Carmel (California, USA) on a large estate

- Can you help me meet Doris?
No. This site is a fan tribute and I don't
have a direct hotline to Ms. Day. As explained
Doris is a very private lady who leads such a
busy life. As much as she is so grateful to her
fans who have supported her over the years she
would never rest if she started meeting all want
to see her. In fact I would suspect she'd spend
her entire life doing nothing else but "meet and

- How did the webmaster discover Doris?
Doris came to my attention back in 1993 whilst
she was riding high in the British 'Top 20'
album charts with the "Hit
Singles Collection". It was shear curiosity
after hearing the catchy-hook of her single
"Move Over, Darling" that encouraged me to
buy this album and find out more about the
singer and her career.
- Why did you decide to build a website on
I discovered Doris in the early 1990s I was just
a teenager and the internet was barely in
existence. I think it would be fair to say that
my generation probably was one of the first to
embrace the internet when it came about. The
problem for me was when I looked online for
websites about Doris there was absolutely
nothing there. Not to be discouraged and with
the help of the now defunct British fanclub, The
Doris Day Society, I slowly but surely
discovered Doris's movies, extensive music
catalogue and a lady who seemingly had a heart
The twist to this tale is that once I clued up
on who she was I decided to teach myself how to
build websites by launching what was a very
basic looking version of the site you see today.
Thus, on the 30 May 1998, "Discovering Doris"
became the very first Doris Day tribute website
on the world wide web.
- Has Doris ever seen this website?
In 1999, I mailed Doris a printed version of
this website. I later received a lovely letter
from the great lady. Click

- Are you the same "Stephen" behind those
Doris Day CDs?
Yes. As the site blossomed so did my
appreciation of Doris's music and my involvement
in the music industry. This led to my work
coordinating a number of Doris Day related CD
projects - the most significant of which was the
'80th birthday' tribute CD set ("Her
Life in Music") which Doris kindly
