Old Friend Frankie Ford Passes!

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...


An old friend of mine died this week. He was a New Orleans dynamo. Rock and roll and rhythm and blues singer Frankie Ford, whose 1959 hit Sea Cruise brought him international fame, is passed at the age of 76. I’ve heard Frankie sing on any number of times, and his Big Hit, Sea Cruise is still one of my all time favorites. Frankie was always in my corner during a number of my political campaigns. I’ll sure miss his singing and his friendship. Take a listen to Sea Cruse below.
