Seems we missed this news item last Thursday...


Odd that the passing of Bobby Vee was all over the network news outlets, yet I saw nothing about Kay Starr.

Here's an update on the ever dwindling list of big band vocalists. (Corrections appreciated)

Before Kay Starr we already lost Gloria DeHaven and Kitty Kallen earlier this year.

Kay Starr (1922-2016) - (Joe Venuti, Bob Crosby, Glenn Miller, Wingy Manone, Charlie Barnet)
Gloria DeHaven (1925-2016) - (Jan Savitt, Bob Crosby, Guy Lombardo)
Kitty Kallen (1921-2016) - (Jan Savitt, Artie Shaw, Jack Teagarden, Jimmy Dorsey, Harry James)

Still with us at last report:
Doris Day – (Barney Rapp, Jimmy James, Bob Crosby, Les Brown)
Kaye Ballard - (Spike Jones)
Ed Ames - (Russ Morgan)
Bea Wain (Artie Shaw, Larry Clinton)
Vera Lynn (Jay Wilbur, Joe Loss, Charlie Kunz, Bert Ambrose)
Helen Clare (Billy Thorburn, Harry Leader)
