Sinatra ~ This American Life ~ Deconstructing the Chairman of the Board

from WBEZ in Chicago

Sinatra ~ This American Life

Of particular interest during this one hour show are the segments featuring Michael Ventura reading an excerpt from his novel The Death of Frank Sinatra (7.5 mins to 20 mins) and Gay Talese reading from his sublime Frank Sinatra Has a Cold, recently voted the best story Esquire ever published (38.5 mins to 48.5 mins).

The following link from WBEZ provides detailed info on the broadcast plus an audio link to an insightful interview with Michael Ventura, which didn't make the final cut.
