Danny G's SPECIAL Father's Day Sunday Serenade with Dino: "Gentle On My Mind"

 Welcome back, Ol' friends o' mine! 

So So happy youse dropped by!  

First of all I wanna wish a "Happy Daddy-O Day" to ALL the swingin' Dino-lovin' dad's out there! 

Man! What a COOL COOL thin' it is, pals... to be able to celebrate all the COOL COOL fathers & father figures in our lives...right in the midst of "The Month That Coolness Came to Earth"!! 

Truly a special time of year, my friends. 

Today is also the very first day of Summer 2021! 


All these very special occasions...all at once & I'm thinkin' a BEA U TI FUL Summer day is perfecto to honor Dino & ALL these GREAT fellas, who mean/meant SO SO much! 

Now youse may know by now...I pick a Special Serenade every year for today's tune. 

A jam that brings me back to my youngest days of Dino-dom. 

A familiar song that reminds me of my Dad & keeps him in my thoughts everyday. 

Well, as I always do...I reach for a specific kind of Dino al b um. 

A real blue-collar sound. Pop was BIG into those Dino "trucker" jams! Haha!! 

The "C.B. radio" type tunes. 

A jam 'bout some down & out dude...tryin' to make his way back home or maybe some carefree fella just enjoyin' the simple life. 

Yea...those were his faves. 

Still cracks me up thinkin' 'bout him singin' along to these songs! 

He thought they were SO SO cool & I thought HE was SO SO cool for knowin' the words! Hahaha!!! 

What a GREAT guy Dad was! Great memories, pallies. 

Today's SPECIAL SERENADE takes me ALL the way back to the mid-70's! 

Man! Where'd that decade go?! 

OK pals...let's get the music flowin'! 

No one COOLER than our Dino to keep that "easy livin" feelin'...cruisin' down the ol' white line of life, pallies! Haha!! 

That's my attempt at trucker talk! Haha!!'s to ALL the father figures. Includin' our very own "Father figure" of this here humble little blog...Dino Martin Peters. 

Your daily efforts to keep the Dino-message alive & thrivin'...are TRULY appreciated, pal! Thank you & I salute youse!  Not an easy job. 

So mi amici...let's keep that special guy in mind today. No matter who he was...or how he was part of your life...this one's for him. 

Thanks for everythin', Dad & thanks, Dino... for keepin' his memory alive! 

Your both FOREVER "Gentle On My Mind". 

Ciao & enjoy!

I have to give a Happy Fathers Day shout to all the dads out there on this very special day. A wonderful post and music selection Danny G., and of course what better way to celebrate this day than with Dean Martin. A wonderful song AND video to go along with it. You always manage to make the perfect selection my friend!

Have a great week and try and stay cool

Hey pallie, likes youse have chosen one of the coolest of cool classic Dino-croons for this very very special Dino-day. Those of us who are deeply deeply devoted to our Dino ponder what it woulda been like to have our most beloved Dino as our personal Daddy-o. Oh, to have been part of fam Martin and to have been able to be in the immediate presence of our one and only Dino as well grew day by day. Thanks for the kind words Danny-o, but of course all the honor and praise goes only to our daddy-o of daddy-os....our main man...our DINO!
