One Minute To Midnight
Like many stars of the day, Frank Sinatra hosted a weekly radio show almost continuously 40s and early 50s. From 1945 to 1947, the show was Songs By Sinatra, sponsored by Old Gold cigarettes. The half hour program aired every Wednesday night on CBS, and featured Sinatra along with a special guest singing songs and doing an occasional comedy sketch. For the last of this year's holiday themed posts, we go back to the December 26, 1945 show. Frank and his guests that week, the Bob Mitchell Boys Choir, put their own spin on this song from my favorite holiday movie, Irving Berlin's classic Holiday Inn.
