Two years ago, everybody I knew, including yours truly, recognized Robert Davi for his work on the big screen. Some may know that an early acting break came when Frank singled Robert out for a role in the 1977 TV movie, Contract on Cherry Street.
What’s amazing is the speed with which Robert has established a career singing the music of Sinatra and Tin Pan Alley. Indeed, Davi’s passion for singing has been matched by the enthusiastic response of his audience.
Great talent is crucial to artistic success. But it isn’t everything. There is that certain something more that an audience, often by sheer whim, latches on to and embraces. Clearly the public – YOU – love Robert Davi! For this, he is most certainly grateful. And more. Davi remains passionate about the music of Sinatra. According to Robert, that passion developed while he was still in utero.
For the first of our two hours together, RD speaks with great enthusiasm about the American Songbook and Frank’s songbook.
We’ll share Robert’s favorite, seldom-played Sinatra titles, selections from Davi Sings Sinatra and Robert will explain why so many singers from the “golden age of song” were and are Italian!
Music, laughter and great conversation when we open Chapter Twenty-Six of THE SINATRA SONGBOOK, Saturday, March 22 at 6pm ET and Sunday, March 23 at 8am ET exclusively on Metromedia Radio (metromediaradio.net).

REMEMBERING THE COPA ROOM
Ground Zero. For decades, the epicenter of entertainment in Las Vegas. The Copa Room of the famed Sands Hotel.
Imagine the history and the talent that graced that showroom. The Junior League of Las Vegas is staging a series inspired by that legendary venue. The series will feature four programs beginning on April 5 through October 25. Each program will highlight a different aspect of the showroom’s glamour, music, celebrity and impact. Here’s an information link to this series, staged by The Ferraro Group.
