    Good Job, Leigh Ann!

    Phil Ramone is at the very top of music producers! When the first "Duets" came out, I sent him a congratulatory letter. He sent me a very nice thank-you note. There had been some talk about a possible book on the production of the "Duets" albums, working w Frank, working w those great singers, the technology -- the whole "shmear," as we say in Italian. I hope the book is still in Phil's schedule. He's a special artist!

    A major FS 'fanatic' -- but he's quiet about it! "Empty Is" and "Love's Been Good To Me" are special compositions, and Frank's recordings are wondrous!

    A terrific "Playing Favorites!"

    I agree Stan. gives alot of air time to the ladies mentioned in your post. I've grown to appreciate alot of artists by way of listening to Mr. Schwartz on the weekends.
    Do you think I'll remember how you looked when you smiled,
    Only forever, that's putting it mild

    Great Intro, Leigh Ann!

    I met Dennis at the Hofstra "Celebration" and he was such a nice, down-to-earth guy! At one of the presentations, he sang a version of "In The Wee Small Hours," that just destroyed us!

  18. #958
    Enjoyed listening to Dennis and Lorraine. They told some interesting stories and played great songs from Frank.

    I only know of Dennis from hearing him on Sirius and now I know he is married to Lorraine, who has a great speaking voice as well as being a beauty!

    Loved hearing them speak of Teddy Randazzo also...

    This is a great show and is replaying now. Tune in if you can, or on Saturday at 3:00 ET.

    I love how Dennis talks about the "twinkle in Frank's eyes" when Frank sings.
