• Bing CROSBY - Going Hollywood, Vol. 1: 1930-1936

Out on the West Coast of America, in Spokane, Washington, in 1925, two young men decided to 'up roots' and leave their home town. Of little significance except to the people involved, you might say there was nothing unusual about such an event. History was to prove otherwise. Outside of studying law and working afternoons in an attorney's office, Bing Crosby spent most of his time singing and playing drums in a local band called The Musicaladers. Soon realising he could make more money as a singer than by pursuing a career in the legal profession, he dropped out of Gonzaga University and with Musicalader pianist Al Rinker set off for California to find fame and fortune. The date October 15, a date that heralded the launch of a young man destined to become one of the most popular entertainers of all time. Indeed, some would say the most popular. Arriving in Los Angeles the following month, they auditioned and were hired by the Fanchon & Marco Time Agency to appear in a revue entitled "The Syncopation Idea". In April 1926 they joined Will Morrissey's Music Hall Revue, an engagement that lasted into August when, under the auspices of Paramount.
