Hey pallies, likes today, September the 16th is likes one of the hugest of the huge Dino-dates in all of Dino-history 'cause likes on this date back in the year 1965 our great man's great TV Show made it's debut on the peacock channel...and likes, as they say, the rest is history. The world changed that fateful Thursday night when our most beloved Dino took over the airwaves and make 'em his own...and the world has never ever been the same again.
For an amazin' hour each Thursday night at 10 p.m. our King of Cool reigned supreme for nine-count 'em-nine glorious years...an hour full of singin', laughin' and most importantly lovin' by our beloved Dino! The Dean Martin TV Show was..still is...and always will be... such a breath of fresh air 'cause it was likes so so refreshin' to find our great man...totally totally unrehearsed simply havin' a ball entertainin' in his own words, "de common folk."
Am sharin' a few classic pixs from the Dino-show with all you pallies, and one of my most fav of fav Dino-moments....that stunnin'ly stellar medley of tunes crooned by our Dino and the Sam man! Likes I coulda watch this clip forever 'cause it is our Dino and Sammy lovin' on each other and lovin' on entertainin' the masses with their magic!
Gunty-Renker and recently Time-Life have each put out their own collections of bits of the Dino-show, but all of us that name the name of our Dino continue to cry out...."Just Give Us Dino....The Whole Dino...And Nothin' But Dino"....meanin' of course, we won't stop until we gets full episodes and full seasons of the greatest TV Show ever. So, on this 46th anniversary of the beginnin' of the Dean Martin TV Show, we continue to wait with baited breath for the day that all of us pallies dream of, the day when we''ll give the original un-cut, un-edited Dino-show!
Keeps lovin' our Dino pallies! Dino-forever and ever, DMP
