Hello from Shrewsbury, UK

Hi everyone! My name is John and I am from Shrewsbury in the UK. 

Thanks for letting me join this board. I first got interested in Bing because of my late Grandfather who was a massive fan. He used to tell me about seeing his films in the 30s and 40s, and how much he and other soldiers valued his support during WW2. 

I inherited his Bing LPs when he died, and have a number of CDs. I am currently reading A Pocketful of Dreams by Gary Giddins.

Anyway, great to be here!

Welcome to the Bing Bunker where we all hide out from the Wuhan Virus.  A place where Bing is playing somewhere at all times!

Thanks for the welcome everyone. 

Malcolm: Thank you for the offer, but Michael Crampton has already sent me a copy. I liked it so much I have joined ICC.

Welcome John from a Bathurstian (220 kms west of Sydney, Australia) so I suppose I'm as far from Shrewsbury as one could be.
