    I wonder if America's Best Music will play her music? They added some of her songs when they moved back in a traditional direction a few years ago. They haven't played her lately.

    I saw no reason to watch movies when I was a teenager but now I wish I had. WRET, the independent station, advertised that they had movies every night and I now realize one of those stars they showed was her. I think I would have liked those movies. Watching movies on individual stations was something I started doing in the mid-90s.

    Doris Day had a great voice. She was also a wonderful actress and an animal rights advocate. RIP, dear Doris.

    A great singer and actress. She also endured serious hardship with grace, and definitely did not get the adulation she often deserved, and that is not too strong a term. She was an ardent animal welfare advocate. Her menagerie came from strays that she picked up along the way wherever she went. She also won appeal after appeal when a shyster lawyer participated in swindling her husband out of her hard earned money which left her destitute when her husband died. The guy spent decades trying to get out of the judgment that he had to pay her - all the way to the United States Supreme Court, where they just refused to hear it in the 80s.
    No irony there.

    The obit mentions her only child was a son Terry Melcher, who died 15 years ago. Terry was a very successful record producer in the 60s, with hits by The Byrds, Paul Revere & The Raiders, and many more. He had a long friendship with the Beach Boys, and a bizarre encounter with Charles Manson.

    Nothing so far on WNAM other than news stories but they ddi mention "Calamity Jane". That is one movie of hers I did see and enjoyed. They showed it to us in the auditorium in junior high school.

    There is an old quote: "I knew Doris Day before she was a virgin!"

    I remember many of her great movies, her terrific voice but perhaps I remember
    her best when she stood by Rock Hudson as he suffered from AIDS. She was
    that kind of person and that kind of lady.

    TCM will probably do a tribute night of her movies.
