To the Editor:
Celebrating legendary singer/actor/entertainer Frank Sinatra’s 102nd birthday. He was born on December 12, 1915 and I hope his legions of fans will join me in this yearly celebration, including Tony Bennett, singer actress Jane Powell, Peggy King and the All Star Jazz Trio, music archivist Anthony DiFlorio III, Global Productions talent promoter Billy Jon Coogan, music historian Jonathan Schwartz, DJ Ronnie Allen, music director/bassist George Roumanis WYYR program director Chris Valenti and entertainment columnist/author Will Friedwald. One sad note, the passing of big band vocalist Harry Prime (he sang with the Tommy Dorsey and Ralph Flanagan orchestras) earlier this year at age 97. Prime was an ardent fan of Frank Sinatra and Bob Eberle, vocalist with the famous Jimmy Dorsey band. So here we are once again to say Happy Birthday to Frank Sinatra, whose recordings, films and music remain timeless. As they say in Italian: salute!
