The Paul Leslie Hour Episode #28 – Tony Oppedisano

Tony Oppedisano’s background and passion is in music. One of Frank Sinatra’s close friends and his road manager, Oppedisano could play the guitar, bass and piano as well as sing. This foundation is one of the reasons Tony bonded with one of the greatest singers in the world, Frank Sinatra. His friendship and professional experience with Sinatra segued into his work managing the comic legend (and Sinatra friend) Don Rickles.

Frank Sinatra was born on December 12, 1915 in Hoboken, New Jersey. Join us as we celebrate the 102nd birthday of the greatest American singer, here on The Paul Leslie Hour.
