'Bing was in the men's room.  So I go in the men's room, and I'm right next to him,  and Bing says to me, `Can the kid sing?' That was his question.

'I said, `I'm afraid so.'

Bing Crosby is clearly a favorite topic. Working with Crosby on radio, Paul backed such legends as Bob Hope, Jimmy Durante, W.C. Fields, the Andrews Sisters and Frank Sinatra. He remember being there the first time Crosby and Sinatra met. He recalls Crosby was wary before the show.
