Doris Day: “the website you have done on me is incredible”
It was back in 1993, after a surge of promotion for Doris Day’s best-selling
British CD, “The Hit Singles Collection”, that I got to hear the sixties
pop-tune ‘Move Over Darling’. My CD and video collection as well as an
appreciation for the American entertainer quickly grew from that moment onwards.
In 1998, after becoming quite intrigued by the wonders of the world wide web I
decided to have a go at creating the first ever Doris Day website – a place
where people could “Discover Doris” (Now that is a good idea for a name!).
A year on, my website had become a hive of activity with fans writing me from
all over the world. The time was now right to show Ms. Day exactly what I had
done. So, I printed out in book-form all of the pages from the site and posted
them to her in Carmel (California). To my absolute joy she very kindly replied.
Her kind words of enthusiasm became the inspiration I needed to continue
developing and maintaining this tribute-site.
“The website that you have done on me is incredible and I just want to say
thank you for sending it to me. I think it’s fantastic that you’ve done all
this…” – Doris Day
