Show #69: Songs By Sinatra 1945 Broadcast

Direct Download



Originally Broadcast on the CBS Radio Network in October of 1945, this time we're listening to excerpts from "Songs By Sinatra" - Frank Sinatra's Radio Show, which was sponsored by Old Gold. On that particular Wednesday evening, Sinatra's guests were Soprano Lillian Romandi and the King Cole Trio. The orchestra was conducted by Axel Stordahl, and the Pied Pipers were also on hand. Though the quality of the recording leaves something to be desired (not having been intended to survive past the initial broadcast), these old shows give us insight into the music and culture of one of the most amazing periods of American history.

  • Night and Day (Opening Theme)
  • One More Dream And She's Mine
  • Come To Baby Do (The Pied Pipers)
  • Nancy With The Laughing Face
  • Frim Fram Sauce (Nat King Cole)
  • Lover Come Back To Me (duet with Lillian Romandi)
  • I Found A New Baby (with the King Cole Trio)
  • Put Your Dreams Away (Closing Theme)
