Well, well, Archiefit! Easily so far my favourite edition of your "Library of Sound". I loved how you worked Bing's rare and lively 1960 recording of "It's a Good Day" into the April Fool's Day theme. Lovely! Plus Bing's self effacing explanation of the origins of the day itself were most enlightening. Also, it was the first time I'd heard his haunting, atmospheric recording of "The River". Wonderful to hear Bing singing something so different in style and tone.

How seemingly prescient his graceful, humorous and conciliatory comments were with regard to the 1954 Academy Awards. What would he have made of the recent, not quite so graceful events at this year's? There's a wonderful gag photograph of his broadcast's afore mentioned "Road" buddy and of course the emcee that year, Bob Hope and Bing's fellow, but now victorious nominee Marlon Brando, staging a fight (over Brando's statuette) on that night in 1955. Who would have thought?
Keep up the good work! 

I've also just sent you another Private Message.
