Twice weekly for six years, Dinah Shore starred in this live 15-minute musical show that occupied the remainder of the half hour that included the NBC network news. Dinah sang, often gave her accompanist Ticker Freeman a chance to do featured solos, and occasionally had guest stars with whom she chatted and performed.
On 11 August 2009 the US Postal Service issued a pane of twenty 44¢; commemorative postage stamps honoring early USA television programs. A booklet with 20 picture postal cards was also issued. The stamp honoring "The Dinah Shore Show" pictured its star, Dinah Shore throwing a kiss (the show's signature ending).
