Doris Day was one of the biggest stars of the 20th Century. She began her career in the big-band era with Les Brown and His Band of Renown, then went on to become a hugely successful screen star during the 50s and 60s, had her own radio show, and eventually starred in her own television sitcom. John Pizzarelli was one of her biggest fans during most of those years, so when it was announced that Doris passed away last week, on May 13, he and Jessica knew they had to pay tribute to her on this week’s program.Besides the Doris Day records and stories, they also present their usual assortment of deluxe music, this week spotlighting vocal harmony groups, Mother’s Day, Jack Sheldon, and several other topics.
