This time around we have been particularly flooded with wonderful pieces on various aspects of Bing’s life and career. Wherever you are, I hope that you’ll enjoy reading this new spring issue and that the articles it contains will bring a smile to your face. John Newton makes a welcome return to our pages and all the regulars are there too. There's a list of the contents below.


And there’s another wonderful Bing 2-CD set from Sepia Records to order as well!


Our front cover this time is a typical picture of Bing on the golf course and our back cover shows him with Joan Fontaine in "Emperor Waltz".


Happy reading!
