Sinatra Confidant 'Tony O' Writes Of His Buddy

 New Biography about Frank Sinatra
New Biography about Frank Sinatra

When Frank Sinatra drew his last breath, "Tony O" was there, holding his hand. That's how close the singing star was to Tony Oppedisano, himself a singer and musician and music producer.

Tony O ultimately helped manage Sinatra's career, lived at his houses, and had many conversations with the legendary celebrity; often far into the night.

He adds to the huge body of works written about Sinatra with Sinatra and Me: In the Wee Small Hours.

We welcome Tony O to the Jefferson Exchange to share just a few of his many, many stories.
