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's 'Cavalcade of Turkeys' — Thanksgiving Day, 1972 (KMPC)

On November 23, 1972, Bob Crane hosted a special Thanksgiving Day program over KMPC Radio in Los Angeles. During his show, he played segments of a few celebrity interviews from his day s at KNX, including those of Mary Tyler Moore, Carol Lawrence, Hugo Montenegro, and Jerry Lewis. Here is the full recording of that special, split into two parts. The Condition of the tape had unfortunately deteriorated over time, but the slight imperfections in the sound quality do not take away from the joy of being able to hear this broadcast from Thanksgiving 1972!

Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving!

Note: This recording was a part of Bob Crane's personal collection of his radio shows and is courtesy of his son, Scott Crane.
