Chuck’s Classics, featuring Doris Day



Many have tried to get Doris Day to come out of retirement, but no such luck. In 1950 she was on the charts with Bewitched.

  1. Doris Day was one of the singers I’ve always enjoyed listening to and her movies proved her comedic talent even if her personal life wasn’t always happy. It’s probably a typo, the word ‘have’, since Doris Day passed away a few years ago and, no, she didn’t come out of retirement but devoted her time to pets and animal causes. A classy lady!
