Episode 131: Rocky Fortune and the Football Fix
This time around on The Frank Truth Sinatra Podcast, we've got another edition of Frank Sinatra's 1950s crime drama Rocky Fortune. From an NBC Radio Network broadcast of February 2nd, 1954, it's "The Football Fix."
We've also got some songs from Steve D'Agostino's new album A Chapter From The Great American Songbook.
The first episode of The Frank Truth was released on February 19th of 2005. In those early days, I didn't have the sense to number the shows, and I didn't start publishing here on the weblog until several weeks later.
In any case, although most of the episodes are available as links from the website archives in the lower right sidebar, I've had numerous requests for a single page of some sort that lists all of the shows in chronological order. So here's a start. I'll be adding to the page as time allows, and once it's complete, I'll do my best to keep it that way, updating this page with the release of each new episode. I hope it will be a handy reference for listeners, new and old alike.
Please do keep in mind that a lot of these older shows are pretty rough - both from the standpoint of production and of knowledge. I hope at least you'll be able to hear that the spirit of the show was there from the very beginning, namely, a sincere appreciation for the artistry and character of Frank Sinatra.
What follows are links to both the MP3 files for download, and the shownotes for each episode. I'll try to add show numbers and other contextual information as time allows.
