 Sinatraspeak
Frank Sinatra the man who invented “cool”
Ol Blues Eyes was way ahead of his time; in fact the older generation was taken aback by his own vocabulary of “hip” words and expressions that at the time were part his own select group of celebrities, entertainers and Hollywood stars who became known as “The Rat Pack”

Words such as chick, broad, endsville, charlies, dig, ring-a-ding and tomato are just a handful (or mouthful) of “Sinatraspeak” – words that became part of the Sinatra image.

For a listing of Sinatra words and expressions along with their meanings click on "Sinatraspeak".

The Jazz Man recommends “The Sounds of Sinatra” featuring the incredible music career of Frank Sinatra.

This 30 minute program is on Golden Days Radio 95.7FM (Mondays 7.30pm) and features recordings of Ol Blue Eyes from 1939 to 1994. Featured are rare non-commercially released recordings, studio “out-takes” “live” performances and the stories behind them.
