BING for the SEASONS: The MUSIC of BING CROSBY
JAZZ FM (HVPR.ORG), on the first Sunday of the month at 7 pm, is pleased to present the music of Bing Crosby.
Bing Crosby, a singer with a golden baritone and intimate and engaging vocal style, set the standard for every popular American singer who followed. His “stats” as a performer are astonishing: with over 2000 recordings; 43 #1 hits; 23 official gold records; first Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award; 3 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for motion pictures, radio and recordings; 3 Academy Award nominations and Best Actor for Going My Way; Best selling single of all time (White Christmas); and top box office star for 15 years.
Each month (with encore broadcasts scheduled throughout the year), Bing for the Seasons, an hour-long program hosted by International Club Crosby member, Jack Boyle, features Bing’s seasonal best from his extraordinary catalogue of recordings from the American songbook.
