  VAV!/November 18, 2014/Contributed by Dennis Nyhagen Guy Lombardo and his brothers were arguably the most successful big band of The Golden Age of Radio. Along with his Royal Canadians, Lombardo built a band music franchise that had become a multi-million dollar enterprise by the World War II years. For almost half a century, Guy Lombardo's performances of Auld Lang Syne had become an American tradition in bringing in New Years Eve across the country. Indeed, well after his passing in 1977, Lombardo's rendition of Auld Lang Syne is the first song played during every Times Square celebration of New Years Eve.
