Wink Martindale Hosts a Very Special Look at Frank Sinatra

Luck will be a lady to Frank Sinatra fans this Saturday and Sunday night in the form of a special one-hour Internet radio program. “Sinatra & Friends: Remembering an American Legend” is set to be piped out at 6 p.m. PT March 9 and 8 p.m. March 10 on Sunland, CA-based CRN Digital Talk Radio.

The best part is that the show is hosted by Wink Martindale, not just an instantly recognizable name from the TV world but also someone who got to interview Ole’ Blue Eyes a number of times:

“We went through our archives of interviews with Frank and those who worked with him and were close to him to get a unique retrospective on the man and the legend that was Frank Sinatra,” said Martindale. Other featured interviews include Sammy Davis Jr., Big Band leader Tommy Dorsey and composer Paul Anka.

Explains Anka during the program: “I finished “My Way” in an hour and a half. There are lines in there that I wouldn’t have written for anybody else. And the following week I was working in Vegas as was Frank… and they went in and recorded it and they played it over the phone and I cried.”

Martindale, a regular CRN contributor, plans future similar specials about Johnny Mathis, Neil Diamond and the tandem of Steve Lawrence and Eydie Gorme. Fantastic!
