It was a fantastic success.

Frank Sinatra, long acclaimed as the world's greatest performer of popular music, is the artist who set the standard for all others to follow. In "May We Be Frank?" our eight talented performers celebrated Sinatra's love for the classics of the Great American Song Book, as well as his appreciation for the songs, songwriters and styles that came along in the 40 years from 1953 to 1993, when he took charge of his career--inventing the "concept album" and creating some of the greatest recordings of the 20th century.

This musical entertainment was created by Martha Dickman & Stephen Peithman

Stephen Peithman recently completed his 25th and final year as host of "Musical Stages," broadcast on Capital Public Radio's KXPR-FM (90.9). Last month, he began a new KXPR program, "Connections," Saturdays at 8:00 PM, which takes a broader look at music from classical to folk to pop.

Martha and Stephan are assisted by Music Director Jim Croghan
