Availability: Ready to download

Before Oprah…before Ellen…there was Dinah Shore. She was the queen of the afternoon talk show. For over five decades, Dinah induced a state of joy into people wherever she appeared, a love affair between her and her audience. In the fickle world of popular music, Dinah had a longer run at the top than any other girl singer, and on television, she had no equal in the musical Before Oprah…before Ellen…there was Dinah Shore. She was the queen of the afternoon talk show. For over five decades, Dinah induced a state of joy into people wherever she appeared, a love affair between her and her audience. In the fickle world of popular music, Dinah had a longer run at the top than any other girl singer, and on television, she had no equal in the musical field. Arguably, she was “the first lady of television.” Dinah’s life, however, was not always easy. She was a Jewish girl growing up in the Deep South and, at an early age, suffered a bout with polio. Later, as she was just achieving success as a radio/recording artist, a vicious rumor threatened to scuttle her career. Romantically, the lady was been involved with many men, from her first husband, actor George Montgomery, to Frank Sinatra, to her May/December affair with Burt Reynolds. Then, there were the clandestine relationships. Miss Dinah Shore is the candid story of a beloved woman whose career spanned almost all aspects of show business, from radio, records, movies, television variety and talk shows: a remarkable journey.

    Warm Feel Goods I enjoyed reading this biography very much. Dinah Shore was part of my growing up years. When her shows came on, my family would all gather around the television, with snacks, and enjoy wonderful entertainment. Her lovely manner and beautiful voice, along with her variety of guests, made for a terrific night's entertainment. I also learned about her life and career, her relationships, many details of which I was unaware.

    Poorly Edited and Thoroughly Superficial To begin with the text is totally superficial indicating poor research by the author...I learned nothing new or interesting about her life. No in depth information is offered. Worse was the editing. Sentences that abruptly end and the misspelling is reminiscent of an eight year old. Nothing worse than spending time on a worthless book. Don’t waste your time.

    Informative and enjoyable A relaxed, well researched look into the life and career of a performer I grew up watching on daytime tv but never knew much about.

    Miss Dinah Shore: A Biography : Michael B. Druxman An unauthorized biography of Dinah Shore. I have vague memories of her tv shoe from when I was growing up. I did learn some things I didn't know about her. It was an interesting listen. The narration was well done. Pam Dougherty did well and in places even a bit of a Tennessee accent. "I was voluntarily provided this review copy audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator." Miss Dinah Shore: A Biography : Michael B.
