"With Bing's music and Regis as host of 'Bing Crosby Christmas Radio,' you have another Christmas present under your tree," Scott Greenstein, President and Chief Content Officer, SiriusXM. "We love bringing this channel to our listeners every holiday season—especially this year with the added gift of rare material from the personal vault of Bing himself."

"Bing Crosby Christmas Radio" features Crosby with special guests including: Rosemary Clooney, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, Orson Welles, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, The Andrews Sisters, Johnny Mercer, Ethel Barrymore, Edgar Bergen and his daughter, a young Candice Bergen.

The channel features Crosby's most popular recording ever, "White Christmas," as well as numerous Christmastime radio specials he hosted over the years, including: "Christmas Sing with Bing," "The Bing Crosby Show," "Philco Radio Time" and "Kraft Music Hall." Listeners will also be treated to "The Bob Hope Radio Show" from Christmas Day 1950 featuring Crosby as Bob's special guest, as well as a rare recording of Crosby reciting the classic poem "The Night Before Christmas."

Crosby was a major radio star from 1931 to 1962. He appeared on approximately 4,000 radio broadcasts, nearly 3,400 of them his own programs.
