I have been a Crosby fan for about 70 years, but have had a lap-top only over the past year.
I have searched the Crosby references on the internet and have been disappointed with the formality of what I have found so far.
There seems to be nothing like the lively,free-flowing discussions enjoyed by members of the Fred Astaire Club(30,000 contributions so far).
This Forum comes nearest to it, but it's still far too formal,in my opinion.
Please check out the Astaire link to see what I mean.
I feel we could keep Crosby's memory so much more in the forefront of people's thoughts if we adopted some of the Astaire Club techniques.
I hope these comments will bear fruit.

Try "Steven Lewis' Bing Crosby Internet Museum" and check out the bulletin board. There is plenty of discussion there.

Today marks the 30th anniversary of Bing's death.
I shall be remembering him by playing a CD called 'Bix and Bing' and a DVD of'Rhythm on the River'.Lots of fond and happy memories there.
I would be inteested to hear how others are marking the day.

It was good to hear Peter Aliss mention the anniversary in his golf commentary at Wentworth today. He played a Crosby/Andrews Sisters record too!
Did anyone hear or see any other references during the day?

Great to read in the Radio Times today that the BBC are to broadcast a major series on the life of Bing Crosby: "On The Crosby Trail"--Radio 2 Friday November 2nd at 7pm for 6 weeks! Just what we needed to raise the profile of the great man. Essential listening for Fridays,eh?
