Who can be romantically linked to Guy Lombardo...and how closely?

(e.g. Guy Lombardo)

(e.g. Kevin Bacon)

 

Best known for his almost half-century of live New Year`s Eve broadcasts (1929 - 1976) on radio and, later, TV, intitially from the Roosevelt Hotel and, later, the Waldorf-Astoria.

 

Adopted his theme, "Auld Lang Syne", not because of its New Year`s Eve association, but in deference to his first national sponsor, Robert Burns Cigars. Burns is thought to have written at least the verse of "Auld Lang Syne."

 

On his place in the American pop culture: "It`s very simple. Music happened, bands happened, and we happened."

 

Many a man wishes he were strong enough to tear a telephone book in half-especially if he has a teenage daughter.
