Chrimble Song of the Day: “The Christmas Waltz” by Frank Sinatra

Sinatra

Today would have been the 99th birthday of the son of Italian immigrants who grew up in one of the poorest neighborhoods in Hoboken, N.J. — and became an not only an international icon, but one of the most influential figures in the history of the entertainment business. Isn’t that what Natalina “Dolly” Garaventa and Antonino Martino Sinatra would have wanted for their only child, little Francis Albert? Is this a great country or what? >>> http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/2014/12/hoboken_fans_celebrate_frank_sinatras_99th_birthday_in_song.html

Those of you SiriusXM subscribers who caught the Sinatra bug long ago, or might like to, should tune in to Siriusly Sinatra (Channel 71) from noon until 3 p.m. today for a musical salute from Patsy’s (a favored Sinatra haunt), in the Big Apple.
