August 25: Happy Birthday, Bob Crosby!

Aug 25: Happy Birthday, Bob Crosby!

"Welcome to Bob Crosby's Club Fifteen... [toot toot toot] ... Fifteen Minutes of the best in popular music..."

Every weeknight at 7:30pm, listeners tuned into Club Fifteen.  Debuting in 1947, this fifteen minute musical variety show, sponsored by Campbell's Soup Company, was hosted by charismatic crooner Bob Crosby.  Crosby, brother of Bing and a reknowned Dixieland jazz singer, was joined on the show by The Andrews Sisters and Margaret Whiting and the Modernaires.  (Source = Club 15 with Bob Crosby Old Time Radio Show)
