An interview with jazz and film critic Gary Giddins about his latest nonfiction work will have you humming Christmas tunes.

Swinging on a Star: The War Years 1940-1946 is his second volume about entertainer Bing Crosby; this one focuses on a period when his fame was at its peak — and when he recorded what's still the bestselling single of all time, White Christmas

Giddins describes why Crosby struck such a chord with Americans on All Things Considered.

You can listen below or read the piece on NPR’s website.
