Sounds of Sinatra
Listen for “The Sounds of Sinatra” every weekend on Kool-AM. You can hear the show Saturday evenings 8pm-10pm and on Sundays from 12n-2p.
Sid Mark launched “The Sounds of Sinatra” in Philadelphia 52 years ago. It all began as a call from a listener, who suggested that Sid spin one hour of Frank Sinatra.
Some years later Sunday with Sinatra debuted. Sid’s second Sinatra show airs from 8 am – 1 pm every week. Both Philadelphia programs have been ranked #1 in nearly every demographic! Interestingly enough, WPHT is a 50K watt, clear channel talk station and the only music on the station is Frank Sinatra as presented by Sid Mark. WPHT also airs the nationally syndicated Sounds of Sinatra every Saturday night from 7-10PM.
In 1979, Sid took The Sounds of Sinatra to the national level with affiliates in New York and Los Angeles. Soon the show spread across the country to where it is today, airing on nearly 100 stations every week. This is the only radio program of its kind to have been personally authorized by Frank Sinatra.
Sid and Frank developed a personal friendship in 1966. To celebrate the anniversary of the show, Sid was invited to see Frank in Las Vegas. After seeing Frank’s show at The Sands, Sid met Frank and a friendship was formed which would last for decades.
