Hey pallies, likes we here at ilovedinomartin loves the many and oh oh so varied ways that our Dino is homaged on the web, includin' each year at the time of the anniversary of his departure from our immediate presence. Today we takes you to the blog of Radio Station Classic KRXB Country 1000, Sioux Falls, South Dakota where radio show host Mr. Mark Tassler has scribed a touchin' tribute to our most beloved Dino tagged, "He Died On Christmas Day."
We here at ilovedinomartin truly truly appreciate not only the depth of Mr. Tassler understandin' of our Dino, but also his remarkable way of puttin' pen to paper in renderin' his tender tribute to our great great man. We were particularly struck by how Mark ties our Dino's passin' to the wintery season when he so profoundly posts, "Of all the artists, Dean Martin was the master of holiday songs. Today his music is heard everywhere at Christmas time still." Thus remindin' all us devotees of Dino that it seems just right that our King of Cool would depart us at the peak of the season where his music still rules supremely supreme!
ilovedinomartin salutes Mr. Mark Tassler and all the pallies at KRXB for honorin' our Dino in this purely devotional way. To checks this out in it's original format, simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-gram. In The Name Of Dino, DMP
He Died On Christmas Day
By Mark Tassler
Enjoying all the wonderful songs of Christmas at this time of the year is always a treat. Many of them instantly bring back many memories for us.
It’s the original classics that really do it. You hear those voices of the singers from years ago and realize how great they really were.
Of all the artists, Dean Martin was the master of holiday songs. Today his music is heard everywhere at Christmas time still.
Dean singing ‘Let It Snow’, ‘Baby It’s Cold Outside’, ‘Rudolf The Red Nosed Reindeer’ and many others makes the season official. It wouldn’t be Christmas without it.
Dean’s music is so alive and always will be. It almost makes him seem alive today.
But he’s not. Dean Martin died on Christmas Day 1995.
