1977: Bing Crosby's last Christmas special, "Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas," airs more than a month after his death. The show was recorded in September, and Crosby died that October. The show is best remembered for Crosby's duet with David Bowie, where they sang a modified version of "Little Drummer Boy," with Bowie singing new "Peace On Earth" lyrics composed by the show's writers.
