Frank Sinatra on Early Television







While the video had degraded, the sound in these clips are surprisingly okay (given the medium).  I am still trying to find Frank Sinatra singing Johnny Mercer's Ac-cent-tchu-ate the Positive (which Frank's version was probably part of that Bob Hope special in 1950).

Pundette: Making WhoppieThe Best Is Yet To Come (with the Count of Red Bank, NJ, who also does a fabulous April in Paris)
Bob Belvedere: Numbers 28 through 26 , When I Take Sugar To Tea, Saturday Night Is The Loneliest Night of the Week (tie), Please Don't Talk About Me When I Am Gone, and Have You Met Miss Jones? and Honorable Mentions 5
Mark Steyn: I Have DreamedWe'll Be Together Again and Mark looking for something "French Enough" for Bastile Day and (Ah, the Apple Tree) When the World Was Young (Steyn's Franco Sinatra Post)

Don’t forget to also keep checking out
Pundette’s Sinatra 100 countdown,
Ms Evi’s Sinatra Celebration,
Dispatches from the Camp of the Saints Sinatra, &
Mark Steyn’s Sinatra Songs Of The Century.
It’s a swingin’ world.

  1. Frank's show was only 15 minutes long (they thought that was the max of people's attention span).
