Yes, that is Spock in the headphones. The year was 1979. These are some of my LPs, themed compilations, and the like.

The Voice of Bing in the 1930's

In this 1957 LP, Der Bingle shows himself to be a crooning tenor who's not quite the Schmaltz King who became known to the Baby Boomers.

Here're the selections:

01 - Where the Blue of the Night Meets the Gold of the Day
02 - I Found a Million Dollar Baby (in a Five and Ten Cent Store)
03 - At Your Command
04 - Now That You're Gone
05 - Dancing in the Dark
06 - Too Late
07 - Sweet and Lovely
08 - A Faded Summer Love
09 - Just One More Chance
10 - I'm Through With Love
11 - Out of Nowhere
12 - Good Night Sweetheart

Also included are the rear liner notes.

Somewhat of note is the last song.  "Goodnight, Sweetheart" is a 1931 number recorded many times, appearing in several films, including 1942's The Palm Beach Story (sung by Rudy Vallee) and 1943's Stage Door Canteen.  It's also the song heard playing on the radio in Star Trek's "City on the Edge of Forever," as Kirk and Keeler pitch a little woo.

See you on Monday!
