CBS RADIO News-Talk WPHT-A/PHILADELPHIA is holding a sold-out event TONIGHT (12/12) to celebrate the 58th anniversary of SID MARK's broadcasting career. MARK, host of the FRANK SINATRA shows "FRIDAY WITH FRANK," "SUNDAY WITH SINATRA," "SATURDAY WITH SINATRA," and the syndicated "THE SOUNDS OF SINATRA" over the last 57 years, will be honored with a special live broadcast from the event at PARX CASINO's 360 LOUNGE in BENSALEM, with guest FRANK SINATRA JR. TODAY would have been FRANK SINATRA's 99th birthday.
SVP/Market Manager MARC RAYFIELD said, “WPHT is proud to pay tribute to a living legend. SID MARK has entertained generations of listeners through the years and it’s wonderful to be able to honor the legacy of FRANK SINATRA and celebrate SID’s amazing career at the same time.”
MARK said, “I am thrilled to celebrate a live broadcast of a FRIDAY WITH FRANK from PARX CASINO on what would have been FRANK SINATRA's 99th birthday. My good and loyal friend of 50 years, FRANK SINATRA JR. will be my special guest. And who knows who else might show up.”
SINATRA Jr. added, "I could have been anywhere for my father's 99th birthday but I chose to spend it with SID on his 58th anniversary."
The original "FRIDAY WITH FRANK" show launched in 1957 on the old WHAT-F/PHILADELPHIA (later WWDB, now WRDW).
