Wow! Time flew by. I want to dial O for O'Malley.
I lived in Reading at the time.
Been out to dinner at my wife's cousin's place.
Got home and it was News time on TV and Bing's photo came up on the screen - then the sad announcement.
I was three so I did not know at the time what a sad day it was.
Bing Is In My Thoughts Especially Today.He Died Three YearS Before I Was born.I Wish ICould've Met Him. He May Be Gone But He Is Definitely Alive In My Heart.
I was in my third year out of college and third year of marriage and third year of working in graphic arts departments in little companies in Chicago. My Crosby record collection consisted of about 90 minutes worth of his 78s, and I was largely ignorant of what Bing had been doing recently, except for occasional TV appearances. Still, the news greatly saddened me.
