Thank you so much for letting me join your merry and knowledgable group. I have been fascinated with our boy Bing -along with Errol Flynn, Betty Hutton, John Wayne and others - for sometime now. I even gave a talk at the Bing symposium on Long Island many years back (regarding his Box Office dominance). It was there that I met and spoke with Mr. Giddins for a spell. The announcement of his Vol 2 is what brought me out of the woodwork. I find I am constantly singing or at least humming Bing's songs throughout the day as my children will attest - sometimes grumbly!
Welcome RickG from Graham 'Down Under'. The Hofstra conference was great but I don't believe I managed to attend your session.
