Regarding the fan calls - Maybe it was just too much last year? I could imagine that their whole phone system must have almost broken down last year with all the calls...

The first call was pretty good...she talked for a long time. She seemed to enjoy it, I thought. Ed did get her confused talking about Gordon McRae being on her show...he was talking radio and she was talking TV...but, just to hear her is enough for me! Even if she was confused!!

A friend of mine listened to the live stream most of the day today. He did not really discover Doris until this year, after I sent him a 3-cd set of her music and after he watched 5 of her movies. After the show was over, he sent me a brief email, but it was worded perfectly. This is what he had to say:

Doris Day paints in colors today’s folks have never had eyes to see.

Love, Rob

I've just finished listening to all the great clips from the program that Marion sent me - thanks so much for doing that Marion and for taking care of the whole thing - great job! I've uploaded the files you sent me and they can be downloaded from the links below.

Doris sounded wonderful, didn't she? It's so good to know she is well and - apart from all the building work that has been going on! - happy. It's very reassuring, isn't it? She almost burst into song a few times.

Hey, the cheek of that woman to tell her off in a nasty letter because she didn't get a reply! If you give someone a gift it should be unconditional with no strings attached and not because you expect something in return.

I'm still taking it all in but I'm left with a nice warm glow after listening to our favourite gal. She sounds so young and on the ball - she'll outlive all of us!

Yes, she did - However she was kind of "driven away" from the phone by the moderator and it lasted not even 4 minutes.

Bryan, are you going to put that up, too?

Thanks! :oops:

I just noticed however that I screwed up at the end of 5 of the 6 parts - Don't ask me what happened there that the slide show is longer then the talking? In my programme it was matched up - The converting must have done something to it... :?:

What a wonderful Day! Doris was in top form and sounded great!!!! The people at the Cypress semed like they were having a ball!!! And I was worried! No need with the Love all around with Doris! I wish Betsy had told Doris that the man from her hour special was John Denver! Doris remembered the song they did on her Doris Day Today show.All that good living has paid off, Doris is ageless and better than ever! God Bless her and he did!!!! :D

A big thank you to you Bryan and Marion,
Hearing Doris talk feels so familiar.I stayed up as long as I could and heard the first call.
I could picture "the scene" about the address being lost as Doris has had problems with the roof.She really is something else!!!going through rebuilding a roof and stuff and still apologizing to that "lady" for not having written back!!
Anyway,it is amazing how crisp Doris' voice sounds,the tears and laughter mixed in a happy moment,her genuine down-to-earth way of talking.
I feel sorry I have not heard the message Samantha send in by e-mail.That must have been overwhelming.What a special thought.
I feel so happy having heard her and being able to listen again as I want to.

It was a great DoDo-day indeed.

My mum and i couldn't believe - i'm so happy i really am. :D
here is what they read out - it wasn't much but i got my feelings and point across. :)

" My name is Samantha and i really want to wish Doris a Happy Birthday from Glasgow, Scotland.
I am nearly 18 years old and i have loved doris all my life since i was at least 5 years old.
Doris is the best singer in the world and i love her, music and films - just everything about her.
I sent a scrapbook to miss Day.
Doris means so much to me, i live for doris, she is my life, my world.
Love Doris more than i can say, always in my heart and i will love doris forever. "

i would have wrote it much better but i really didn't think it would have got read out - it really made my day, not just my day but it's something i will remember all of my life. :D
i'm really happy.

Doris sounded Wonderful - She will always be Young at heart. :D
Doris certainly loves to talk, a bit like myself.
That woman who sent her an unkind letter that's terrible but doris still put the photo frame up - that's doris for you so forgiving and sweet. Doris really got upset about the letters that people sent and got wet.
Doris really cares and loves her fans and her fans really love her.
She is just the best woman on earth and i love her, i really do - she's a part of my family
I really enjoyed the day well it was night for me.
when they read my message out it was 1.25am - uk time but i would stay up all night for doris.
Doris is unique ! :D
I am happy to see what you wrote Samantha,it must have been (still is!!) a thrill to hear that.And yes, Doris will always be young at heart,it's incredible how unchanged her laughter and voice is.you can recognize her talking anywhere.
Good for you Samantha,see,never say never !!!!

Hey everyone!
Carmel was great, and I'll tell you about it when I'm more rested from my trip.
But, I wanted to tell you about how I listened to the broadcast.
Near the bar at Terry's Lounge, there were some radios on some of the tables.
It was so much fun meeting fans, and listening to the broadcast together, live when it was happening!
We all at the Cypress had a blast!
When being in the Cypress, I felt Doris' warmth.
More later...
LPT
