    "He was the youngest of the six siblings of the famous singer and actor, Bing Crosby. He led his first band in 1935, when the former members of Ben Pollack's band elected him as titular leader. His most famous band was the Bobcats, who were a Dixieland jazz group from within the Bob Crosby Orchestra.
    Both the Bob Crosby Orchestra (big band) and the "Bobcats" small-group specialised in "dixieland" jazz, presaging the traditional jazz "revival" of the 1940's. The Bob Crosby Orchestra and Bobcats included (at one time or another) such hot jazz stars as: Yank Lawson, Billy Butterfiedd, Muggsy Spanier (trumpet / cornet), Matty Matlock, Irving Fazola, Hank D'Amico (clarinet), Warren Smith, Floyd O'Brien, Ward Silloway (trombone), Eddie Miller (tenor sax), Joe Sullivan, Bob Zurke, Jess Stacy (piano), Nappy Lamare (guitar and vocals), Bob Haggart (bass and arrangements), and Ray Bauduc (drums).
    Bob had his own radio show, Club 15, from 1946 through 1952, and a half-hour daytime show, The Bob Crosby Show from 1953 through 1955, both on CBS."
