 Now THIS is Spring, pallies! 

Man o' man! 

The rain is gone & nothin' but BEA U TI FUL blue skies & warm, gentle breezes...just breezin' 'round! These are the days I live for, mi amici. 

Even the very air I'm breathin' today silently SCREAMS Spring! Haha!! "Silently screams?" Is that even possible, pallies? Ha! Well...that's how it feels to me, anyway. 

All a day like this be the soft, silky croon of our man amongst men, Dino! 

Now, my friends...I know I don't need to tell youse this...but...when you mix warm, Springtime weather...with Dean's easy-listenin', swoonin' type croon...youse just can't help but gettin' that feelin' that L.O.V.E is in the air. 

After all, pals...Spring IS the season of amore! Agree? doubt. 

This is the time of year when all new & wonderful thins' start to happen, my friends. Start to bloom. Flowers...trees...and yes, even romance! Haha!! 

Well...get out there! Get out there & LIVE, pals! It's GLORIOUS! Haha!!  

OK...'nough from me. Let's get to this week's Serenade! 

Picked us a cool cool & ROMANTICO Dino-jam. 

Haven't heard this one in a lonnnng time, pals. 

I think it's gonna get all my fellow Dino-philes floatin' on air & put some stars in your eyes. Dino just has that affect on us. 

Found this one on a 1973 vinyl 45. Released on Reprise. "Amor Mio". 

Can't waits' to get this one spinnin', pallies! Let it play over & over...& inhale every note!

Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "I Wish You Love"

 Welcome back, mi Dino-lovin' amici! So very happy youse stopped by. 

Well, pals...looks like April is windin' down & a new Springtime month is headin' our way! 

Each new day seems to be gettin' more & more BEA U TI FU! Truly a blessin' from above, my friends. 

Let's get some Dino-tunes flowin' & make the most of this SWEET & COOL COOL time of year! 

"I wish you bluebirds in the Spring, to give your heart a song to sing." Man...that says it ALL, my friends. Dino wishing us somethin' as peaceful as that REALLY says a lot to me. It's one of the simplest thoughts in the world. Calmin'...happy...tranquil even! Haha!! But, man o's great! 

It tells us that the smallest thins' in this world can be the BIGGEST treasures! 

I've said it before & I'll say it 'gain & 'gain! The BESTEST thins' in life don't come from a fancy store or a sparklin' showroom. They come from our heart & soul, my friends. 

Some of the GREATEST joys in my life & MOSTEST specialist moments have been quiet & calm. No fantastico over-the-top celebration...just a sunny day with a special friend or a relaxin' night with some Dino & vino! 

That's the good stuff, pallies. Embrace it all. 

So as we welcome in a new WON DER FUL month...let's keep those "easy, breezy days" in mind. Their what REALLY matter, mi amici. 

"I Wish You Love" is EXACTLY the way I want to slide into May! Dean's voice floatin' in on a warm Spring breeze...laid back & chillin'.'s the good life, pals.

Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "The Last Time I Saw Paris"

 Welcome, mi amici! 

So So glad youse stopped by...on this rainy little Spring mornin'. 

Hope everyone is in good spirits & TOTALLY absorbin' this TRULY magical combination of April & Dino croons! Such a great time of year, pals! The Easter vibe continues! 

Hey, pallies...just 'cause the that big bunny packed up his colored eggs, & split town...that don't mean the "Eastery" scene is over! No No No! This is the TRUE beginnin' of "New Years" to this fella, & I plans on keepin' it rollin' right up to we is singin' in the Summery sunshine! Ha! 

Well, pallies o' mine...just as I expected...I'm bein' lured back to Dean's COOL COOL al b um of Parisian song..."French Style". Yes, my friends...I thinks I'll hang 'round this vinyl work of art, just a little bit longer. These drizzly days & this record just seem to pull me in. They set the Springtime stage. One compliments the other, I think. 

So, my fellow Dino-holics...who better than our main dude, make a cloudy day shine...& how better than with a little "The Last Time I Saw Paris"?! 

This is EXACTLY the serenadin' we need to REALLY keep the vibe of this AWESOME season rollin', my friends! 

Now the only wee, little, tiny, miniscule, problemo...was I couldn't choose which Dino-vid to play! Yes, pals...I was havin' a Dino-dilemma. 

My first choice is ALWAYS a live...from Dean's show...chillin' on his couch, croon. These are my personal faves. 

But,'s a short version. Only 'bout a minute. 

Now...I ob vi ous ly want to share as much Dino-croonin' as possible. So do I go with the full studio-recorded jam...or with the very suave but short live vid?! 

Well, ladies & gentlemen...I'm SURE youse already knows how I roll. 

Only really one thin' to do. 

OK...let's say it all together..."PLAY BOTH VIDS"!!! Haha!! 



So, my fellow Dino-diggin' Parisians...never mind the clouds! 

Forget the sprinkles & downpours! 


Dino got this!
