Bing Crosby and David Bowie’s ‘The Little Drummer Boy’

David Bowie and Bing Crosby released this beautiful song  – The Little Drummer Boy/Peace on Earth at Christmas in 1977. Vernon Corea watched this classic on British Television in 1977 in his home in Harold Road, Upper Norwood in South East London. At the time although still working for Radio Worldwide he had already presented his ‘London Sounds Eastern,’ radio programme on BBC Radio London 206 for over a year.

When Vernon was at Radio Ceylon he had played Bing Crosby’s songs at Christmas in the late 1950s and 1960s.
