Tony Martin at 97

Mr. Martin is such a gracious man!

We always make sure our celebrity guests are comfortable no matter what. Tony and Cyd were scheduled ten years earlier but couldn't make it. Yet, Mr. Tony Martin still agreed to do this and he didn't have to. It's rather short and he had a very long day as he says. He also sings a bit! We are so happy and proud to have him... and emails from all over the world said the same thing. God bless Tony Martin!

Below is a photo I took of Tony Martin at Feinsteins in Manhattan just three years ago. He was magnificent! His wife the great Cyd Charisse was in the audience! Here we are!

It was a star studded extravaganza as Manhattan's who's who came out to see Tony. Of course I couldn't take photos with everyone. But also in the attendance that night was the wonderful Robert Osborne from Turner Classic Movies. What a treat to see him there as My TV is on TCM 24/7! Plus the great American MGM movie actress Arlene Dahl. And also bandleader from Late Night With David Letterman Paul Shaffer.

A magical Tony Martin evening for all of us.
