Lots of feedback regarding part one of our visit with Tom Dreesen posted at THE SINATRA SONGBOOK Facebook page.  Most of you found Tom’s stories about being behind the curtain with Frank illuminating.

Whenever you ask Tom how he’s doing, it’s always, “I’m great. I’m busy. I’m playing in a charity golf tournament this weekend. I’m doing my one-man show ‘An Evening of Laughter and Memories of Sinatra’ for insert worthy cause here.”…and so on. A lesson learned from his time with Frank?  My guess his natural inclinations were reinforced by Sinatra’s life-long commitment to charitable work.

We often hear the term, “…just too much material for one show.”  That’s certainly the case with this interview.  So, Mr. Dreesen returns this weekend, Saturday, July 25 at 6pm ET and Sunday, July 26 at 8am ET exclusively on Metromedia Radio.

A few years ago, Sands Hotel Pit Boss, Ed Walters and yours truly, joined forces at a four-day Sinatra Festival in Los Angeles.  We collaborated for a seminar focusing on the Rat Pack years. We shared wonderful stories of Ed’s time with Frank, Dean and Sammy.  From the epic Basie-Sands engagement, to the Rat Pack free-for-alls on the legendary Copa Room stage, Ed was front row center for the entire experience.  Those in attendance loved the LA seminar.  We certainly had a great time.  Now, we want to bring the seminar to you – LIVE!
