One couldn't imagine a better opening number for the radio program The Doris Day Show than "It's Magic," for each week between March 1952 and May 1953, the versatile song stylist and beloved motion picture star cast a spell over listeners worldwide with an intimate gathering of famous friends filled with music and laughter. Over the course of five dozen broadcasts of The Doris Day Show-recorded in Hollywood in front of a live audience and happily preserved on 16-inch transcription discs-Doris joined her special guests at the piano for performances of songs she often had never commercially recorded. This is a largely unknown and scarcely documented facet of Doris' career, and Day Time on the Radio brings to light no less than 32 rarities including 27 duets and five solo performances. Among her notable foils are frequent leading man Gordon MacRae, who starred in five pictures with Doris; here the two of them sing a total of four duets, highlighted by their medley of "Cuddle Up a Little Closer"/"Till We Meet Again." Movie stars Kirk Douglas, George Murphy, Ronald Reagan (!), and Broderick Crawford all prove willing and able duet partners, while the more musically inclined Tony Martin, Howard Keel, Smilin' Jack Smith, and Frank Loesser lend their formidable talents to a mix of traditional and Broadway inspired fare. Doris' sparkling solo performance of "Till I Waltz Again with You" finishes Day Time on the Radio with a flourish before a couple of hidden bonus tracks: her renditions of the opening "It's Magic" and closing "Love to Be with You" radio themes sans announcer. Joe Marchese's detailed notes and rare photos round out what is a fantastic addition to the Doris Day discography, the first authorized release ever of her long-lost radio performances.
