Sinatra's heyday

It's your call

December 12, 1990

Frank Sinatra's incomparable singing career has spanned six decades, yet most would agree that his most productive and artistically significant decades were the '40s, '50s and '60s.

We would like to know your view on which decade yielded Sinatra's best music.

Was it the '40s, when he crooned for the bobby soxers and lonely War Years radio listeners with songs such as "I'll Never Smile Again" and "Nancy With the Laughing Face"?

Was it his resurgent '50s, the Capitol years, when he established himself with "saloon singer" and "swinger" songs like "One for my Baby" and "You Make Me Feel So Young"?

Or was it the '60s, recording on Reprise, when he sang "Fly Me to the Moon" and the melancholy "September of my Years"?

To register your opinion, call SUNDIAL, the Baltimore Sun's free directory of telephone information services at 783-1800 (or 268-7736 in Anne Arundel County) today until midnight.

After you hear the greeting, you'll be asked to punch in a four-digit code on your touch-tone phone. Punch 4600 and you'll be connected with "It's Your Call," The Evening Sun's survey on topical issues.

"It's Your Call" represents a sampling of opinions from certain segments of the community, but it is not balanced demographically as would be done in a scientific public opinion poll.

Look for results in Thursday Accent Plus Evening Sun.
