The Billboard – Apr. 9, 1955

HOLLYWOOD, April 2 – Danny Kaye and his wife, Sylvia Fine, have made their first entry in the music publishing field with the formation of Dena Music Company in partnership with Fred Raphael. New firm will be affiliated with ASCAP.

Dena Music will publish all songs written by Miss Fine for performance by her husband, as well as music of other writers. First release of the new company will be the score for Kaye’s Dena Enterprise production of “The Court Jester,” a Paramount release, with words and music by Miss Fine and Sammy Cahn.

Mrs. Kaye holds the position of president of the firm; Danny Kaye is vice-president and Raphael will be secretary and general manager. Raphael left for New York last week to conclude arrangements for foreign publishing rights to all Dena Music songs. He will continue with the operation of his own firm, Fred Raphael Music, Inc.
