    Anything Dean Martin. My granny loved him and I must confess as I get older I really appreciate these old guys who are no longer here. What a great time it was back then.

    Here's Frank threading up a Christmas music tape on his Presto deck.

    If you could only hear one Christmas song this year, what would it and who would be the artist? ...
    Note: This is a different "ask" than the thread title ("Favorite Christmas Song/Artist")

    Only one?

    A really, really hard choice -- but, if really only one.



    sorry.

    I guess I just assumed everyone would want to listen to their favorite rendition of their favorite song. Guess I was mistaken.

    Lots of good songs here regardless.

    And, studio ready to play back the three-track tapes. :)
    Gotta love the Fisher tuner and Mac preamp in that built-in system, too.
    There are myriad great photos of Frank and his hifi(s) at home(s).

    I wonder what those three chassis are underneath the Fisher tuner, amplifiers probably. The speakers look custom made.

    Nancy Sinatra auctioned off some of her dad’s stuff recently, and I believe some of that gear was among the items sold...

    I would speculate the large drawer with the center pull knob, above those three chassis, there might be a turntable?

    Yeah, me, too.
    I thought some kind of signal processing, but... I dunno. :)

    First of all, sorry to derail the original theme of this thread. Sometimes one subject inspires a branching interest. It seems the three units under the tuner are power supplies for the three Presto tape electronics. Placing as far away from the other components was a good idea and there seems to be ventilation openings below.

    I see your posts as a friendly amendment, @KennethSwauger (not that I am the OP).
    Maybe Ava or whichever wife was present at the time got them for Ol' Blue Eyes for Christmas; who knows? ;)
    And, although none of his are my favorite-est of all, Frank did some marvelous treatments of both sacred & secular Christmas songs on (at least) Christmas Dreaming and A Jolly Christmas [from...].
