“Nothing But the Best” from Frank Sinatra

Photo:

The soundtrack to much of American life during the mid-twentieth century was sung by one unique performer. He was a star of stage and screen, and his legacy reaches to today, and, it seems, far into the future as well.

Artworks’ Annie Corrigan talked to the creator of WFIU’s “Afterglow,” Dick Bishop, and got his take on the life and music of Frank Sinatra.
