Bob Pasch Biography

While stationed in Korea, Bob listened to the Armed Forces Radio Network.  This is where he first became interested in Bing Crosby and was first told that he sounded like the great master.

Bob began his Bing Crosby Tribute in 1978, one year after Bing’s death. He also became an avid collector and today has a world-class collection which contains hundreds of unique items as well as many personal items presented to him by Crosby Family members. Through his collection he studied Bing Crosby's career, his mannerisms, and his approach to a song becoming an expert on Bing’s life and career which is incorporated in his show presentation.
