Ray Charles in Dinah! (1975)

Dinah Shore hosted Dinah! between 1974 and 1981. It was a 90-minute variety talk show. mentions Ray Charles as a guest in episode 79 of the first season, aired on 20 February 1975: "Dinah's guests are actor-comedian Shelley Berman, singer-songwriter Paul Williams, R&B singer Ray Charles, Country singer Tammy Wynette, singer Maureen McGovern and Three Dog Night." Ray performed Born To Lose and Hey Jude, the same episode guide says. The episode aired again on 23 June 1975. 
A rendition of Hey Jude seems a bit improbable (it would be the only known performance of the song by Ray Charles). Maybe it was a duet with Dinah?
