On the Other Hand: Radio Necrology


This story, on the other hand, gives me the creeps: From Sirius Satellite Radio comes the announcement that Frank Sinatra will “host” his own radio show:

“The Chairman’s Hour” is ‘hosted’ by Frank Sinatra himself using rare material culled from the Sinatra family archives. The show, spanning decades, is reflective of his body of work, emotional composition, and respect for those who he collaborated with personally and professionally.

Guess that some producers will be logging some serious studio hours to create Siriusly Sinatra. Do you suppose the Chairman will be doing his own liners and promos too? In fact, I’ll bet that conversation has already taken place…
