Bing Crosby ended his decade-long run on NBC’s Kraft Music Hall in 1946, moving to ABC to star in the transcribed Philco Radio Time after NBC refused to let him pre-record his shows. The crooner was impressed with the editing techniques developed for programs like Command Performance by the engineers of the Armed Forces Radio Service and believed listeners would accept a more tightly edited program even if it was "canned." In 1948, Philco Radio Time made history as the first series recorded on Ampex tape recorders.
