Hi all,

A radio station called 920 WON had a Doris Day tribute show. They used a lot of the already available Doris Day radio shows. For those of you who are not familiar with these shows... Give them a listen.

Hi again,

Told you I found the second part of a Doris Day radio show. It's contents are here below. I think it's nice to hear her chat with Van Johnson. They were friends. Although not much of their friendship is know. Van worked with Doris on her radio show and her television show. And the met in Cannes. Van had made a film where he wasn't proud of, the story is in Doris Day's Own Story.

Peter, and others, I thought you might be interested in a website I came across called The Railroad Hour. which has lots of old-time radio shows, including broadcasts with Doris Day.

Sample entry:

"On October 3, 1949, one day short of a year after its first ABC broadcast and one week after its final ABC broadcast, The Railroad Hour debuted on NBC, where it would stay for the next five seasons. Three productions are posted from that season, beginning with No, No, Nanette, from November 21, 1949, co-starring Doris Day. (5) No, No, Nanette, (music by Vincent Youmans, book & lyrics by Frank Mandel, Otto Harbach & Irving Caesar), debuted on Broadway in 1925. It was made into movies in 1930 and 1940 before the Gordon MacRae & Doris Day remake of No, No, Nanette was released by Warner Brothers in 1950 as Tea For Two. Its major songs are I Want To Be Happy and Tea For Two.)......

MP3 Audio Link: http://www.jimramsburg.com/uploads/1/0/ ... -21-49.mp3
You can also download the mp3s

There's more of Doris here: http://www.jimramsburg.com/apps/search? ... ris+day%22
If you search for her put quotation marks around her name "doris day" otherwise you get every page with 'day' in it!

Hi Peter, Thank you for sharing your wonderful finds of the two Doris Day Radio Shows. The audio is great. We had been treated to the Van Johnson song with Doris - "You're Just In Love" in the recent CD of lost radio songs. In any event it is great to hear the entire two radio shows. Thanks to you the contents of the two shows are now part of the Doris Day Definitive Discography. Thanks again, Texas Gonzalo
