I wish Wayne a very Happy Birthday. I am a few minutes behind Vegas time, I know his birthday is the 3rd, and it is 12:10am in Vegas now.

Happy, Happy, Birthday to the best ever performer I have ever seen.

DORIS DAY LOVE FEST TO AIR SUNDAY, APRIL 18TH
@ 3:00PM (EST) on www.frednetradio.com

Calling all DORIS DAY FANS!!!! www.frednetradio.com will rebroadcast their very special DORIS DAY BIRTHDAY TRIBUTE SHOW on Sunday, April 18th at 3:00PM (EST). It is an incredible 3-hour show featuring calls from some of her famous celebrity friends: Betty White, Tony Bennett, Debbie Reynolds, Vicki Lawrence, Jackie Joseph, Dr Robert Schuller, Janis Paige, Rose Marie, Billy Gray, Les Brown, Jr., Bruce ‘Beach Boy’ Johnston and his wife, Harriett, Mayor Sue McCloud of Carmel, CA, and Wayne Newton who was also celebrating his birthday. In addition, there were calls from all around the world - Slovenia, Greece, France, Belgium and England, and from the four corners of the USA.

“We wanted it to be a real tribute to Miss Day on her very special day and we invited her friends and fans to call in to leave their personal message. Doris is loved around the world and we offered people an opportunity to share their best wishes with her. One after another shared the reason they loved her from Mya June, age 7, to Betty, age 87, and many in between from all walks of life. It was a real DORIS DAY LOVE FEST. We had nine versions of “Happy Birthday” playing throughout the show from a full blown symphony version at the start of the show to one with dogs barking to the tune. In addition to the callers, many sent e-mails which were read during the show adding to the excitement of the day,” said Mike DeVita, host of this special show and also host of his weekly “DORIS DAY & FRIENDS show on FredNetRadio.

Keith Angstadt, VP and General Manager of FredNetRadio is a big Doris Day fan, too, and he loves good music. His station plays the best music of the 40s, 50s and 60s with at least 4 Doris Day songs an hour. Keith had a CD of the whole show sent to Doris to enjoy.

Even though Doris Day has been out of the limelight for nearly 40 years, her popularity has grown and younger people are discovering Doris Day in a variety of ways with the internet and movies shown on TV more and more. Her animal activism is another venue where people share an interest.
