Listen
AIR DATE: September 21, 2010

One of the most influential periods in American Music occurred during the 40's and 50's. It was the infusion of Italian culture and styles introduced by Sinatra, Bennett and Martin.

A new book AMORE: The Story of Italian American Song tells how the Italian influence began at the start of the turn of the 20th century with stars like Enrico Carusso but reached a new stratosphere with Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Tony Bennett.
