A great cover starts off
issue #145 as it means to go on. We have a real scoop — an interview with
the last surviving member of the Music Maids, Alice Ludes, now aged 94! Mrs.
Ludes has a fascinating tale to tell of working with Bing in the late 1930s and
our thanks are due to Judy Schmid for interviewing
Gord Atkinson looks at the work of Bob Crosby, Keith Parkinson highlights the Star Night At The Cocoanut Grove short and the A-Z of Bing’s movies has reached Say One For Me. Ken Crossland reviews the latest issues on CD and DVD, Bert Bishop looks at Bing on the Box and the regular features of ‘Trading Post’ and ‘One Sweet Letter From You’ are included as usual. The Books ‘n’ Bing section has a fascinating comparison of Bing and Frank Sinatra.
But there’s far too much to list here, so get your copy as soon as possible.
