7/29-Andy Williams

Andy Williams-Singer & Author
Moon River and Me

When in the mid-1950s Andy Williams reached a low point in his career, singing in dives to ever-smaller audiences, the young man from Wall Lake, Iowa, had no inkling of the success he would one day achieve. Before being declared a national treasure by President Ronald Reagan, Williams would chart eighteen gold and three platinum albums, headline at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas for more than twenty years, and host an enormously popular weekly television variety show whose Christmas specials still occupy a tender spot in every baby boomer's heart.

Williams knew everybody who was anybody during his seven remarkable decades in show business (including Judy Garland, John Huston, Jack Lemmon, John Lennon, Elton John, Frank Sinatra, Elvis, and Barbra Streisand, among others) and was a close friend of Bobby Kennedy for many years, and he shares memories of them all in 
Moon River and Me. His millions of fans guarantee a huge audience for the autobiography of the plush baritone who- at the age of eighty-one-still draws thousands of fans to his Moon River Theater in Branson, Missouri. 

Andy Williams has been one of the world's best-loved vocalists and entertainers since he began his professional career nearly sevety years ago. Known as the King of Hearts, the Emperor of Easy, and Mr. Moon River, he divides his time between La Quinta, California, and Branson, Missouri.

7/22-James Darren

CRN 1 Live Thursdays 3p-5p PT

James Darren-Actor 

James Darren , a film actor, TV star, singer, and director was born June 8th in Philadelphia.  A chance introduction to the legendary producer/talent executive, Joyce Selznick, led to Darren's signing a seven year contract with Columbia Pictures. During his Columbia years, Darren made 19 films including playing Private Spyros Pappadimos in the big-budget The Guns of Navarone in 1961 and Gidget two years earlier. Darren played rich-kid surfer, Moondoggie, and returned to star in two of the sequels.
In Gidget, Darren sang two songs: the title tune and There's No Such Thing As the Next Best Thing To Love. Almost without intending to, he became a recording star. In the early 60's his hits included Goodbye Cruel World, which became number one in the US, as well as Angel Face, Conscience, and Her Royal Majesty - every one of which made the Top Ten List.
Darren continued to make films and in 1966 starred in The Time Tunnel, his first TV series.  When the show ended, Darren decided to concentrate on his singing. He teamed with comedian Buddy Hackett for what would become a twelve-year partnership touring the country.

In 1983, Darren was offered the role of Jim Corrigan on the ABC-TV series T.J. Hooker. He directed the final episode of T.J. Hooker  which led to multiple TV directing jobs including Hunter, Nowhere Man, The A-Team, Hardball, and Police Story.

Darren has been rediscovered by a whole new generation of fans due to his appearances in the seventh and final season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as Vic Fontaine, a holographic swinging 60's Vegas lounge singer. He is currently touring the country, once-again singing to adoring fans.

Kathryn Crosby-My Life with Bing

Bing Crosby is remembered by Kathryn Crosby in My Life with Bing, under the Musical Director Edward Sayegh at the piano.

In addition to numerous hit songs and stories, the show includes a multi-media presentation with film clips that follow the lives of Kathryn and Bing from their Las Vegas wedding as well as footage of Bing and Bob Hope on the golf course, and home movies of Bing welcoming his first daughter Mary. The show contains a celebration of Holiday music, which will of course include Bing's most famous hit "White Christmas".

Crosby, who is the widow of Bing Crosby, began her acting career at age three in Toymaker's Dream. Ms. Crosby's last appearance on Broadway at the Music Box Theatre in 1996 was in Rodgers and Hammerstein's State Fair co-starring John Davidson, Donna McKechnie and Andrea McArdle. On film she appeared opposite Richard Kiley in The Phenix City Story (1955), Tony Curtis in Mister Cory (1957), Jack Lemmon in Operation Mad Ball (1957), James Stewart in Anatomy of a Murder (1959) and Victor Mature in The Big Circus (1959), among others. She may be best known as the princess-in-distress in the special effects laden epic fantasy The 7th Voyage of Sinbad (1958), Kathryn Crosby was married to Bing Crosby from 1957 until his death in 1977. She appeared on many of her husband's Christmas Specials as well as on her own "Kathryn Crosby Show." She is the author of two books, "Bing and Other Things," and "My Life with Bing," and hosts the annual Crosby Golf Tournament in Winston-Salem, NC.
