TONY Martin, the romantic singer who appeared in movie musicals from the 1930s to the 1950s, has died, aged 98.

Martin also sustained a career in records, television and nightclubs from the Depression era into the 21st century.

He died of natural causes on Friday evening at his West Los Angeles home, his friend and accountant Beverly Scott said yesterday.

A peer of Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, Martin sang full voice in a warm baritone that carried special appeal for his female audience. Among his hit recordings were "I Get Ideas," ''To Each His Own," ''Begin the Beguine" and "There's No Tomorrow
