RANCHO MIRAGE, Calif., Aug. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Crooner Radio, an online "Crooners Only" radio station will be debuting the nationally acclaimed show, "The Sounds of Sinatra" with Sid Mark on Sunday, August 7th at 12pm PT/3pm ET. Morgan Manning, owner and operator of Crooner Radio said, "I am so excited to be able to offer this show to our listeners. I used to listen to it when I was a young boy, and never dreamed I would be able to offer it on my station."
In 1979, Sid took The Sounds of Sinatra to the national level with affiliates in New York and Los Angeles. Soon the show spread across the country to where it is today, airing on nearly 100 stations every week. This is the only radio program of its kind to have been personally authorized by Frank Sinatra. Now celebrating its 60th anniversary, The Sounds of Sinatra has ranked #1 in nearly every demographic.
Sid and Frank developed a personal friendship in 1966. To celebrate the anniversary of the show, Sid was invited to see Frank in Las Vegas. After seeing Frank's show at The Sands, Sid met Frank and a friendship was formed which would last for decades.
Mr. Manning started Crooner Radio 7 years ago, and wanted to create a station that played only Crooners. Broadcast from Rancho Mirage, CA., Crooner Radio also offers exciting shows such as the popular, "Swingin' Saturdays," and Fridays, "Crooners and Cocktails." A singer himself, Morgan was encouraged by Sinatra to sing after hearing a cassette tape, given to him at a party in Rancho Mirage, CA., and told him that he should continue singing and would even attend his first show. Morgan has attended an astonishing 36 Frank Sinatra concerts, and has had the great opportunity of knowing and becoming close friends with many of the "Greats," and even has some of the classic crooners doing liners on his station.
The station continues to grow in popularity and has been listed as an "Editors Pick" on Windows Media. "If you want to listen to the greatest crooners in hi-fi, then Crooner Radio is your station," says Manning. The station has listeners worldwide in over 113 countries. Many people stream the station throughout their home and businesses through wireless and Bluetooth devices.
