Watching the JLTV show. Great that they got the all the rights for all of the show. You cannot just slap this stuff up anymore on Youtube. Gotta pay someone. Not on my Comcast tier but the JLTV live stream will do with my laptop to my Sony XBR via HDMI. Gotta figure out streaming recording.

A show from 1961 with a "See The USA In Your Chevrolet" singing number at the end. Great guests. Jackie and Roy were jazz singers for 50 years. Dick Van Dyke singing and dancing. Laurence Harvey doing Shakespere. A three camera show with amazing matching of color. George Schlatter and Tony Charmoli producing. Charmoli also doing the choreography. Only one camera had a sort of overdrive on the left side. A roundie would have covered all of it. And a few razor splices in the show.

Go JLTV...and I am Lutheran.

Dinah was Jewish, rather odd for a little girl in Tennessee back then.

To a Chicago boy's ears, her touch of a Southern accent was like pure honey.

Hers was perhaps a BIT on the "Contrived" side... One of US can always tell when someone is "Puttin' on "Airs" w/the Southern drawl. Subtle, but its there. Hers was/is a LOT better than most, though.. We CAN "Turn it Up or Down"... When I went up to Cape Cod to meet my future wife's family, I cranked mine up to "11" or "12"... Dropped a LOT of "Yes, Ma'ams", & "No, Ma'ams", too. Had 'em eatin' outta my hand... Was SCARED to death of 'em, initially, but they were/are LOVELY people. I think even my paternal granny, who was a REAL "Jawja Cracker", would have approved... (grin)

Her parents probably owned a clothing or dry-goods store. OY! :D

Her father would often take her to his store where she would perform impromptu songs for the customers. In 1924, the Shore family moved to McMinnville, Tennessee, where her father had opened a department store. By her fifth-grade year the family had moved to Nashville, Tennessee, where she completed elementary school

Speaking as a former West Tennessee native, if you listen to Dinah's recordings from the 1940's and 50's, her accent was a blend of McMinnville-rural with Nashville-educated and it worked! By the time of her TV shows, with great effort, she had lost that speech "problem", but then found it was good business to add a bit of southern drawl back in.

In Tennessee, before television, one could travel a few miles and the accent was completely different.

When I moved to Georgia in 1959, I had no trouble understanding the people of Atlanta, but once you were ten miles away from the city, I needed a translator!

Sorry if the detour is bothering anyone, but I love learning about regional accents - I wish we had a recorded example of everything mentioned above. This brings back memories of one grade school teacher who had distinctly different pronunciations for "merry," "Mary" and "marry," all of which are identical in my part of the world.

I grew up in McMinnville Tennessee and I remember the building it was at from what I was told about it At one time I believe it was a camera store. She was from Winchester originally. I have talked to some of the old timers that knew about the place. I think they were here in the 20s and the store was called Shores. McMinnville was also home to Dottie West. She was my dads cousin but I never got the chance to meet her.
