Frank Sinatra: A Voice in Time

Special to focus on Sinatra's early years.

Omaha, Nebraska – A new one-hour radio special focusing on the early years of

Frank Sinatra's career will air Thursday night.

Frank Sinatra: A Voice In Time takes a look at the early years of Frank Sinatra's career.

Nancy Sinatra hosts this one-hour special looking back at Frank Sinatra's early years (1939-1952). During this often-overlooked period of his life, Sinatra first recorded many of the songs that we now regard as the great pop standards. He also transformed from a first-rate vocalist with Tommy Dorsey's big band to one of America's first multimedia superstars.

Music from his Bluebird and Columbia catalogs are featured among comments by Tony Bennett, Rosemary Clooney, historian Chuck Granata, and even some archival clips from "Ol' Blue Eyes," himself.

Frank Sinatra: A Voice In Time will be broadcast Thursday January 3rd at 8:00PM on KIOS.
