Monday Music Special, September 1st: "You Must Remember This"
This month on You Must Remember This, 7:30-8:30pm: through songs and interviews with the young Frank Sinatra, host Allen Secher reminds us of the phenomenon of the 1930s and 1940s known as Sinatramania. "Would you believe that in 1940, Frank Sinatra was as big as the Beatles or Elvis in their time, or any rock star you can name today?" Or as the New York Herald Tribune put it: "It is a slightly disturbing spectacle to witness the almost synchronized screams that come from the audience as he closes his eyes, or moves his body slightly sideways."
You Must Remember This is hosted by Allen Secher and airs the first Monday of each month as a Monday Music Special, 7:30 - 8:30pm.
