The spring 2010  issue of BING magazine is now available and contains the exciting news of the PBS special The Legendary Bing Crosby and the plethora of new CDs being issued by Collectors’ Choice Music and Bing Crosby Enterprises. Full details are given of these most welcome releases which will be greeted with excitement by Bing fans everywhere.  The magazine has a detailed review of the wonderful 7-CD set issued by Mosaic Records as well as information about the original recording sessions undertaken by Bing for his 1954-56 radio show. We say farewell to the Bing Crosby Internet Museum and to Bing’s Friends & Collectors Society as well as Crosby stalwarts Bob Neate and Phil Clarke.

It was the 75th anniversary of Elvis Presley’s birth in January and Greg Van Beek finds some surprising parallels between Bing and Elvis.  Martin McQuade reviews the new autobiography from Andy Williams and John Newton looks at Bing’s rarest broadcast pressings. Keith Parkinson is there with his film section and considers two of the worst films featuring Mr. Crosby. Carolyn Schneider tells of meeting Regis Philbin (who has now become an honorary member of the ICC) and J. Richard Baker describes some incredible analysis of an early Bing track. There is a full review of the busy media scene of recent months and Gord Atkinson looks at Victor Borge, another who worked closely with Bing. Ken Crossland considers the new releases in his Keeping Track column and so it goes on! This will prove to be one of our most memorable editions – don’t miss it!
