Thanks Peter for sharing your discovery of this great site. It contains a wealth of programs featuring numerous bands and singers. Also on this site are two Les Brown/Doris Day segments. The first is 0643 Spotlight Band where Doris sings "My Dreams...Time" and "Sentimental Journey" and the other is 0785 One Night Stand where Doris sings "The More I See You" and " 'Tain't Me." All the songs appear to be new 'live" versions. Thanks again Peter. Happy Days,
Texas Gonzalo

Great work, Peter! Re: the entry of April 4, 1952 showing Jack Smith as a radio guest . . . did you know that he (instead of Doris) sang "It's a Great Feeling" at the Academy Award ceremonies in 1950?

Peter, thanks to your work, The DDDDiscography is more complete. I've included the "missing" Hit Parade shows, and other material for the Bob Hope shows. I wish we had more data on the elusive Doris Day Radio Show. But we can hope same will surface. Thanks again, and Happy Days, Texas Gonzalo.

Hello Musiclover & Texas,

Thanks both for your reply's. Didn't know that Jack Smith sang "It's A Great Feeling" on the Academy Award Show, but read that his fans weren't happy with his "not so sympathetic" role in On Moonlight Bay. That's why he didn't returned to By The Light Of The Silvery Moon.

In january I found a great website with a lot of old radio shows on it. With also the 22nd Academy Award show.

http://www.dumb.com/oldtimeradio/allshows.html

Did you listen to The Your Hit Parade shows already? Love Frank Sinatra, but loved to hear more Doris on them. Only the first show has Doris speaking, I think most shows are pre-recorded without audiences.

Enjoy your Sunday,

Peter I thought that Doris referred in her book to the hit parade [and other shows, e.g. Sweeny and Marsh] - to be live and talked about her [by then] increasing stage fright before a show.

Hi Jas,

Your absolutly rigth about that, but if you listen to these kind of shows it doesn't sound that way. Doris is witty, sharp and in fine voice. There are a lot of live shows out on the internet, The Your Hit Parade Shows weren't live on air I think. There's only the first one where Doris talks a little, the other has Doris only singing and Frank and Del Sharbutt do the talking. So I think the songs were pre recorded. I'm still looking for other Your Hit Parade Shows but... these few came after years and years... so I expect that will be the case with the other shows. I also found out that Frank Sinatra was ill one time and replaced by Vic Damone. Love to hear that episode too.

I think that Doris first comedy routine on air must be on one of the Jack Kirkwood Shows. Not the first one, but I have to dig in it to find out. Of course on most Bob Hope Shows everything is live. I don't know exactly how many shows I've heard over the years. But only in one Christmas episode 1949-20-12 on the Bob Hope Show Doris makes a little mistake at the end of the song: "Here Comes Santa Claus." And sometimes she has to reread her lines through a remark from Bob/Jack/Hy.

Hope to find more Doris on radio soon, but if your the one that beats me. Please share the information.

Enjoy,

P

Hi there,

Image
Does anyone have more information about this show or an mp3 file? The show is listed/posted on a few audio sites as being the Guest Star 44 show. So I'd love to hear this 1951 show. Paul Weston and Doris Day are a great combination, Dell Sharbutt is the same announcer as the one on the Your Hit Parade shows.

Love to hear from you,

Nice find, Peter. Doris was the guest on several of these recordings. Rather than actual shows, they were designed by the U.S. Treasury Department to be played on the radio as fund-raising promotions to encourage the public to buy savings bonds. Recordings, such as the one above, made from the last half of 1950 through the first half of 1953 were meant to sell bonds in support of the war effort in Korea.

Hi all,

Anyone a clue where to find information on The Bob Hope Shows with these Doris Day songs:

* Love Somebody - Doris Day & Bob Hope
* Confess - Doris Day & Bob Hope
* I Said My Pyjama's - Doris Day & Bob Hope
* Let's Take An Old Fashioned Walk - Doris Day & Bob Hope

Peter, if you haven't done so already and have the time, you can listen to most (but not all) of Doris's appearances on Bob Hope's radio show by searching "oldtimeradio downloads bob hope show." It has at least one of her appearances as a guest vocalist on that program, and then her appearances as a regular cast member starting on Oct. 19, 1948 and ending June 13, 1950. Maybe this will help you find part of what you're looking for.

Hi Musiclover,

Thank you for your reply and help. I've listened to a lot of The Bob Hope Shows through the years. A few are mislabelled but there are some around. Doris appeared around 70 times on The Bob Hope Show, about 25 show are available online. On most of the shows she sang and did a comedy routine with Bob, Hy and Irene. Bob mostly did a routine with the guest of the day: Bing Crosby, Arthur Godfrey, Lucille Ball, Dean Martin & Jerry Lewis, Jane Russel, Rhonda Flemming, Jimmy Durante and others.

I collected them on Box.com

https://app.box.com/s/5v3d53hjpy8xlr9k2t3s

I hope the link works, love to hear some more with Lucille Ball and the Martin & Lewis appeareances on The Bob Hope Show.

Will keep searching...

Peter, thanks for the links above. Fun to listen to the Nov. 9, 1948 comedy skit with Doris and Bob. One can hear a very good pre-Calamity Jane accent in her character here.
