The Frank Sinatra Show (1950-52)

Saturday night show sponsored by The Bulova Watch Company. Frank used the cast from his Paramount Theater shows. The musical conductor was Axel Stordahl.

Typical show: Frank opens with “When Your Smiling.”…June Hutton (Mrs.Stordahl) comes out and she and Frank sing “My Romance.”..Ken Roberts does a Bulova commercial. Buy a watch for Mom on Mother’s Day.

Comedy sketch with Frank, Eileen Barton, Dagmar, Joe Bushkin, Tim Hobart and Don Saxon……Joe Bushkin plays “I Love A Piano” and Eileen sings “A Tree In Brooklyn.”….Tim does a horrible, unwatchable so called comedy bit.

Frank sings “Hello Young Lovers”…….Eileen comes out and sings “What Do You Think I Am?” and Frank does “Oh Look At You Now.”…..Here comes Dagmar. After some quick comedy she sings “Ballin’ The Jack.”…..Tim and Don do a song and dance routine that’s just dumb……Frank closes the show with “If.”

Eileen Barton had a huge hit in 1950 with “If I Knew You Were Comin” I’d Have Baked A Cake.”

I'm a big fan of vintage books,movies,TV shows and music. I encourage everyone to patronize your local used book/record store and pick up some of the good stuff. My posts are capsule reviews of some favorites that you may want to investigate. The albums posted aren't really reviews but items from my collection that are still available. I try and point out highlights of each one and let the music speak for itself. Thanks to all for checking out the blog.
