Bing Crosby and the Sounds of Christmas special on CBS from 1971 with Robert Goulet and Bing’s real life family, who also appeared in Minute Maid orange juice commercials together during this period. Bing Crosby was perhaps the most influential crooner of the 20th century.

In terms of pop, it’s doubtful anyone will ever come along again who could master any style of music so effortlessly. Right up to the end, on his last Christmas special in 1977, when he sang that stunning duet with David Bowie.

Although he rose to fame as a teenybopper recording star in the 1920s, fifty years later Bing’s voice was still in tip top form. He was a consummate performer.

This lovely Christmas Medley with Bing and The Lennon Sisters originally aired on December 21, 1968, as part of The Hollywood Palace Christmas episode hosted by Bing and and his wife Kathryn Crosby.

The Hollywood Palace Christmas program starring Bing Crosby with Dorothy Collins and the Hogan's Heroes cast. Broadcast Christmas night in 1965.


Bing Crosby & Frank Sinatra teamed up for a snappy medley of familiar Christmas carols on Frank’s short-lived weekly series in 1957, singing those tunes they were most noted for around the holidays.

Definitive versions of the Tin Pan Alley carols as performed by Crosby, Sinatra, Andy Williams and Perry Como will be forever etched into every Baby Boomer’s Christmas psyche.

His recordings reached the charts 396 times - more than Frank Sinatra (209) and Elvis Presley (149) combined.
