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.

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.)
