 Welcome back, all my hard workin' amici! 

Happy Labor Day Weekend! 

Happy September, too! 

Today feels like a GREAT day to catch our breaths. Don't it?  It's a day to chill out...have a drink...& just relax! 

Monday's day off is a time to honor ALL the GREAT GREAT folks who work every day & do their part to contribute to this GREAT GREAT country of ours! Youse keep the machine runnin', pallies! 

Now...we ALL have our job to do, my friends. From police & firemen & stay-at-home moms & dads. Each one is important & is worthy of praise. 

Well, pals...I can think of a VERY VERY COOL COOL HARD WORKIN' fella...goes by the name "Dino". This was one laborin' kinda guy, my friends! Sure, he made it look it easy. But...Dean was one of the BUSIEST cats in the entertainment world, pallies! From performin' live & recordin' makin' movies & doin' TV shows...He was some kinda work-aholic! Haha!! 

People can say that he was lazy & only played golf...but WE knows the facts, mi amici! 

I have one more VERY special somebody in mind today, pals. Mama mia. My mom. Mama G.! It's her birthday today! Yay, Mom! 

She was/is ALWAYS there for ol' Danny G., even when I was actin' like a fool! Haha!! Which was quite often, pals! Hahaha!!! 

Now THAT'S Labor! Ha! 

She's sacrificed a lot for me & ALWAYS has my back. Oh, and btw...Mom was one of the first to introduce me to the sweet sweet sound...of the voice...that is Dean Martin!  

I thinks I will play one of her all time FAVE Dino-tunes for this week's Serenade, my friends. As I likes to do every year... "In the Misty Moonlight". 

It's sure to bring a happy thought of Mama G. & is a cool cool jam to relax to on this chilled-out kind of day. Not to's ALSO leadin' us...slowly...towards a SPOOKY Halloweeny vibe! 

Man! What a multi-taskin' type Dino-tune, pals! 

So, here we's go, pallies! 

Enjoy your weekend! 

Happy Birthday, Mom! 

Let's keep that Dino & vino flowin'!!!

Danny G's Sunday Serenade with Dino: "Fools Rush In"

 Welcome back mi amici! 

Nice of youse to stop by. 

Well, here we are, pallies...the tail end of August. Man o man...where do the days go?! Even months fly by like weeks!

For today's Serenade, thinks' I'm gonna ask our BESTEST pal, Dean, to start windin' this Summery season down with some COOL COOL & VERY laid back croonin'. "Fools Rush In' should set the Dino-mood so so PER FEC TO! 

Real mellow & calmin', pals. 

What I love 'bout this particular jam is it's tellin' of throwin' it all against the be with a very special someone. Sensible or not...right or wrong. Now THAT's passion! Haha!! Man o' man, pallies...I better chill out, here! This is supposed to relax me! Haha!! 

Now, this tune has been sung many many times by many many singers, pallies. But...NO ONE & I mean NO ONE can turn it into PURE PURE tranquility likes our pal! 

So...when the grills have burned out...& everythin' is cleaned up & put away...find yourselves some "alone" time. 

Just youse & Dean. 

Pour up a little vino & soak it all in.

 Welcome back, mi amici. 

Unfortunately , pals...we lost 'nother GREAT, this week. Crooner, entertainer & all 'round Cool Cool fella...Tony Bennett. 

I think it's much much more than just's well deserved & a MUST I do 'nother SPECIAL "Duetin' with Dino", featurin' Tony B. 

He's the last of a bygone era, in my humble opinion, pallies. 

Guys like Tony, Dino, Frank...just aren't singers...they are TRUE legends! 

The kinda men that seem to be harder & harder to find these days. True gentlemen. Class acts that the world could use a lot more of. 

But...let's not be blue, pals! at our crazy little blog...let's celebrate Tony & Dino! Swingin' together & havin' fun! 

Just think of ALL the top shelf music, movies, TV shows & ENDLESS amounts of COOLNESS they left us! Truly amazin'. 

We can only sit back & soak in the magic, pallies o' mine. 

And that's exactly what they wanted us to do. 

Enjoy the medley, my friends. 

Salute, Tony! 

You were one of the very best.

Hot, sunny days are ahead! Yay!!! 

Now, friends o' it just me...or do youse worry 'bout Summer flyin' by?  

I must be crazy! Haha!! 

It just started & I'm already ‘fraid of it slippin' through my Dino-diggin' fingers! Haha!! I thinks its 'cause Spring was kinda damp this year...SO SO much damn rain! 

Oh well, pals...we'll hold onto these long, muggy days...extra tight!

Now who says "Summer fun" better than Dino? No one! He's the party-master! Ha! 

Well...I guess the best place to start is ALWAYS one of my FAVE summery Dino-al b ums..."Cha Cha De Amor". I think there's an extra "Cha" in the song title actually. Haha...whatever. Yes, pals...this little vinyl Frisbee is JAM-PACKED with HOT HOT & yet VERY VERY COOL Dino-tunes. 

Let's grab the title track, for today's Serenade,  to set the mood.

Pretty damn well here in ol' Massachusetts! 

Mornins' & evenins' a little chilly, but I cants complain a bit, my friends. The days are BEA U TI FUL! Amen to that! 

So as Spring is slowly slippin' through my fingers...I just gots to thinkin' 'bout what the Summer will hold. Plenty of hot & humid days for sure. Some beachin' & poolin', obviously. But what else? Knowin' myself...not too much! Haha!! Nah. I'm more of a chill out kinda fella. 

Probably the way our bestest pal, Dino was. 

We all read how he was more than happy just relaxin' on a golf course or watchin' TV at home. Yup, that was Dean...& that is me. 

I know...I know...I'm always lookin' for any & every little similarity 'tween Dino & myself. Haha!! But, hey! Why not?! Who better to compare to & model after? Am I right, pallies? DEFINATELY. 

And guess what else? When I'm chillin' & doin' ab so lute ly nothin'...I'm actually...usually...thinkin' 'bout this crazy life. Yea, that's me too. 

Well, pals...just so happens...that as i'm ponderin' those days & years gone by...Dean seems to be in just 'bout every thought. The background music to my life. The people I've known. The places I've gone. They all seem to somehow have Dino attached. 

What can I say, my friends? He's my main man! Haha!! 

He's my pal & my inspiration. 

A connectin' energy that links it ALL together. 

Today's Serenade..."I Love You, For Sentimental Reasons" one of those Dino-jams that goes through my thoughts all the time. Perfect background to my memories & PERFECTO to take me back to those GREAT GREAT easy goin' days. 

Let's check it out & see where it brings youse, mi amici.

Either way, pallies...It's GREAT havin' Dino walkin' along with you!

Danny G's SPECIAL "Month Coolness Came to Earth" Happy Birthday Sunday Serenade with Dino: "How Sweet It Is"

 Hey pals...welcome back, & welcome to 'nother "Month Coolness Came to Earth"! 

Man o man, I am just SO SO pumped! 

Can't even believe our pal amongst pals is turnin' 106, this comin' Wednesday! 

Don't forget to checks out all your local classic TV channels! I'm SURE they will be rockin' Dino flicks all damn day! Haha!! 

Man...What a time we've had, huh, pals? Day after day & year after year...Dino has been an ever present companion for us all. He's my "Cumpare". My friend. Swingin' through life with me. My ups, my downs. Side by side & never even a worry that he would hit splitsville. 

It might be hard to believe or even understand, to many...but to we "Dino-holics"'s as simple & natural as olives in a martini. That's just the way it is! 

Dean is our pal. Like family, really. The COOL uncle who shows up for every party, weddin', or cook out. And when he does...MAN...what a time it is! The room wakes up! Dance floors are flooded like the party just started! 

Dino just has that effect on us. He equals FUN & GREAT TIMES! 

Now pals...I could go on & on 'bout what Dean means to me & how much happiness he's brought to my life. But...I think youse knows EXACTLY what I'm talkin' 'bout. He brings his spirit to us all.  

On June 7th, 1917...God sent us a gift. A gift that TRULY keeps on givin'. We were the lucky ones, mi amici. Most of us, anyway, can say we walked the Earth at the same time as he did. 

Now, to me...that's VERY cool! 

Of course, Dino's music & movies...TV shows & live performances, will be 'round forever,'s OUR generations that were here WITH him! VERY cool, indeed. 

OK, pallies...I gotta go. Got some Dino tunes I gotta get jammin' too! Haha!! 

Happy Birthday, Dino! 

Hey, wait a minute!!! 

I got SO caught up in the Dino-moment...I almost forgot the main reason I is here...the SERENADE!!! 

Well, pals...this ones easy. All I needs to do is think of Dino. He's my guy. My mentor...& my friend. Man o man, pallies..."How Sweet It Is!"
