This Saturday, December 12, 2015, will mark 100 years since the birth of Frank Sinatra. And SiriusXM is celebrating all weekend by opening the airwaves of a few select channels so that anyone with a SiriusXM radio can join the party–including special shows hosted by Nancy Sinatra, Tina Sinatra and Frank Sinatra Jr., as well as Sinatra concerts and more!
The special programming will feature a new special hosted by Nancy Sinatra, with selections from the new boxed set of rare Frank Sinatra radio performances, including some of Nancy’s personal favorites; shows hosted by Frank Sinatra Jr and Tina Sinatra; broadcasts of The Chairman’s Hour, the Siriusly Sinatra series ‘hosted’ by Frank Sinatra himself using archival material; and episodes of Playing Favorites, the SiriusXM radio show featuring Tom Brokaw, Tony Bennett, Angie Dickinson, Steve Wynn, Linda Ronstadt and many others hosting their favorite Sinatra music.
Additionally, the weekend long celebration will include a live broadcast from Patsy’s Italian Restaurant in New York City hosted by Steve Tyrell, where Siriusly Sinatra will be hosting a national toast to Frank at 3 pm ET/Noon PT as our guests raise a glass to The Chairman Of The Board. There will also be broadcasts of Sinatra’s television specials including The Man and His Music and other shows with special guests including Diahann Carroll, Dean Martin, Natalie Cole, Tony Bennett and Ella Fitzgerald; Sinatra concerts from the ’50s through the ’80s recorded in London, New York, the Dominican Republic, St. Louis and Tokyo.
The special programming will also feature exclusive comments from performers at the Sinatra 100 Concert in Las Vegas, including Lady Gaga, Adam Levine, Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, John Legend, Katherine McPhee, LL Cool J, Nick Jonas, Quincy Jones, Trisha Yearwood and Usher.
The celebration airs around the clock Friday 12/11 through Sunday 12/13, via satellite on SiriusXM’s Siriusly Sinatra (Ch. 71) and through the SiriusXM App on smartphones and other connected devices, as well as online at siriusxm.com.
