Happy Birthday, Mr. Chairman

On this ninety-fifth anniversary of Frank Sinatra's birth, we'll be joining Sinatra fans around the globe in celebration of an extraordinary life.

In particular, I'll be spending some time listening to Siriusly Sinatra, and perhaps watching one of his many excellent films. I especially can't wait to hear today's edition of Nancy for Frank at 5 o'clock (Eastern) on Sirius.

Thank you, Mr. Chairman, for sharing your art and your soul with us. The world is a better  and more beautiful place because of you.

Christmas with Frank and Dean

Around this time of year I'm sometimes asked to recommend my favorite Christmas albums by Frank Sinatra and others. I'll be getting a podcast episode out with a more thorough review, but here are a few suggestions for starters. These are the records by Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin that you're most likely to find me playing over the coming weeks. Many of them are available as MP3 downloads, as well as CDs.
