,Unusually for the big Band era Dinah was turned down by Benny Goodman, and both Tommy & Jimmy Dorsey and went on to forge a successful solo career on Records, Radio, and Television.
"In March 1939, Dinah debuted on national radio on the Sunday afternoon CBS radio program, Ben Bernie's Orchestra. In February 1940, Dinah Shore became a featured vocalist on the NBC Radio program The Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street, a showcase for traditional Dixieland and Blues songs. With Shore, the program became so popular that it was moved from 4:30 Sunday afternoon to a 9:00 Monday night time slot in September. In her prime-time debut for "the music of the Three Bs, Barrelhouse, Boogie-woogie and the Blues", she was introduced as "Mademoiselle Dinah 'Diva' Shore, who starts a fire by rubbing two notes together!"
Sooner Or Later
Words by Ray Gilbert
Music by Charles Wolcott
You and I said goodbye
With a friendly kiss
And though I'm not the surest kind,
I'm kinda sure of this:
Sooner or later you're gonna be comin' around, I'll betcha;
I'll betcha that I getcha, you wait and see.
Sooner or later you'll wanna be hangin' around, I'll letcha;
I'll betcha if I letcha, you'll baby me.
You're gonna knock on my door
You did it before
Matter o'factly I don't know exactly when.
But sooner or later you're gonna be comin' around and want my lovin' again.
