Sinatra live at Noon, everyday!

Hello all….

Starting today on “The Lounge Sound, we are to play everyday at noon(12PM EST) 30 minutes of Frank Sinatra singing from a Live concert event! “Sinatra Live at Noon” The live events are from 1957 up to 1980.

These will be songs from all of his recordings of live events, and there are many! Most times when Frank sings at live events, like The Sands Hotel in Vegas, Madison Square garden and in Paris, he tends to mash up his songs into melodies, or changes around the tune and or words when singing live, and sometimes even confuses the band members with a quick switch of tempo, it should be interesting! So tune in at noon(EST) and give a listen!


*** Update on USA Licensing for The Lounge Sound

royalties-illustration-word-wearing-crown-r-letters-metallic-gold-tone-46144938

Hello all…. After some researching, my current yearly license I purchase(from SOCAN) is officially for listeners on Canadian soil only. For our listeners in the USA I need to purchase another license! I am taking steps towards purchasing a license at my own expense as my station is non profit or a hobby station. I will update you as I move forward to purchase the appropriate license. Thanks for all your patients!

We moved!

retro_postcard_vintage_couple_announce_weve_moved-r6c6bfbe469b54acc97020b9b5e0488d3_vgbaq_8byvr_512

So we switched over to new server last last week, all seems good on my side. However some listeners still connect to old server. It’s only listeners that use Windows Media Player or Winamp, not sure why. You can tell which server you are on, by simply disconnecting and reconnecting, each time you connect to the new server you will hear a welcome message. if you do not you are on old server. I will be cutting off this old server within the next 24 hours. If you have any doubt, please either message us here on Facebook or to requests@theloungesound.ca THANKS!


Problem Finding The Lounge Sound on iTunes?

iTunes

Hello all, I have had quite a few listeners tell me that they cannot find The Lounge Sound on iTunes any more. We are still there, however for some reason we are under “Golden Oldies” and then alphabetically we are not under “T” for The Lounge Sound, but rather under “L” I hope this helps a few people!?

Notice to listeners…

Hello all… I would just like to inform all our listeners that another popular Lounge music station is very upset that we are using the slogan “The Lounge Sound”. I will not mention this other station/website as we here at The Lounge Sound are beyond all the bickering that has taken place since last Friday.

TheLoungeSound.ca is a completely legal non profit website, that plays non stop lounge music with no commercials and does not sell or advertise anything at all. This other station has no exclusive rights in the USA or Canada to their website name or the slogan. we here at The Lounge Sound intend to keep using this name.

I would however like to ask that our listeners refrain from posting or writing any remarks on their website or their Facebook Page, as this is not The Lounge Sound way of doing things. Thanks to all our loyal listeners!

New Crooner – Francis Dey

We are pleased to have added Francis’s 2 new singles to our playlist Charade and Hello Young Lovers.

This experienced, high-energy entertainer, Francis Dey, brings back the golden days when Sinatra, Davis, Darin and Martin
would bring an audience to its feet with no more than an inflection of their voice. Add in a touch of Michael Jackson’s dance
moves, and you’ll realize why Francis Dey is a “must see entertainer.”

As a young boy, Francis Dey jumped at every chance to perform, eager to develop his talents. Francis would perform at school
dances, weddings… anywhere there was a mic. If you were to ask him about some of those rewarding performances, he
would tell you that weddings were at the top of the list.
Francis got his break when he was selected for the cast of “Up With People.” Soon after, with diploma in hand, it was time to
hit the music scene full time. Francis put together a combo and, armed with his years of training, went out on the road. His
second break came along when he was asked to perform with the Glenn Miller Big Band. Francis loved the Big Band sound,
and soon began setting his sights on Vegas. It was because of his hard work, and another big break, that Francis’s dream of
becoming a Las Vegas showman came true.

Francis signed a recording and management contract under Buck Ram and Jean Bennett, the owners and founders of the hit
recording group The Platters (“Only You,” “Twilight Time,” “Smoke gets in your Eyes”.) After an intense internship under the
strict rule of Buck Ram, Francis was ready for the stage in Las Vegas.
Not long after his debut at the Aladdin Hotel, Francis released his first album, “Welcome to Vegas,” to great success. Francis’
was soon billed as the headliner in the showroom of the Four Queens Hotel. From there, Francis Dey’s performances were
seen in many of the legendary showrooms of Vegas.

After years of international touring and twenty years of headlining in Vegas, Francis was looking for a new opportunity. When
he was asked to produce and headline a new show in Orlando, Florida, Francis moved south. The opportunity rekindled his
spirit. The new show opened at The Plaza Show Theater in downtown Orlando to great reviews. Francis found his new home
of Orlando to be a great place to perform, and the people to be warm and appreciative of his music.
If you have the chance to be in his audience you will see why Francis Dey is a “must see showman.” Francis was made for
show business and would trade nothing for it. He says, “To get paid to do something you are truly passionate about… it’s a
great thing!”
