Next week, Billy speaks in great detail about his contributions to Sinatra’s Ellington collaboration, the Trilogy project and more.
Join us for Chapter Nineteen of The Sinatra Songbook, part two of our visit with this significant contributor to the Sinatra legacy, Billy May, Saturday, June 22 at 6pm EST and Sunday, June 23 at 8am EST, exclusively on Metromedia Radio.
Robin Douglas-Home (Grosset & Dunlap – U.S. Publisher)
In 1962, while at the peak of his fame and influence, Sinatra granted British journalist Robin Douglas-Home unprecedented access. The author spent two month’s at Frank’s side. You are in the studio, on stage and out of the spotlight with the public and private Sinatra. Totally “up-close and personal.” You will experience this legend as it was being molded.
To your right, the tattered cover of my worn, treasured copy. SINATRA is out of print, but find it! ABSOLUTELY worth the hunt! (Hint. It’s available through Amazon).
ONE LAST CHANCE
We are excited and proud to present Nelson Riddle: in His Own Words.
For added perspective, the documentary is book-ended with producer, Stephen Paley’s recollections of the project and its participants.
First broadcast in 1985, Nelson Riddle: in His Own Words has been out of circulation for nearly thirty years! The final broadcast – June 21 at 8:00pm, Eastern. Thereafter, this extraordinary special really does disappear, back into the vault.
Do not miss our birthday month tribute to the American Popular Songbook’s greatest arranger.
It’s Father’s Day!
Chelsea, my youngest daughter, knows me too well.
Happy Father’s Day? How ’bout
HAPPY FATHER’S WEEK!
