NICE JOB, EVERYONE!
Our first Seldom-Heard Sinatra hour is in the can, thanks to you. Great selections too! How nice it was to visit the relatively rare ones among the approximately 1,400 recorded titles that are Frank’s recorded legacy.
If you were to create categories on a sheet of paper, labeling those categories RCA, Columbia, Capitol and Reprise, which rare favorites would you place in each… and why? Your answers could make for an interesting follow-up to our first collaboration. Comments are welcome here and at the SONGBOOK Facebook page. And speaking of Facebook…

It’s fair to say that Tommy Dorsey ran the most successful band of that era. Sinatra called him “The General Motors of the Band Business”.
Frank famously credited his trombone mentor’s phrasing and breath control as the great influence on his singing style. “Reprising” one of my favorite hours, we’ll focus on TD’s approach to a song and its impact on this singer when we open Chapter Two of THE SINATRA SONGBOOK, Saturday, August 31 at 6pm Eastern and Sunday, September 1 at 8am Eastern, exclusively on Metromedia Radio – metromediaradio.net.
