The Golden Age of Crooners with Frank King 3:00 PM (in person)

Join Frank King for a musical lecture where you’ll get to hear the standout songs of this Golden Era and also learn some fascinating secrets about the singers and the songs. Mr. King’s lecture will focus on the life and songs of the great Doris Day, plus the surprising stories behind some big hit songs from the year 1951, and other surprises – such as the lost verse to “Over the Rainbow” no one’s ever heard!  Between the Big Band years of the ‘30s and ‘40s and the onslaught of Rock ‘n Roll was a “Golden Age” of beautiful, recorded music. It was a period when the great vocalists – Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Dean Martin, Doris Day, and many more – sang the timeless standards of the American Songbook.

Frank King holds a Master's in Broadcasting from Boston University and a BA from Princeton. His lectures draw from the music and art from his personal collection of over 2500 record albums. He has presented lectures around Greater Boston and Cape Cod since 2014.
