You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by; but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by. ~James Matthew Barrie
After the cork is popped, wine poured, life’s last vino drop slides gullets way, we relish in the palisades of it's warm afterglow. Golden afterglows, embraced like loved ones in a dream, memories.
Stories. The cork, the cork has a story. As does the vino, the glass, and the bottle too! Oh if bottles could talk. Them's stories for another day, Pally.
Vintage 1917, hell of a vine to drop this grape, baby. Earthy, body full, hint of amore, leaves the pallet cool. This bottle 'o Dino been popped and celebrated.
Bottle dry, glass empty. Basking in Dino afterglow we are, baby.
This edition of Ed's Epistle is heavy on the golden afterglow of our Dino. Deep into the treasure chest of memories lies a lone VHS tape simply scribed, "Martin on Geraldo". There was no way of foretelling this historic moment that which seemed to have been lost to history without mention. Never have I heard mention of this Dino-moment, little lone a search, or request for it.
From time to time I would view the tape, at first not thinking much of its uniqueness. As time stretched out, it began to dawn on me that the Geraldo show may have been special. So I took a glance at the bible of Dino, A Complete Guide to the "Total Entertainer" and sure enough it was his last TV interview.
How strange, how rare, how historic. I thought by now in this day and internet age this clip would have surfaced. But is hasn't until now, only on our blog.
So this glorious Dino-casion of Dino-casions, we wish you a Happy Dino-Amore Day, and present to you
Dino's last television interview.
Geraldo Rivera, November 25, 1994. Dino on the horn, sharp, witty, cool. Enjoy.
