Perry Como & Dean Martin: Hometown Geography 101

  Hey pallies, likes we simply loves how when we goes searchin' with the ol' google blog puttin' the glorious name of our most gloriously  beloved Dino in the search bar that we never ever know where we will land and what new Dino-discovery that we are 'bout to make!

Case in point is recently  while doin' our usual 20 pages of Dino-explorin' we landed at new-to-ilovedinomartin pad, "Adam, Justin, and Luke Growing Up... and other things. Will keep up as much as possible."  Their post, "Perry Como & Dean Martin: Hometown Geography 101," features classic footage of our Dino visitin' the Perry Como Show for Kraft Music Hall and talkin' 'bout their hometowns of Steubenville, Ohio and Cannonsburg, Pennsylvania usin' a map that Como jokes "It looks like a blown up picture of one of your (Dino's) eyeballs."

 Likes no way of tellin' which of the boys be it Adam, Justin, or Luke who created the Dino-centric post, but we are delighted that they did so and thanks 'em very much for sharin' this terrific televisional Dino-history with us!  To checks this out in it's original site, simply clicks on the opennin' words of this Dino-devotion.  Dino-learnin' and Dino-growin', DMP

Perry Como & Dean Martin: Hometown Geography 101

I used to go to Steubenville often. Canonsburg is mentioned here too.

This is the info that was provided on the youtube site:

Pierino Ronald Como, born in Canonsburg, PA, is visited by Dino Paul Crocetti, born in Steubenville, OH. In this clip Perry Como (1912-2001) and Dean Martin (1917-1995) use a low-tech map to discuss growing up 35 miles apart. Additional assistance provided by the Videolongeaux Cartographic Division.

Thanks go out to RADIOBOCA,, for posting Parts 1 & 2 of Dean Martin visits the Perry Como Show, Kraft Music Hall on NBC from which video and audio snippets were collected. I threw another map, an enhanced Google map, myself.

Canonsburg looks much like Steubenville!

I just did a bit of research at Wikipedia.

It seems that our Dino's parents and Perry Como's parents may well have come from the same part of Italy: Abruzzo.

I wonder if the Comos and the Crocettis were distantly (or closely) related?
