Super Rare & New Interview with Doris Day

Bobby Rivers  recently alerted his Twitter followers of this radio interview with Doris Day. I also got a notice from a Publicist about it. Doris Day does not give interviews so this is a very rare treat for Doris Day fans. It's over an hour and unlike some radio or podcast interviews that are very structured, this one is very relaxed. Schwartz doesn't have a set of questions to ask and doesn't cut off Doris Day every couple of minutes. He lets her talk and what we get is an hour of Doris Day chatting. It's simply wonderful. It's like you stopped by her house and she sat you down for tea and just talked about her life and career. It feels very personal in a way but removed since it's a radio interview. Take a moment to listen to it. I embedded the audio into this post but you can also go to the website which is listed below. Enjoy!

From the Publicist:
Over the weekend, WNYC aired a special episode of The Jonathan Schwartz Show, featuring a rare interview with DORIS DAY. The Hollywood legend spent some time with Jonathan, looking back at her life and career.
  • Among the stories she shares –
  • How she can’t read sheet music
  • How a car accident curtailed her stint as a dancer
  • Why she turned down the lead in the film South Pacific
  • The time “Young At Heart” co-star Frank Sinatra came to her defense at a birthday party
 You can listen to the full interview and check out a slideshow of historic photographs here: 


  1. Thanks so much for this. She is one of the greatest stars, even though she downplays it. She can do it all and it's all great.

  2. Thank you so much, Quelle! I have to listen to it later when I have time.

  3. :) This is wonderful and has totally made my day. I grew up on Doris Day movies. She just floods my mind with happy memories :) Such a gem! Thanks so much for this!

  4. Thank you so much for posting, what a great find!

  5. I'm so glad everyone enjoyed the interview!!! Thank you all for your comments.


Leave me a comment! If it is a long one, make sure you save a draft of it elsewhere just in case Google gobbles it up and spits it out.
