Helena introduces herself

Unread post by Helena4110 » 30 Nov 2019, 03:02

Hello everyone!

My name is Helena, I was born in Cornwall but now live in Russia with my Belgian husband. I discovered Doris Day and her superb songs when I still was a child, 30 years ago, as my mother loved to play her music at home when my father was working. I have recently found my mother's pile of old records (which originally were her mother's!) and brought them back home, and now they must be the first Doris Day records to be played on a Soviet made gramophone I found at a flea market!
I have already discovered many songs I did not know on this forum, and I feel like I'm discovering Doris all over again... I hope that this is only the beginning of my "retrospective"!


Have a nice day,

Helena.

Hello Helena,

Welcome to the forum - from Cornwall to Russia is an interesting journey! Which part of Russia do you live in? (I live in London.)
I have recently found my mother's pile of old records (which originally were her mother's!) and brought them back home, and now they must be the first Doris Day records to be played on a Soviet made gramophone I found at a flea market!
It would be interesting to know what they are?

Thanks for introducing yourself and I hope you will enjoy being part of the forum.

Regards

Bryan

Welcome to the forum, Helena. You will encounter DD fans from various parts of the world here, which shows that Doris had (and continues to have) very wide appeal. Her legacy transcends both age and geographic distance.

Welcome aboard, Helena.

Nice to have so many fans from around the world here. I hope the trend continues.

What a great story - the thought of Doris' records playing in Russia is lovely.

Glad to know you, Helena. My dad was born in Russia.
Like Irene Dunne done.
