    Donna Loren performs the Tony Hatch penned "Call Me" on a TV teen variety show on 2-4-65. Arranged by none other than Jack Nitzsche and produced by saxaphonist extraordinaire Steve Douglas. Tony Hatch wrote many of Petula Clark's hits including "Downtown". This record introduced a new, softer vocal style for Donna. Released by Capitol Records in 1965.

    Donna Loren was the one-and-only "Dr Pepper Girl" from 1963 to 1968. She was signed to a long-term contract with the soft-drink company to sing all television and radio commercials, do all magazine and billboard advertising representing them in every capacity, sometimes sharing the spotlight with American Bandstand’s Dick Clark. This relationship led to her touring in Dick Clark’s Caravan of Stars with other popular acts like The Supremes and singing solos in the popular Beach Party films starring Annette Funicello and Frankie Avalon. Later, she became the regular female vocalist on the popular 60's American live rock ‘n roll TV show "Shindig" and she appeared in singing and acting roles in many popular TV shows like Batman, Gomer Pyle, The Mothers-In-Law, Red Skelton, Milton Berle and various game shows.
