Satiric radio commentary for the 90s from the man who drained Lake Michigan and filled it with hot chocolate!!!

So Long, Frank

Stan Freberg here. We recently lost the greatest entertainer in the world. Frank Sinatra was in my life, one way or another, all my professional career. [:60 SPOT BREAK]

Freberg here. My friend Frank Sinatra and I both recorded for Capitol, and when he did his own TV show on ABC, I guested on it a few times, which is how I met my wife Donna. She was the assistant to the director of "The Frank Sinatra Show."

I also appeared with Frank on two tours in Australia, playing to 140,000 people a day. And later, while creating an ad campaign for one of his movies, I mentioned that I was doing a TV special, and Frank offered to play the small part of a Western Union boy.

I told him we were shooting in two weeks, and he promised to be there. I thought, "Yeah, he'll probably forget," but on the appointed day, the whole crew looked up.

There in the doorway stood Frank Sinatra, raincoat over his shoulder. He'd come straight from the airport. A man of his word.

Thanks for everything you gave us, Frank.

With love, Stan Freberg here.
