frank sinatra

(his new stamp was released yesterday)

i woke this morning to the melodious voice of ichabod (and the waking crew) on KMPS ... he played a song that i sort of recognized (you can listen to it here). the contest was to see if the listeners could recognize who was singing with frank sinatra - in commemoration of his passing 10 years ago today.

i have been a fan of his christmas music since i was little, i love guys and dolls and yet i had no idea that the year i graduated he was receiving the Legend Award at the Grammy's.

so in tribute i created this playlist. gotta love Frank! enjoy!

This is how you get out of a funk!! I love Frank!! Music is healing to your heart and soul. I hope you feel better soon. You should send your kids over here for a play date and then you can turn the music up and do whatever your heart desires! Thursday morning sound good?
