About Sinatra: The Man and the Music
Every week, host Guy Steele regales HPR listeners with the life and times of one of the 20th century's greatest entertainers -- Frank Sinatra. The program features the singer’s recorded and live performances, as well as his lesser known radio and television appearances. Unlike any other known radio show dedicated to Sinatra, Steele includes excerpts from interviews with Sinatra himself, as well as commentary.
Sinatra: The Man and the Music is produced in Honolulu by Hawaii Public Radio and can be heard regularly on Sundays from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. (HST). The show first went on the air in October 1998, 5 months after Sinatra’s passing.
