Next up on the Detention Club: Growing Old

Just when he was about to turn 50, Sintra released a concept album featuring songs about growing old. The album was September of My Years. The album won two Grammys: Album of the Year and for the song, "It Was a Very Good Year."

Six years later, Sinatra announced his retirement at a concert in Los Angeles.

On the next episode of the FS Detention Club, we will listen to tracks from September of My Years and the complete 1971 retirement concert.

Premieres Sunday, December 9 at 1pm Central.

The Beginning of the Frank Sinatra Detention Club

I started the FS Detention Club back in 1991, when I first started teaching. Back before the internet, stories went "viral" when they made the papers and hit the wire. So, a story appeared first in the Chicago Sun-Times. And this is the picture that accompanied the article. Boy, do I look young:


Then it made the front page of USA Today. I got my 15 minutes of fame. Lol.

And this is what the FS Detention Club is all about. Join us every Saturday for the best of Frank Sinatra.
