Bob Barry’s Unearthed Interviews Podcast: Frankie Laine

If you’re a movie buff, you remember “High Noon” starring Gary Cooper. In the film, Tex Ritter sang the theme, but Frankie Laine had the hit record. Frankie also recorded the theme for TV’s “Rawhide.” Frankie Laine was an American singer, songwriter, and actor. His career spanned nearly 75 years. Backstage, following his appearance at Italian Fest, Frankie talked about some of his biggest hits and told me something I was not aware of.
