Frank put Hoboken, NJ on the map
The tiny one square mile town of Hoboken New Jersey is best known for its most famous son, none other than Frank Sinatra, born on December 12, 1915. Frank’s music made its way from 78’s to 45’s and 33’s to CD’s and digital downloads. When I was growing up, my father bought our first FM radio so he could listen to “Friday With Frank” every week, probably one of the few radio programs ever devoted to one artist. You’ll hear Frank on New Jersey 101.5 this weekend on “The Jersey Homecoming Weekend”.
The star is on the sidewalk on Monroe Street in Hoboken, marking the site of the Sinatra house, which is no longer standing.
