Rare Original Survivors - Bing Crosby and the Kraft Music Hall


Those lucky ICC members who have ordered this CD are likely to be receiving their copy any time now or in the fairly near future. What a treat! Very good sound for radio material of the period.

Quite a few unique titles, all right from the start of Bing's KMH residency, and including a large chunk of Bing's contribution to the very first show which he shared with his old boss Paul Whiteman.

Complete with Whiteman's introduction and Bing's response and introductions of his songs.
Sorry about dates - I'm using the format d/m/y
