"Welcome back to the Sinatra hours celebrates the duets. I'm Dave player. Frank's longtime manager and a close friend of mine, Tony Open, Asano. Here's a story about Frank singing the songs he adored with the people He loved being Frank actually enjoy doing duets with other artists, especially if it were people that he that he respected and had a relationship with, um A lot of that intellects that he did early on those were he didn't really do that too many that were recorded on vinyl. Um, you know if he did stuff, obviously when he was with Dorsey with the pipe Piper's, which I wouldn't exactly call to let's And that will be used on the contract. Columbia Mitch Miller came up with the sham brained idea of them doing this reporting that he used to display piece The despised with Dagmar called Mama will bark. Um, And then, when he went on to record a capital, he actually went in the studio with someone he really admired and had a great personal relationship with his well was killing Smith. And he did, um, how you fixed for love. With her in the studio and another really great tune called so unloved, um, in the sixties. He recorded a duet with Sam with Sammy Davids, Me and my shadow, where they talked about chillies and all of that stuff, and obviously the stuff that he did with Nancy Jr. Something stupid, but most of the two x that he did. We're not recorded in a studio for audio. It was mostly television shows alone man and his music shows. You know how he would do it with Diane Carroll when he collected with Ella and Antonio Carlos Jobim one shuffle, he actually sang with the fifth dimension, which he actually got a kick out of And the TV specials that he did you know, with Dina. He did a whole medley of tribute to manage sex would be admired a big guy on his life, and he did some stuff with with Elvis when he came out of the Army. Elvis's returns. The television was on Frank Show. He did a couple of specials with being He did some stuff with Judy. And obviously did a ton of stuff with Dean. So on the whole idea of doing a duet album, which to my recollection had never done been done before an entire album. It really intrigued him and some of the most part that bite actually came out of Frank's head. Um, he read Philip Port all the time always stayed on top of what was going on in the business right up to the very minute And so when he would see a lot of these younger artists go on late night talk shows and do interviews and they would ask You know who their influences were? And invariably, eight out of 10 of them would say, Well, you know, early on Sinatra and this is my favorite Sinatra song and blow a cloud Then he thought, you know, wouldn't it be nice? Uh, I'm getting up there in years. I don't know how many recordings I have left. Wouldn't it be nice to maybe I could, um, have those people For still maybe something that they always hoped to be able to do. But when the studio and record a duet with a guy who it's an influence in their career Yes, There were the duets albums in the 19 nineties, but his string of successful duets started decades earlier. Dubbed the first Lady of song elephants. Gerald was the most popular female jazz singer for more than half a century. In her lifetime. She won 13 Grammy awards and sold over 40 million albums. 19 seventies. LS spent the legendary two weeks performing in New York with Frank Sinatra and Count Basie.

"May require by multiple annuities and holding them full term. Welcome back once again to the Sinatra hours. I'm Dave player Frank had a special relationship with Dean Martin for over 40 years while their friendship grew, so did the bonding between their two famous families. While Frank encourage daughter Nancy and son Frank Jr to launch singing careers of their own. Dean Martin was no different. His daughter, Dina Martin, first appeared on the Dean Martin Show in 1966. She was a frequent guest performing in musical and comedy numbers with a wide array of entertainers, including Frank and his family. I asked Nina Martin, how being surrounded by Sinatra and her famous father influenced her in her stage show in Vegas and the world of entertainment. His legacy has, you know, let me let me put it this way of the Apple doesn't fall far from the tree. You know, I am. And that's probably why I was named Deena Dean within a Deena Martin because there's so many things that I I do of my dad's, and it's not something that I've, you know, tried to rehearse or anything like that. It's just there. I say it's in my DNA. And now when I get up on stage, and I'm doing my shows, and I have fabulous musicians, of course, all the time, great arrangements and I do have a sense of humor that my dad had because I remember watching him when I was a very young girl. At the Sands Hotel in the Copa room, and I'd be sitting like in the front row ringside, and the announcer would say. Ladies and gentlemen, the Sands Hotel is proud to present the star of our show direct from the bar Dean Martin and my dad would walk out. He looked so handsome and he would sing and he was funny and you know in the audience should go There he is, And I knew right then that that's what I wanted to do. Well. There are countless duet sung by Frank and Dean. Sammy Khan and Jimmy Van Heusen Road style for the 1964 movie Robin and the seven Hoods starring Frank.

"To the Sinatra hours. I'm Dave Player a window into the world of Frank Sinatra. Is sponsored by Gilkey. Windows chews vinyl or choose Fiberglass. Just be sure to choose guilty in 1955. Jack Daniels wasn't the liquor powerhouse we think of today. Bill Distillery was nearly 100 years old. The Lynchburg company was still a small regional brand, moving nearly 150,000 cases annually of its black labeled Tennessee whiskey. By the end of 1956 however, that figure had doubled. And a shortage was taking root that would delay the export of Jack Daniel's. For almost two decades. The company received an endorsement from one very powerful friend. That friend was Frank Sinatra. Chris Fletcher assisted master distiller for Jack Daniels tells us how Jack Daniel's first brand salesman Angelo Lucas, he made sure that Sinatra was never out of his beloved Jack Daniels. Yeah, That's a great story. When Sinatra fell in love with our whisky you have to remember of the time of Jack Daniels was mostly regional brand. It was not. It was very hard rather to find Jack Daniels in a lot of places across the country. And so Mr Sinatra finds out of the one and only salesmen that we had. Um, Mr Angelo look easy, who was from Memphis, Tennessee. And, of course also, he was an Italian American. And so Frank and Angelo hit it off. You know, I heard Angelo tell the story of the first time that he spoke with Mr Sinatra on the phone. He thought it was a break as I guess. Most people would have, however, it was very, very soon thereafter, he realized that it was actually Frank Sinatra and and he made her that Frank had a case of our classic old number seven whiskey on his plane pretty much at all times. And though the friendship started there, and you know it's It's certainly a relationship. When you think of Frank Sinatra and Jack Daniels. You know, it's a friendship that lasted for decades. In fact, you know Mr Sinatra when he passed away They actually put a bottle of Jack Daniels in his casket with them. So so he truly was a friend of Jack Frank Sinatra loved his whiskey, and so did Elvis Presley. As we look back at Frank's covers the song Love Me Tender was a number one hit for Elvis and was also the name of his film of the same name. Song puts new words to a musical adaptation of the Civil War Song Aurally, published in 18 61. And later became popular with college glee clubs and barbershop quartets. Here's the natural cover of Love Me Tender Love Me Tender Love me sweet.

"Thousand fourteen two thousand twelve Jonathan quick. I think it's good on the Kings because the first game back from a road trip. I don't care what anyone says. It is the toughest and to come back. A lot of teams come back and they lay the first game back right. I mean come back off the road. You're back with your family. Get back swinging things brother. You don't tell me. I played bronze Lebron's level choir. I know so. I thought it was good. That came out the way they did. They scored I which is great to see because it doesn't happen often. I end early. I and early. Yeah ten seconds. I thought it was good. Good team effort tonight. I think the way they scored. I'm also positive about both plays sort of having the same way your your veteran's center right Qatar. Does it first Carter does later. They win the face off. You know it gets to an open. Man Takes the shot and the guy who on the face off scores down in the dirt. Quarter Gordon the dirty areas so the fact that the wingers some of the young guys after or blue open shots again. We talked about at least autumn. But the but you're Carter's in your copay tires on the game to neck running down the list going into this game. Cope Qatar with five goals Brown undoubtedly before harder to fully walker and global chuck with three. Each that's not good enough right like I don't WanNa be that guy who's maybe the pays for fifty one hundred percent and you know you say what you want about especially after the start that they got off to just six to five every game them. Boy Loyd we off the wagon. Yeah so all right player of the game but I think it's important so again no I just think it's important. That the veterans get goals right like cohorts are can't be scoring five goals at the twenty. No that's what they carry the team. They have to carry the team young players to carry the team. They had to up. Gary thanks veterans. That's exactly where you saw the success two years ago and Co Petar was in the MVP race and then last year when he had what twenty goals. Maybe so all right Dave player of the story play. We're GONNA start with play the game play of the game play of the game. I would say the play of the game is the Jeff Carter goal which put the Kings on top and put them on top for good. It was a big goal at the time they made it to to nothing game. Jeff Carter goal in the dirty area. Like you said down near the crease. That's my play of the Game Jack. A second that I'm flirting it while it's anonymous there's really two on goals scored yes. I'm picking it mainly because hope it's hard school while not not that it's getting less work than Jeff Carter's but he's sort sort of tapped in a loose puck goalmouth whereas Carter actually had to take the extra step of this great to see a draw which nothing is significantly special for Carter are you wins draws all the time but going to the finishing. Yeah it's not something we've seen in the last journey. I had the chance earlier. Eddie mass late in the Jesse looked at me and said who is that. Just missed it and I go Carter Order and he goes. Yeah that makes us in good that he has the open his mind. You hit the post. So what are you gonNA. Oh you did okay so I didn't know until like the second period but anyway Good points layer of the game player of the game. I'm torn on this one but I'm going to say that it's the goaltender Jonathan Quick Awesome. Yeah I just think he played too well tonight in an automatic. Yeah absolutely. Yeah and I'm GonNa say this Kyle Clifford. I thought he would have been. He's he's like one eight one. B One BS Liguori in that conversation before I get into my ludicrous statement about Jonathan. Kay how dare that referee. He Give Kyle Clifford a penalty early in the first period when he was shoveling the Minnesota Wild Guy. Hey like it's the kings versus the wild. It's it's GONNA be boring. What are you doing? Yeah but yeah jazz it up something to walk you know. We're watching that down in the box. It was it was at the face off outside outside the Blue Line and all the guys in the boxer like they're going yeah they're going third going Hartman Talking Hartman played them. Yeah they were talking and then cliff. He looked at them and gave them the shove. Now in the game the one extra one and that's when he got it. But how dare you right now. I now dairy Justin saint-pierre now my now my outrage was. APD Alexa talks more about Jonathan. Quake this was a shutout. That goal bounced off that you even pointed it out to me off of. Yeah I think Clinton yeah below in both of his legs when inside shouldn't pet on both both of his legs so there's nothing you can ask a goaltender out. I don't care it's a one goal shutout show. That's how that's right that's right so is the three nothing went. Yeah we'll start as I'm concerned. Okay that works so there you go simple times player of the game Jonathon quick. I think that's going to wrap this one up We will be back. I'll be back on Thursday. I don't know but these guys Yup and listen stay tuned. There will be Ilya Kovalchuk. We'll check news. John John Rosen. I are planning on talking about tomorrow's that'll be available not tomorrow but the next one. You're listening to this. It'll be tomorrow but for for me right now. It'll be two to anyway whatever. Thanks for listening talkies..

"Jon Hansen in for Dave player on this Sunday morning row. Coleman producing this morning. Blake stubs on the phone and the one only Roger bad as you just heard him in the newsroom. All right Blake. We're talking about movies that didn't win an Oscar that we're pretty surprised about, you know, sometimes they go against really great films. And there's this great years where you could really flip a coin of Twitter few choices, and you can't argue against the academy. But Roger brought up and Roger I'm going to have you say the name of the title of the movie that you are upset about because boy slipped down time. Yeah. Just a tad little probe. Chitty Chitty, bang bang. And I think it's because I wrote a musical parody to that in my college comedy room, which I can't change the word Blake was part of that group. And he probably remembers it to Blake steps, you know, what beat Chitty Chitty bang bang. I do. It was Oliver. Carol Reed Oliver. So it was beat by musical. Yeah. Nominate Oliver cleaned house that year with five wins. So I would say, you know, any teaching bang by the way was only nominated ugly for song. Academy. Didn't even really give it the love. Roger clearly because anything with one. Yeah. Yeah. See I was gonna say I I was looking at this. I was like I thought the movie did get a little more recognition from. Yeah. But not so much but Oliver one instead a lot of big fan of Oliver the musical briefly. I'm fine with that. I'm fine with it. It's fine. There's a lot of other great musicals Eileen, sir. May I have more. No more. Okay. Yes. Preferrably? All right. So going through some more of these lists. And I'm looking at this kind of this rancor article where people can kind of vote, and they can move things up and down. And there's a lot of Schalke wants to me. But I think when I mentioned coming out of the break that a plague sometimes a movie doesn't win in your shocked by it years later. But then you see what it was up against? And I I love twelve angry men, and I cannot believe when you say that movie title that that didn't win best picture. But when you find out that came out of the same year as bridge on the River Kwai, you kinda go. Yeah. Okay. I get it. I guess. Yeah. Twelve well twelve angry men, both the film and the play a it's at the absolutely an experience if you can see it live, see if you can watch the film by I it's the film is an outstanding film mainly for its acting. But also the way that it's shot how can make you feel claustrophobic. And yet so glued to to every word that comes out of each actor's mouth. I, you know, I never really watched a film and felt like. I was so in the because it really only has one set it really only has one particular place, and it's so confining and yet at the same time, there's big stakes and and everything that happens in that movie is just so well executed from beginning to end that the Kennedy did show it recognition. I mean, it did nominate three nominations best picture best director and best writing screenplay based on adapted screenplay basically at the time. They had a different classification for bud bridge on the River Kwai, David, right? Who is bridge requires number three on my all time list. It is probably one of my favorite films, watch it. There's something about the scale of that film, the acting in that film. These two films are very different. However at the time, I think the academy chose to go with a film that was more in sort of a blockbuster vein as opposed to what you would call true acting showcase fame. And and that's and that's just I think it's some of the tides of hobby academy votes. I don't think that really has anything to do with the quality of the picture. I think it has to do with at the time and fifty eight that's what they chose. Yeah. Yeah. It it just leads to some interesting. The like how did twelve angry men lose? Well, look what it was. Yeah. You know, maybe shift at the time they were trying to make the cadidate, and you bring up a good point about movies that maybe aren't appreciated in their time. Like, I look at the movie stand by me, which I love, and I think it's just represents with rob Reiner just represents so much about growing up as a as a as a boy and as a young teen. It it holds up to this day. Great young cast. And then I look at it wasn't even nominated for best picture for nineteen eighty-seven awards platoon one, and you can't argue against that. But to not even be nominated. But I guess that's just that's just something that happens. We fall in love with these movies. But sometimes they just they didn't maybe they were a commercial success. Maybe they were a critical success at the time. Obviously, you gotta make tough choices. But I think it's just a matter of sometimes movies become much more appreciated when you give it time to simmer. Like a good soup. The more you let it simmer and sit there and let the flavors really mixed together. They're much more appreciated later than they are at the moment. Absolutely. And you bring up a good point. Because this is kind of where I think the Oscars gets a lot of its criticism at as a as a as an award or as a as a system, you know, how words are given out one of the film's it'd be exact same vein. You're that you're pointing at it. It is citizen. Kane. Yeah. That is exactly what happened with citizen Kane citizen. Kane was not exactly loved by audiences. I didn't do great at the box office. Critical response was good. But it wasn't great. Nobody was blowing it up like like we do now as a society when people get really like shocked at their like, you haven't you love movies. But you haven't seen citizen Kane. I mean, somebody said to me once I was like, oh, of course, they're seen citizen. Kane like are you serious? And here's the thing. She doesn't Kane is an autour masterpiece. It is worse than wells was like, you know, it was so far ahead of its time. I don't think a lot of audience members for critics kind of understood how to how to appreciate that sell now tale right now. Here's the thing. It didn't win best picture was nominated. But it didn't win. Can you? Tell me what it walked CASA Blanca. It was not CASA Blanca bed does know those came out. It was Halloween was my valley directed by John Ford who is one of the Alzheimer academy. Dr John I believe he won. Total, and you know, and was nominated six times, and in how green was my valley is a film that for whatever reason it's like one of those film titles that I've always committed to memory because somebody will say something about how citizen Kane's the best of all time in somebody else. The conversation will be like, well, why didn't win best picture did win best picture and no one can answer. What was the film that one? Now, again, the academy in its time and its moment, we didn't live at the you know, it I believe it was the forty two officers. Yeah. It was nineteen forty two awards when this trophy was given out. And again, you know, how green was my valley to call several trophies that night director picture supporting actor several other things too. And the thing that's interesting note is that citizen. Kane is really the movie that the mass public knows. Need the Oscar to become the titan of quality. I guess the main the cinematic media still is still is your the gold statues. Whatever wants for that night. But I mean, if you were to ask or center you ask anyone else? I imagine they'd rather be the movie that's indelible when you remember forever than the one that wins the the the award. In fact, many of these movies were surprised didn't win the award. And we can't even remember the film that wanted and that that's much more impactful for its legacy. We had a text from the two one four, and this is what we were talking about. With Carl Lee says well saving private Ryan getting beaten by Shakespeare in love that which is a big surprise. And that one that one's gotta be at the top of a lot of people's lists for shockers. It absolutely is. In fact, I remember watching that broadcast. I remember I was young. I was I was still like this is what year was that. Was that ninety nine? Ninety eight ninety nine hundred eighty it was like the late nineties, and I remember I was mad for saving private life. I remember being sick. I had surgery I had to stay home from school for a few weeks. It was really Ross and all I did was watch movies. Maybe that's where the love of film came from but saving private Ryan was like a whole new experience movie watching at the time. I saw it. And I remember sitting watching Oscar's night and being like, oh my gosh. I really hope a win like that that that would be amazing because of everything that that film encompass the execution of the action sequences the cinematography that and that kind of that was one of the movies that opened me up to watching movies differently and paying attention to different elements of what makes a movie great. Now, I'm not saying Shakespeare loves a bad film. I don't think it's a bad cell. I just don't understand how the academy's boats would have gone towards it versus a film like saving private Ryan. I have gone on to read a little bit more about this as a blatant. And I believe that in his time would he was at the top of the industry Harvey Weinstein's greatest crusade was getting Shakespeare in love, it's best picture Oscar. Now, he is a disgrace name Hollywood as he should be. However, if you know like sort of how he ascended and when he was at the height and everything he was doing like when the kademi is a very political machine. This is just something to know. Maybe why it's why some of these fellows one somebody's some didn't. There's a lot of criteria. You have to meet in order to be considered. There's a lot of money spent on ad campaigns. Make sure people vote for you. I think saving private Ryan for whatever reason like the studio Miramax, which is able to get the award for Shakespeare in love bet the farm on Shakespeare in love and they ended up getting the trophy. So there you go. There's a little may maybe dig a little deeper and read about that. But I was found that a will. How did a movie like this a movie like back? Here's a little context. Maybe this is a brief explanation through onto ninety one. Seventy two hundred the movie that you're surprised didn't win an Oscar or the actor or the actress we're gonna get into that a little bit more with Blake subs after this seven twenty WGN..
