In case you haven’t heard yet, December 12, 2015 would have been the 100th birthday of New Jersey’s own Frank Sinatra (1915-1998), who was born and raised in Hoboken…which I frequented back in the day..on this date in 1915. If you’re too young to remember, he was only one of the biggest entertainers of my generation.
Starring in some of the greatest movies of all time, his velvety-smooth voice was prevalent in classics like “Anchors Aweigh” and his eponymous series, “The Frank Sinatra Show”. But, it is also due to the fact that, if you didn’t know his name if you lived in the state (like I have), you didn’t belong there.
Also celebrating with the Jerseyan are/were; former “The Price is Right” host Bob Barker (1923), late New York mayor Ed Koch (1924-2013), late newscasting legend Bill Beutel (1930-2006), entertainer Connie Francis (1938), musical goddess Dionne Warwick (1940) and actor Wings Hauser was born in 1947.
Former gymnast/actress Cathy Rigby (1952), musical icon Sheila E. (1957), hardcore wrestling icons (1964) and Ultimo Dragon (1966), young musical scion Hank Williams III (1972) and “The Big Bang Theory” co-star Mayim Bialik turns 40 today.
Thank you for coming and please read and share…need to surpass last year’s views…
