Ray Charles On The Dinah Shore (Chevy) Show (1963)
The integral 58m47s Dinah Shore Show that was aired by NBC on January 23, 1963, is embedded below.
I strongly advise to watch the whole show; it’s a gem. It seems to be totally in tact, as originally broadcast (although I suspect that the original was in color). With filmed and inscripted studio commercials and all. With the infamous hand that Dinah put on Ray’s shoulder. But above all: with a mini concert by Ray Charles, with his Orchestra, and with The Raelettes.
The only thing that seems to be missing, compared with several television history sources, is a rendition of Georgia On My Mind, but I think these sources were wrong on this detail.
