Bill Cartwright has prepared a great show for swing lovers this week...Saturday night at 10pm on May 16th.  The show begins with Gregg Field's version of the classic "Satin Doll", "Let Yourself Go" by Stacey Kent and the ever popular Dean Martin with "On the Street Where You Live."

Other vocalists in the first half of the Swing show include Frank Sinatra, Helen Forrest and Maxine Sullivan.  After the mid-show break, you'll hear Bobby Darin, Rosemary Clooney and Glen Gray.  The show ends with Benny Goodman's "Stealin' Apples."

There's going to be a Dean Martin Festival in his hometown of Steubenville, Ohio on June 18-20th, 2015.  If you go, you'll be treated to a line up of stars from Elvis's son to the best Dean Martin impersonators from Branson, Missouri to Las Vegas, Nevada.  There's also a meatball-eating contest and the Pittsburgh Rat Pack show.
