AllMusic Review by

These 17 tracks were all recorded during the late '40s on Bing Crosby's Philco radio show, and the duets featured are among the rarer ones in Crosby's discography of radio material. Included are versions of "Clementine" with Dinah Shore and Burl Ives, "When It's Night Time in Little Italy" with Groucho Marx, "There's a Flaw in My Flue" with Ethel Merman, and a host of other interesting items with celebrities from Peggy Lee and Jimmy Durante to Louis Armstrong, Jack Teagarden, Al Jolson, and Kay Starr. The sound quality is good, but not up to the standards of GNP Crescendo's excellent Radio Years series.
