Celebrating Sinatra at 101

To the Editor:

My annual salute celebrating Frank Sinatra’s birthday, December 12, continues. His legions of fans include Peggy King and the All-Star Jazz Trio, big band singer, Harry Prime talent promoter/musician Billy Jon Coogan, Chris Valenti, program director of WYYR, music archivist Anthony DiFlorio III, actress Jane Powell, singer Tony Bennett, author Will Friedwald, and DJ Ronnie Allen, among many other luminaries of the entertainment industry. Happy Birthday Francis Albert Sinatra (101). Here’s hoping our education system sees its way clear to adding “Sinatra 101” to its curriculum. That would be a fitting tribute to the man who gave so much to enriching our culture and way of life.
