In this love letter to his father, former professional golfer Nathaniel Crosby shares memories of Bing Crosby on the golf course and the lessons he taught him about the game and about life. With a foreword by Jack Nicklaus. ´´Bing Crosby was a great ambassador for our game as well as a great man,´´ hails longtime friend and golf partner Jack Nicklaus. The beloved singer and star was also an extraordinary teacher who instilled an abiding passion and mastery of the game in his youngest son, Nathaniel. Winning the US Amateur at 19, Nathaniel went on to compete in high-level professional tournaments for his entire life. In 18 Holes with Bing, Nathaniel introduces us to the Bing Crosby he and his family knew - not the beloved singer who played golf but a golfer who sang to pay his country club dues. Nathaniel shares exclusive stories about this American icon golfing, working, and playing with some of the most famous people in history - royalty, titans of industry, stars of stage and screen, and champions of the green, including Bob Hope, Dwight Eisenhower, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, and Louis Armstrong. At the book´s heart is an intimate account of a father and a son - how a mutual love of golf formed an exceptional emotional bond. Full of anecdotes, vignettes, and recollections of Bing´s time on the course, the tournaments he created and later sponsored, and the constant encouragement he showed his son, 18 Holes with Bing honors this celebrated golfer, entertainer, and father and illuminates his life as never before. 1.

(Dolly/Star-Club) 12 tracks - Re-issue of the original 1961 ´Mercury´ LP album ´A Dynamic Singing Personality . .´ This description by a noted critic, referring to Damita Jo, is a fitting tribute to Mercury´s tiny singing sensation. Born in Austin, Texas, her New Orleans-born parents named her Damita Jo Dublanc (´Little Lady Of White´). An only child, show-ered and guided by the love and talent of an artist mother, Damita began to ´sing out´ long before she could walk. In Santa Barbara, California, where her family moved from Austin, she was quickly recognized as ´Star Material´ as she was her high school´s leading performer and choreographer. After college, during the post World War II years, Damita began to make her mark in Los Angeles night spots and was in constant demand for radio and television appearances. Hollywood had beckoned for her when she was a youngster of 13, but her dad wanted her to stick to her lessons, and nixed a screen test and an offer to tutor her for dancing roles. Her first records were recorded on a Spanish label while she was still in her teens. In 1951 she was signed as featured singer with Steve Gibson & his Red Caps. This led to appearances around the country and starring stints on the nation´s top TV outings. It was with the Red Caps that she attracted national attention. Some of her early 50´s recordings were released on an RCA album in the mid 60´s. In 1958 she decided that the time was right to make it on her own. She signed with Mercury Records and recorded in 1960 ´I´ll Save The Last Dance For You´, her first hit that reached No 22 on the Billboard list. The song was an answer to The Drifters hit ´Save The Last Dance For Me´. She had two more hits in 1961: ´Keep Your Hands Off Of Him´ (which reached No 75) and the slow ´I´ll Be There´ (which reached No 12). In 1961 she also had a big hit in Sweden with ´Dance With A Dolly´, however this song had no success in the US. She also had a minor hit in 1966 with ´If You Go Away´ on EPIC Records. Damita Jo, in short, was a singer in the top rank of girl vocalists in the 50´s and early 60´s. The Big Bopper
Rupert P. Brown’s biggest worry about sixth grade is it might be, well, a little bit dull. After all, how can a fellow be expected to top a fifth grade year in which his best friend was kidnapped, and he found out his best teacher ever was a real, honest-to-goodness witch? But when Rupert types the word ´´computowitch´´ in an e-mail message, his screen goes all green, and then his parakeet starts giving him math lessons. He knows it can only mean one thing: Miss Switch is back! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeff Woodman. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/reco/005760de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3.
