  • show Description
  • The Dinah Shore Chevy Show premiered in 1956 as a series of monthly specials, the following season it became a weekly series filled with wonderful guests performing in skits, songs and dance. Dinah's warm and friendly style endeared her to all, that Southern charm and her talent won over a nation. The trademark theme song "See the U.S.A. in your Chevrolet" was followed by a resounding kiss "Mwah!" which she gave the audience at the end of each show.moreless
