This week on Afterglow it’s “Sinatra in Hollywood,” with music from the many movies of Frank Sinatra, including Pal Joey , Anchors Aweigh , High Society , Guys and Dolls , and more, as well as unreleased recordings from The Man With the Golden Arm and an aborted 1954 animated production of Finian’s Rainbow (which features, among other things, a Sinatra-Ella Fitzgerald duet).
