NEW YORK, July 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SIRIUS Satellite Radio and the Sinatra family are proud to announce a unique weekly show on Siriusly Sinatra channel 75. The Chairman's Hour is 'hosted' by Frank Sinatra himself using rare material unearthed from the Sinatra family archives.

The Chairman's Hour will premiere on July 7 at 5 pm ET, with a special preview broadcast on July 4 at 5 pm ET, featuring a set of Frank's patriotic songs.
Siriusly Sinatra, which launched earlier this year, is the only 24-hour, seven-day-a-week, commercial-free channel to broadcast the entire spectrum of Sinatra's career as well other artists from the big band, swing and traditional pop genres. Produced by the Sinatra family, the channel also features regular blocks of Sinatra's music, archival performances and is the home of Nancy For Frank, a weekly show hosted by Nancy Sinatra.
Frank Sinatra's career is unmatched in American popular music. A recipient of 13 GRAMMY(R) awards, Sinatra holds the distinction of singing on the first Billboard No. 1 single, "I'll Never Smile Again" (1940), which sold 900,000 copies. From his first released single in 1940, as the singer with Tommy Dorsey's band, to the 1980 release of "Theme From New York, New York," Frank Sinatra had more than 200 hits on Billboard's pop singles chart.
