BOB CROSBY

Bob Crosby is an unusual figure in the history of show business. While he had a brother, Bing, who was one of the biggest names in the business, (the first multimedia star, leader in record sales, radio ratings, and motion picture grosses from 1930 to 1954), Bob was both similar enough and different enough not to be overshadowed. They could even work together sharing the same self-effacing and laid-back wit.
Hear how Bob and Bing’s voices and personalities blend in this 1950 aircheck of ‘Let’s Do It Again’…
