WEMP-FM, Wisconsin, will present a 24 hour Sinatra salute marathon to mark centennial of birth of FRANK SINATRA. On December 12, the Sinatra birthday.
Station manager Mark Heller is buddies with Hal Blaine, the drummer on Something Stupid and a couple of Frank's 1966-68 works (Summer Wind)....anyhow, he told Nancy Sinatra, that WEMP radio will do a tribute to her father...and she contacted the station. Hal got the entire library for WEMP, from Sinatra Enterprises, on CD...for the 24 hour tribute hosted by Sinatra buff R. Alan Campbell, radio announcer and web blogger.
