Next Monday’s Morning Magazine with Happy Jack (June 11) will feature a special tribute to Nat King Cole – a mild mannered man who started performing as a jazz pianist and soon became massively successful as a singer. He was ultimately ranked with contemporaries such as Frank Sinatra, Perry Como and Dean Martin.
He possessed a distinctively “husky” baritone voice – well suited to the love ballads of the 50′s and 60′s – which propelled him to spectacular fame as a vocalist.
However, his life was not without controversy.
Tune in after the 10 o’clock news and weather next Monday and enjoy some of the fabulous music performed by the great Nat King Cole and hear the story of his life and times.
