For those of you who may not realize it, 'The Chairman of the Board' would have been 96 years old today. What???? You don't know who i'm talking about????? Well maybe you're too young, or didn't grow up in the shadow of Manhattan listening to WNEW-AM. That is where DJ Martin Block crowned Francis Albert Sinatra the Chairman of the Board.
Born on December 15, 1915 to Martin and 'Dolly' Sinatra in Hoboken New Jersey, he decided on a career in singing after hearing Bing Crosby. Frank went on to become one of the best known entertainers of the century. In Las Vegas the Sands Hotel announced his presence with just one word on the marquee, "FRANK".
His recordings still represent some of the best of the "Great American Song Book".
HAPPY BIRTHDAY FRANK!!!!! We miss you.....
