Peter,

Thank you for this updated and interesting list of songs Doris performed.

Some of the Doris songs that are new to me:

Tree In The Meadow
Went Down To Virginia
Hair of Gold
That Certain Party
Criusin' Down The River
Mad About That Man
(I wonder if Doris ever sang Mad About The Boy)
Sunshine Cake
Happy Times
Blind Date

I know Doris had 29 studio albums and there are dozens of compilation albums. I have never heard of the songs l listed. I am so curious to hear them.

I hope one day every song Doris has sung is discovered and released on a cd.

Peter, thank you so much for your dedication in researching Doris' songs and sharing this information with DD Forum members. Please pass on my genuine thanks to your friends who have helped you. It is important.
Johnny

Hi Peter,

A huge thank you must to your and your friends Marc Friend and Karl Pearson for sharing this February 24-1956 American Heart Foundation radio show featuring Alfred Hitchcock and Doris Day.

It is a treasure.

Listening to Alfred speaking to Doris in his measured manner is a joyous delight. Her warmth and sincerity woven with his dry tone in conversation is exhilarating to hear.

Doris singing seven of her celebrated songs is another pure joy.

Sharing this rare historical jewel from 1956 with everyone on the Doris Day Forum is a great gift for us all.

Thank you again Peter for your perseverance and dedication in finding these Doris Day treasures and generosity in sharing them.

This is another example of the importance of the Doris Day Forum.
Johnny

What a great find, Peter! Thanks for posting it. If I'm not mistaken, this recording of Que Sera, Sera was the last time Doris sang on live radio. (It is also featured on the "Music, Movies & Memories" CD.)

Hi Peter:

Forgive my ignorance - but when you write "rare radio shows back" do you mean you found a document that lists the song order for each appearance OR do you mean you found an actual recording/transcription of each show?

If it's that you found recordings/transcriptions - could you share some tips on where to find these rare items. I've never heard Doris on "Time Waits for No One" and "A Friend of Yours."

Hi docwheels,

So nice to hear from you! They are mp3/wav/flac files from original transcription records. There are websites selling these, on Facebook there are pages with other collectors that sell or share. A few I bought myself and have had them transferred to mp3/wav/flac files in America. The 16 inch transcription records can't be played on Dutch 16 inch record players. I have a few good friends in America who are able to transfer them and clean them. Sometimes the material is in bad shape, but that's not strange looking at the age (sometimes more that 75 years old) of the material. I shared the most of my "Radio" collection here on this site. The links still should work. If you will look through the pages here (Doris Day on Live Radio 40's/50's) you'll find them. The new shows from 08-02-2020 aren't included yet.

Greetings,

Peter

O I forgot to mention, that mostly all versions are "new versions" They were live recorded for the transcription discs. So there is sometimes difference in the time, the arrangment, sometimes there is a vocal group added. That gives a new dimension to the song.

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 the data contained in those transcriptiuons are now posted to the DDD Discography. Thanks again and Happy Days, Texas Gonzalo

Thanks Peter, for this very interesting listing of the UK radio broadcasts!

Previously, I thought the original shows were broadcast in their entirety, but now it's clear that they also included newer recordings, so the UK series was decidedly different from the US series. Fascinating!

Yeah, hopefully some of these shows can be found and become available for those of us interested in them. :D

Thank you Peter for posting this truly comprehensive information on the Doris Day Radio Shows on the BBC.

I wondered if Doris had recorded all these songs; some of the songs I did not recall or recognize. I checked them out on You Tube and found most of them.


Here is a lost of the ones I searched:

Ooh Bang Jiggly Jang - it is a really upbeat fun song that I don't think I have heard before

Domino - a truly beautiful ballad

When I'm Happy - When I viewed this on You Tube it looked like it may have been edited from Pillow Talk- It sounds like a torch song.

I Love The Way You Say Goodnight - Doris sings this song with Gene Nelson in Lullaby of Broadway

You Have My Sympathy - A beautiful tender ballad - Surprised I had not heard this before.

You Can't Lose Me - Doris and Donald O'Connor
- could not find this soñg

Kay Muleta - Doris sounds great singing this really upbeat number - I know recall I have not heard this song before.

I Know A Place - I immediately thought of Petula Clark singing this song in the 1960's + Doris' song is completely different

You're Always Romantic - Doris with Tony Martin - couldn't find this song - Tony has a song called Look Out I'm Romantic

What Did You Put in That Kiss? - terrific upbeat song that I don't recall hearing before.

It is a real pleasure to discover these recordings. Hopefully in time these radio programs will be published recordings.

Peter, my heartfelt appreciation goes to you and your associates The Friends of Magazine by Sue Gokgor , Annie Mann , and Radio Luxembourg
for making this treasured contribution to the Doris Day Forum.

Hi sihmonSELV & Johnny,

It's a pleasure to make these posts and lists. And I love it that you respond to them. Yes Annie did a very good job on this one. And this was before cassetterecorders. So she had to write and listen while the show was on. Two of these shows are found, sound quaility isn't the best. One of the shows has another show leaking through. Probably the tape or whatever they used, is used before...

The songs:
- You Can't Lose Me - Doris Day & Donald O'Connor
Is recorded on: 1952-08-04 by Columbia Records. It's definitly on The Bear Records. If you don't have these, pm me. ([email protected])

* You're Always Romantic - Doris with Tony Martin - couldn't find this song either. Annie Mann was 14 when she made notes, she could be wrong on this one. I've looked for it to and couldn't find it. Not even with other singers. Doris and Tony did sing: If Life Were All Peaches & Cream. But the words: You're Always Romantic, I haven't found in it. So maybe a version we haven't seen before.

- When I'm Happy - Is from a recording session with Van Alexander and his orchestra. These transcription records were especially made for the Doris Day radio show.

Enjoy your Day and stay safe.
