Dinah Shore was an American singer, actress, television personality, and the top-charting female vocalist of the 1940s. She reached the height of her popularity as a recording artist during the Big Band era of the 1940s and 1950s, but achieved even greater success a decade later, in television, mainly as hostess of a series of variety programs for Chevrolet. An album I've had for awhile - bought it back when I first started listening to my favorite local radio station, KAAM, when their catch phrase was "The Music of Your Life". At that time, it was mostly "big bands and great singers", and they still play a lot of that, but they also include more recent songs that fit into that particular format. Anyway, I vaguely remember Dinah Shore's TV program from the 1970s. I don't think I ever watched it, but I remember it was on. Most of all I remember that she was dating Burt Reynolds in the 70s - it was kind of a big deal because he was 20 years younger. And of course, there's the famous Dinah Shore Weekend now - lots of women and lots of golf. Well, these are all familiar songs and Dinah sings them wonderfully. I think I bought this at HPB, and it was pretty scratched up.
