For The Love Of Frank

February 2024
1min read

I’d like to thank David Lehman for his wonderfully written article “Frankophilia” (November/December 2002). Man, you got it! I’m just a punk kid, but reading your essay shone some light on a dreary day. A friend gave me this magazine and said, “Look, it’s Sinatra.” I spent the next hour reading and rereading it until I had it memorized. It’s comforting to know there are others who listen to his music as I do. I love that line “I jump out of bed in the morning singing ‘It All Depends on You’ and your voice comes out of my mouth.” That’s me, right there.

We hope you enjoy our work.
