Chuck Granata is acknowledged as one of the world’s foremost authorities on the music and career of Frank Sinatra. He is a 30-year veteran of the music industry and has served as a record and radio producer, author, music historian and archivist.

His award-winning book Sessions with Sinatra: Frank Sinatra and the Art of Recording is considered one of the finest books written on the subject, and has for years been used in the curriculum at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Granata has contributed to, annotated, supervised and produced dozens of CD and LP reissue projects at RCA Victor, Columbia, Capitol/EMI, Warner-Reprise and IMPEX Records. For fifteen years he was the producer of Nancy Sinatra’s weekly Nancy for Frank program on Sirius-XM radio.

Through his extensive radio, television and documentary film appearances Granata has enriched the understanding of and appreciation for Sinatra’s musical craft. He has lectured and appeared as a guest panelist at The Paley Center for Media (NYC), the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts (Lincoln Center), The Smithsonian Institution, Skidmore College, and Hofstra, New York and George Washington Universities.

Granata counts singer Nancy Sinatra, record producer Phil Ramone, composer-arranger Johnny Mandel, musician/vocalist/preservationist Michael Feinstein, jazz guitarist Al DiMeola, engineer and producer Tony Bongiovi, entertainer Tony Orlando and The Doris Day Animal Foundation among his cherished collaborators.

Chuck is thrilled to join KSDS-FM as the host of "Sinatra Standard Time" that airs every Sunday at 2PM Pacific.
