Well done, gents - most enjoyable!

Glad we showed the musical moments from Going My Way last Saturday!

Choosing 5 favourite films is no easier than choosing 5 records, really!

Like you, Jeremy, I NEVER watch The One Show! Just like you, I received a telephone call 15 mins before the programme started from BING magazine editor Malcolm Macfarlane (who obviously knew in advance) to give me the ‘heads up’.

There was a nice contribution from Frank Skinner, too, regarding Bing’s comedy skills.

I have to say, I’m really enjoying the new album. I’m sure it will help open the door to Bing’s output for a lot of new listeners...

Hello Zane. Sorry to hear you are having to offload your Bing collection. Do you by chance have the Max Sennet shorts on good quality DVD?
Thanks
Jace

It was a bit of a let down. I’d been looking forward to that. I was hoping it would be the first of the Sennett shorts with the rest to follow. Disappointing.

Yes, it was most enjoyable. I hadn't seen the 'Tonight' interview before, in which Bing's comments proved somewhat ironic considering his death was just a few days away.

I've noticed this before, but Bing seemed so much more 'alive' during his second Parkinson interview in comparison to the first 3 years earlier.

I think the narrator, Sylvia Sims, might be a fan as I once heard her refer to Bing as 'the divine Bing!'

During his interview with Anne Hopper, Malcolm referred to a member in Warrington, UK who is keen to organise local Crosby gatherings. Well, I am said member!

If you would be interested to participate in local gatherings and you are within easy reach of the Warrington, Cheshire area, please contact me via the Private Message facility in the left-hand pane of this post.

Hope to hear from you soon!
