Frank's new place is on Sirius

Empty

NEW YORK -- Forty years after collaborating with her father Frank for the No. 1 hit "Something Stupid," Nancy Sinatra will perform a key role on a station launched by Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. largely devoted to the music of Ol' Blue Eyes.

 Sinatra said Wednesday she will host a regular weekly show and make available more than 1,700 songs, radio interviews and live performances by her late father, whose hits included "New York, New York" and "My Way."

 "I want his legacy to continue through this century and into the next," Sinatra said at the launch of the channel, which will use family archives and dedicate more than half its playlist to her father.

 Sirius rival XM Satellite Radio Holdings Inc. has a similar channel, previously called Frank's Place but recently renamed High Standards, which features Sinatra and such contemporaries as Bing Crosby and Ella Fitzgerald.

 Sinatra said she and her brother and sister had spent years contacting studios, combing archives and calling sound technicians to build the library.

 She said the station will have no trouble getting listeners given the stream of supportive messages the family receives from fans, many of them teenagers.
