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
