The CROONER EPISODE - was Frank Sinatra all that great?
FEATURED SONG: Nicky DeMatteo - "The Lady's In Love With You" (from Blame It On My Youth) https://nickydematteo.bandcamp.com/album/blame-it-on-my-youth
This week I talk about Frank Sinatra. Does he deserve all the praise? What was his best era? How does he rank among vocalists of his ilk? What’s happened to crooning since the 1960s? I also talk about the history of crooning, and break down the five big crooner eras.
Are you a Sinatra fan? If so, do you have a favorite period? If not, why not, and what other crooners do you think are better? Are there any crooners of the last 40-50 years you’re a fan of? Discuss dammit!
