Seasonal Sinatra

It's been a pleasure to have been broadcasting another year's worth of Todd's Turntable.

I do hope you've been enjoying the various themes, and music included in the playlists. After this week's program, there's one more edition in 2015 which is the final of the Sinatra 100 series with songs Ol' Blue Eyes made famous but sung by a host of other great singers.

Till then, I wish you a happy time over the holidays.
