Tony Bennett will be honored by San Francisco in a city hall ceremony on Valentine's Day.

The 85-year-old first sang "I left my heart in San Francisco" in December 1961 at the Fairmont Hotel's Venetian room. He'll return there later that night for a sold-out benefit concert to raise money for heart research at UCSF. Every radio station in the city has been asked to play Bennett's song at or near noon.
