Re: I Didn't Know About You - Les Brown & Doris Day

Hi Musiclover, thanks for your information. The song "I Didn't Know About You" is now part of the discography. Also thank you for your comment about the discography.

Re: I Didn't Know About You - Les Brown & Doris Day

Hi Musiclover, on a recent post you stated that Doris Day sang "I Didn't Know About You" on a AFRS program from Bowman Field, Kentucky in October 1944. Before I make a correction to The Doris Day Definitive Discography, I want to verify your information. The only song I had noted during the 7 Octobe...

Re: 1944 WLW audition song

Hi jmichael, You are correct in the chronology starting in 1939 when Doris Day auditioned for Barney Rapp. Look in Chapter III of The Definitive Doris Day Discography where you will note the beginning of Miss Day's singing years. The "poster" you refer to sounds like an ad for Joyce LP 1058 which co...
