100 Years Of Old Blue Eyes


You still have time to buy a cake, but Frank Sinatra's 100th birthday is approaching (December 12th). 

Old Blue Eyes left a major impression on the music of the 20th century, to put it mildly. 

The 100 years since his birth are observed in David Lehman's book Sinatra's Century, 100 short essays on the singer and his impact. 

David Lehman joins us to explain the project and hear some of Sinatra's music.
