Arne Fogel, host of The Bing Shift on Jazz88 FM as well as a student and devotee of all things Crosby, relates Bing's career in radio. We talk about how Bing helped define the medium, how he rose to be a multimedia star, his role in changing recording technology, and more.

This episode was recorded at The Booth, the new podcast recording studio at the Sachem Public Library. We thank them as well as this week's guest co-host, Chris DeCristofaro.
