songs. According to my entries in the DDDD that song was also included as AFRS Magic Carpet #458, August 1946, but the so...

Re: Chatting about Doris...

Tomorrow marks the first day of the Julien's Auctions of "Property From The Estate of DORIS DAY. I received the print catalog and was amazed at the quality of the book, which is about 2 inches thick, and measures 8 3/4" by 11 1/4". The catalog contains 735 pages, and has many Doris Day photos I had ...

Re: Doris Day on Live Radio Shows 40's/50's

Peter, thank you for posting all those great finds of the Les Brown transcriptions. Particularly intriguing is the 11 September 1945 One Night Stand (AFRS) Fill #93 which contains "The Man I Love" and "Dream." Could you share that particular trnascription? Have not heart those songs by Miss Day. All...

Re: Rare Doris Day/Buddy Clark Recordings

Hi Peter, as you you will recall the recording of A Strawberry Moon/That Certain Party is contained in a 78 rpm test pressing. I heard both songs only once before my turntable became inapporable. The first thing I have to do is transfer the songs on tape then on to a CD. When I can accomplish that, ...

Re: Les Brown, Jr. on Doris Day and a new recording!

I do not wish to rain on our parade, but most of the tracks included in this new project were released earlier by Hindsight Records. I hope the tracks described for this CD are different, but I doubt it. Hindsight Records in 1986 released a CD which contains 10 of the tracks now described for the ne...

Re: Doris Day on Live Radio Shows 40's/50's

The air check recording of "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me" is definitely sung by Doris Day. The sound of her voice dates it sometime in 1944-1945. The song is now listed in the Doris Day Definitive Discography. Thank you docwheels for posting your findings, and thank you for your contributions to...
