The spring edition of BING magazine (#139) is now available from The International Club Crosby.

The important developments in the USA since our last issue are described in depth by Greg Van Beek, Martin McQuade and Judy Schmid. Greg gives us the fascinating background to the Christmas at the Hollywood Palace TV special and Martin describes the marvellous New York tribute at the Donnell branch of the New York Public Library. Judy Schmid provides a blow-by-blow account of the opening of the new Bing Crosby Restaurant in California.

Tributes following the recent deaths of Crosby stalwarts Lionel Pairpoint, Virgil Edwards and Sister Mary Francis Moore are made and there is further news of the Crosby estate’s legal battle with MCA. Contributions from all the regulars include Wayne Martin who looks back at ‘Bing before Brunswick’ and Keith Parkinson who considers the British Film Institute’s listing of the most successful films seen in the UK as well as continuing his A-Z of Bing’s movie career. Bert Bishop reports on Bing on radio and TV since our last issue and Ken Crossland examines the new CD and DVD releases.
