Official Statement about the Re-Investigation of Bob Crane's Murder (11/23/16)
"We—my coauthors and I, members of Bob Crane's family, his friends, and his colleagues—are always hopeful that one day, the true identity of Bob's murderer will be known and justice can be served. However, this recent investigation did not reveal any groundbreaking information or provide a resolution, and the subsequent media coverage did nothing more than bring unnecessary heartache to many who knew, loved, and cared about Bob. We do not discuss or endorse any speculative theories as to who may have committed the crime. We encourage those who want to know more about Bob Crane to discover his complete and true life story in Bob Crane: The Definitive Biography. All author profits are being donated to various charities in Bob's memory."

Bob Crane - Master of the Remix / Paula Prentiss KNX Guest

On December 11, 1964, Paula Prentiss was a celebrity guest on The Bob Crane Show over KNX in Los Angeles. By that time, Ms. Prentiss had established herself as a successful comedic actress, starring in such films as Where the Boys Are, Bachelor in Paradise, and The Horizontal Lieutenant. In 1965, she starred in What's New Pussycat.

During Paula's interview, Bob played the theme song to The Horizontal Lieutenant...and as you know by now, he doesn't just simply play the record. Take a listen, as Bob chitchats the whole way through and then adds his own soundtrack to the film's score.
