Swingin with Bing: Lost Radio Performances
Bing Crosby was easily the most popular personality in radio history. These 57 radio performances begin, fittingly, with Crosby's career-defining rendition of Swinging on a Star on the Kraft Music Hall show in 1944, and include such dream finds for Crosby collectors as Bing's performance of It's Magic, his only version of the song ever released, and renditions of My Foolish Heart and for You, for Me, Forever More. Then there are the duets-33 of them, including numerous tandems with Nat King Cole (Sam's Song), the Andrews Sisters (Don't Fence Me In), Louis Armstrong (Blueberry Hill) and other luminaries, plus instrumental accompaniment from the likes of Joe Venuti, Red Nichols and Les Paul. Essential American pop culture.
