Show #47: Rest Easy, Sweet Prince

This week we commemorate an extraordinary life on the eighth anniversary of his passing.


Shownotes and Links
(Podcast of May 12th, 2006 - Sirius Broadcast of May 17th)

Please forgive my poor attempt to express my thoughts on this occasion. I hope that at least it will prompt you to spend some time with Frank Sinatra's music and movies over the coming days, and to reflect on his art and his life.

Here's last year's 3:43.

Here's the Wall Street Journal Article on Wee Small Hours mentioned in the show. Some of their sources suck, but an interesting perspective none the less and it reminded me of how much I love that album.

Sirius Tour

Michael Butler of the Rock'n'Roll Geek Show recently did a sound tour of the Sirius Studios in NYC. I thought it might interest you, especially if you listen to our program on the Podshow lineup there.

Also, it's a new month for voting at Podcast Alley. I'd appreciate your support.
