Cincinnati native Doris Day opens up this week's edition of Swing with Bill Cartwright which will air on Saturday, April 4th at 10pm.  She'll be singing "Pretty Baby" from the album, Young Man with a Horn.  That's followed by the great Buddy Rich and vocalist Rod Stewart.  During the rest of the first half of Swing, you'll hear from Louis Armstrong, June Christy, and Glenn Miller.

On this Swing Valentine's Day special, Bill begins with a Frank Sinatra selection, "You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To" followed by Linda Ronstadt's "What'll I Do." 

Later in the program, you'll hear Billie Holiday, the Four Freshmen, and Maxine Sullivan.  The romantic Swing show ends with Doris Day's "I Can't Give You Anything But Love" and Ted Heath's salute to Glenn Miller, "Moonlight Serenade."

To celebrate Cincinnati native Doris Day’s 90th birthday on April 3, Lee Hay talks with vocalist Kristi King who stars as Doris in a stage show called Que Sera! Celebrating Doris Day.

It looks like it’s going to be a busy week in our fair city. Monday is opening day for the 2014 Reds’ season, with the annual parade and all that goes with it. Tuesday is April Fool’s Day, which can be one of the most important days of the year for the seriously zany. And Thursday, April 3rd is an important milestone in Cincinnati history, for it was on that day ninety years ago that Doris Mary Ann Kappelhoff was born. Of course, we all know her better as Doris Day.
