December 14 - Russian Radio and TV Personality/Singer - Oleg Frish


Oleg Frish is probably one of the most famous men in America that you’ve never heard of.  Of the five million Russians living in the United States, Frish is one of the best known personalities and is often described as the Merv Griffin of Russian-American entertainment--a versatile and well regarded TV and radio host and a singer, too--in multiple languages.


A passionate and rabid fan of American music and the Great American songbook in particular, Oleg’s wildly successful Russian-American Television Show, “Time Out,”  was broadcast weekly on the Russian-American Television Network NTV across the U.S. and featured his celebrated interviews with many American music and celebrity icons including the late James Brown,  Donna Summer, Whoopi Goldberg, Paul Anka, Neil Sedaka, Nancy Wilson, B.B. King, Connie Francis and many others. 


In the same studios used by Frank Sinatra and Nelson Riddle, Frish teamed with multi-Grammy Award winner, and Academy Award nominated composer Patrick Williams, to produce his debut CD titled, "Bring Me Sunshine."
