Thanks for this, Laura. I had never seen it. It's amazing, I think, that Bing, who dominated American popular culture for something like 30 years, has almost disappeared from the cultural landscape.

I love Bing and don't quite understand the either/or mentality that suggests that if you like Sinatra you can't like Crosby, s formula that works whether you fill in the blanks with Ella and Billie, or Mantle and Mays, or Keats and Shelley. -- DL

Me either. I think you can like what you like!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
