S03-E20 We feature Bing Crosby and one of the episodes from his long-running radio program that had a Christmas theme. Bing Crosby was a remarkable entertainer that performed on the stage, radio, film, and television during the middle of the 20th century. His singing ranged from traditional pop, to easy listening, to vocal jazz, and country. He had diverse interests including co-ownership of the Pittsburgh Pirates baseball team during which the team won two World Series in 1960 and 1971. He was a technology pioneer with investing in audio recording equipment following World War Two and using the same with his radio shows. He also had a television production studio as well. Among shows produced through his studio was the popular Hogan’s Heroes. For me, I most think about Mr. Crosby and his movies that are often broadcast at this holiday time including Holiday Inn and White Christmas. It is hard to forget his rendition of “It’s a White Christmas.”

In addition to this audio episode, I also provide several PDF documents: first, a biography of Mr. Crosby, second, a filmography, third, an overview of his radio show, and finally, a description of his radio work supporting the U.S. troops during World War Two.
