Looking Back: Doris Day

Here’s a known fact about myself. I have always liked singer and actress Doris Day (who is now 91 years old) ever since I was a kid, and her albums were always played around the house – fond memories! 🙂 I love the old great artists from the 40s, 50s and 60s etc., they include Mario Lanza, Frank Sinatra, Dusty Springfield, Nat King Cole and more – legends!
