Dinah Shore Tidbits

WAV – Dinah singing her signature, “See the USA in a Cheverolet…”

Dinah Shore was this lovely lady who was welcomed into American homes for over 25 years. She was also one of the first women to have her own show.

She started in radio in the late Thirties, was recording by the Forties, and was on TV by the Fifties. Her first show (The Dinah Shore Show) was on twice weekly and filled the spot unfilled by the then 15 minute evening news.

The custom back then was for a single sponsor to place their name upon a show and so her next venture was a variety show named The Dinah Shore Chevy Show.

Ms. Shore used to end her show by singing, “See the USA in your Chevrolet” and then tossing the audience a big kiss. (See picture below)
