Looking All The Way Back
The centennial of Frank Sinatra's birth rolled around last month (December 12th), & a new book looks all the way back over that long, long, road, & finds that they were very good years indeed. The hardback book is David Lehman's "Sinatra's Century; One Hundred Notes On The Man And His World" from Harper, an imprint of HarperCollins & the book is up for grabs this afternoon (Monday) at 4:35 on Puffman Musical Trivia! Sinatra left an enduring legacy that is still treasured by legions of fans today. Acclaimed poet & critic David Lehman serves up a fresh & surprising new take in this warmly celebratory collection of 100 short reflections on the man, his music, & his larger-than-life-story. "They're" are in here...his affairs with Lauren Bacall & Marilyn Monroe & even his marriages to "mace mouth" Ava Gardner & Mia Farrow. Dean & Sammy show up too. Be the 1st caller in with the correct answer to my Puffman Musical Trivia question & WIN this spectacular Sinatra book. Speaking of music...I'm going to have a trivia question pertaining to the 1st record I ever played on the radio...way back in the early 60's. See you later today for some more musical trivia stuff with Puff.
