Bing Crosby performed briefly as a vaudeville drummer before moving into radio as a member of the Rhythm Boys on Paul Whiteman’s 1929-30 Old Gold broadcasts. His recording of "I Surrender, Dear" led to his 1931-32 CBS show Fifteen Minutes with Bing Crosby. He made his feature-film debut in Paramount’s The Big Broadcast in 1932 and became a top radio and movie star over the next decade. Crosby hosted NBC’s The Kraft Music Hall from January 2, 1936 through May 9, 1946, supported by Bob Burns, "the Arkansas Traveler," and music directors Jimmy Dorsey and John Scott Trotter. Crosby moved to ABC’s Philco Radio Time in 1946, eager to transcribe his radio programs using editing techniques pioneered on AFRS’ Command Performance. The crooner returned to CBS to star in The Bing Crosby Show from September 21, 1949 through December 28, 1956.
