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.

Other featured interviews include Sammy Davis Jr., Big Band leader Tommy Dorsey and composer Paul Anka.
