Sunday 26 June 2011

Our Guests of Honor:

Ed Walters

Former Casino Boss Of The Sands Hotel In Las Vegas

Dennis Shafer, Musician & Composer: SOUND PAINTING

Frank Sinatra And The Rat Pack In Las Vegas

And Stories Of Other Entertainers In Las Vegas (Including Marilyn Monroe)

*(The Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr, Joey Bishop, Peter Lawford)

Former Casino boss Ed Walters originally answered emails about Frank Sinatra on The Frank Sinatra Mailing List (known as the Temple list). These stories were called The Pit Boss Replies, because they were in direct response to questions someone from The Temple List would ask Ed. Many found it fascinating to hear first-hand how Sinatra and his friends really behaved at The Sands. New The Pit Boss Replies stories appear to this day on The Temple List and on The Voice Mailing List (an invitation-only group).

Author Tom Rendour asked Ed if he could share these stories with cyber fans via his Songs By Sinatra website: Ed agreed, and now they are there for everyone to enjoy.
The bulk of these Stories From Vegas are as they appeared originally on The Sinatra Mailing List

Stories you have never heard before that will give you a better understanding of what made Sinatra tick

This Sunday, once again, fun and nostalgia.- Patricia

.NOTE: ( The Rat Pack is the nickname given to a group of popular entertainers most active between the mid-1950s and mid-1960s. Its most famous line-up featured Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Jr., Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop, who appeared together in films and on stage in the early-1960s.[1] Despite its reputation as a masculine group, the Rat Pack did have female participants, including movie icons Shirley MacLaine, Lauren Bacall, Angie Dickinson, Marilyn Monroe, and Judy Garland. -
