OLEG FRISH is
probably one of the most famous men in America that you’ve never heard
of. Of the five million Russians living in the United States,
FRISH is one of the best known personalities and is often described as
the MERV GRIFFIN of Russian-American entertainment--a versatile and
well regarded TV and radio host and a singer, too--in multiple
languages. His debut CD in the United States, “BRING ME
SUNSHINE,” will debut August 9th.A passionate and rabid fan of American
music and the Great American songbook in particular, OLEG’s wildly
successful Russian-American Television Show, “TIME OUT,” was
broadcast weekly on the Russian-American Television Network NTV across
the U.S. and featured his celebrated interviews with many American
music and celebrity icons including the late JAMES BROWN, DONNA
SUMMER, WHOOPI GOLDBERG, PAUL ANKA, NEIL SEDAKA, NANCY WILSON, B.B.
KING, CONNIE FRANCIS and many others. At the height of its
popularity, the “Time Out” program reached millions of people in 19
countries across the globe and ranked as the top Russian-language
entertainment show, the “ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT” of Russian TV. In 2010
OLEG took some time off from his TV duties to record his ode to the art
of timeless music, the English-language CD project, “BRING ME
SUNSHINE,” debuting August 9th. In the same studios used by FRANK
SINATRA and NELSON RIDDLE, FRISH teamed with PATRICK WILLIAMS, who was
