Fifty Years of Bing

Saturday 9 September 2006 10:30-11:00 (Radio 4 FM)


Paul Gambaccini recalls classic concerts.

In the sweltering summer of 1976, Bing Crosby chose to celebrate 50 years in showbusiness with a concert for his fans in London. On stage again for the first time in 40 years, he appeared with special guest Rosemary Clooney, plus Bing's wife and children. But for the medley of 33 of his greatest hits, he was alone. Even in his 70s, Bing was still magic; the pioneer of the microphone had lost none of his skill, and the audience will never forget that night.
