  • show Description
  • Welcome to Dinah! hosted by Dinah Shore, this 90-minute variety talk show with her usual flair of grace, style and class. Generous, soft spoken and the epitome of a Southern Belle, her guests were always charmed by her genuine interest in their lives. Dinah! featured the John Rodby Orchestra or John Rodby and the Super Band as they became known. The title of the series changed in it's sixth season to Dinah and Friends with a co-host on a rotating term. They included her good friend Charles Nelson Reilly, Don Meredith, Paul Williams and Fernando Lamas. Dinah started out the 70's with a half-hour talk show titled, Dinah's Place, usually featured one guest and was more of a home oriented show about cooking, crafts and occasionally music. This format lasted until May of 1974.moreless
