Hey pallies, likes just in time for our grand and glorious golden celebration of our most beloved Dino's entry into the world of the small screen, our pallies at google Dino-lerts sent us a message that the followin' vid clip had just gone up at youtube. It's the openin' minutes of the NBC network's first installment of the Dean Martin Variety Hour. Likes, of course, it begins with the peacock struttin' it's stuff, but likes dudes that ain't nothin' compared to our most beloved Dino struttin' his wares.
Before the lights go up, we hear our Dino croonin' the openin' bars of his signature song "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime" and then suavely states, "Thank You. Now there's, there's no point in singin' the whole song. You might not buy the record." This short sample also includes his swingin'ly swank statement of intent: "Now I want you to know that this is goin' to be a family show. The kind of a show a man can take his wife and kids, his father and mother and sit around a bar and watch."
Our King of Cool is in fantastic form on this first outin' and set's the tone for the next nine year's ahead. Likes, as we all know, the small screen woulda never be the same 'gain once our Dino entered the medium with his ever cool, hip, and randy self! So, likes sit's back and enjoy this marvelously memorable moment in the life, times, and teachin's of our one, our only Dino! Dino-psyched, DMP
