  • Description
  • Personnel
With the advent of the electronic microphone came the crooners -- elegant, dignified singers who were able to sing softly and intimately to their audiences specifically because of the magic of that new technology. Ian Whitcomb reminisces about the earliest crooners, from Gene Austin to Little Jack Little and traces the rise of the Rudy Vallee, Russ Lombardo and Bing Crosby.
