Bing Crosby Show - March 26, 1953

August 20th, 2009

We come to the final entry I'll be posting in the series of "Bing Crosby Show" aircheck discs in my collection.

transcription label

Bing returns to sing a bit and give us a soft sell for GE home appliances in this show from March 26, 1953.  After kicking off the show with "Bye Bye Blues" (a song that, oddly, he performed just a few weeks ago on the series), Bing talks with announcer Ken Carpenter about the crooner's upcoming GE sales trip to Europe on the Queen Elizabeth.  Guests on the show are Rosemary Clooney and the ever-present Joe Venuti.

The program was transferred from an original Radio Recorders lacquer aircheck recorded from KCBS/KCBS-FM, San Francisco.

    Again you’ve saved me waiting for when I should burn a cd by telling me that this is the last.
