Dean Martin - Smoking On Television

Hey pallies, we were doin' some random blog searchin' for Dino-treasure recently when we happened 'pon a blog with the most interestin'ly tag "juststuffifoundontheinternet."   The theme of the particular post was "Smoking On Television" and youse guessed it  pallies....a mixed quartet of two Dino-images and two Dino-gifs were included with an extremely eclectic mix of sources that included Lucky Strikes, Tom and Jerry, Marlboro, "I Love Lucy", "The Flintstones", "The Tonight Show", and "The Twilight Zone."

Created by someone tagged "Thumbup", we dig all all the Dino-stuff, but we are most drawn to the two Dino-gifs, which show our most beloved Dino havin' fun on the Dino-show.   One can hardly think of the Dino-show without imagin' our King of Cool with his ever present Kent cigarette in hand.    Dino and smokin' when hand in hand durin' the nine year run of his amazin' variety series on the small screen.

Likes, we sez our thanks to "Thumbup" for their sharin' of our Dino in their salute to smokin' on television.  To checks this post out in it's original source, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report.  Dino-always, ever, and only, DMP

Today Dean Martin, old memories of childhood of hilarity in front of his films with Jerry Lewis, a beautiful mouth of rital not clear and this playful voice to the possible. Profile Image
Hey pallies, likes we are deeply deeply delighted to announce that recently while doin' a bit of Dino-searchin' on the ol' 'web, we swankly struck Dino-pay dirt of the international sort when we checked out a powerfully potent post at the blog "Mixcloud," where a Parisian  Dino-holic tagged "MyLifeIsAcid" has posted a podcast tagged "One Hour With Dean Martin."

Likes we were totally totally thrilled to spend a harmonious hour listenin' to our most beloved Dino croonin' a beautiful bunch of cool croons.....19--count 'em---19 in total!  What we deeply deeply  digs is that the marvelous mix of melodies include some of our Dino's greatest of great hits, while a numerous  number are ones that are much much lesser known...some that we gotta 'fess up that we never ever heard before!

And, the podcast continues with a Dino-emulator tagged Mr. Peter Ritmo serenades listeners with a few of his covers of classic croons a la Dino...and he is pretty good at doin' so...he's no Dino, but, likes of course, there is only one King of Cool!  Below, we have listed the Dino-tunes in the order that the are played on the podcast.  We sez our thank you very much to "MyLifeIsAcid" for puttin' together this purely potent Dino-cast that has and will continue to gives so so much pure pleasure to Dino-philes 'round the universe!

Likes, we have attempted to copy the podcast here, but if you find that that ain't workin', simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-gram to goes to the original site.

I take advantage of my Soundcloud account to restore a little exposure to my old mixtapes including that devoted to Dean Martin. The others will follow, I'm doing all the uploader again. Good listening.


Some discs bought at the same garage in the suburbs (they had to make a local Rat Pack ...), beautiful pieces, it did not take much more to dedicate my new mixtape to one and the same artist.

Today Dean Martin, old memories of childhood of hilarity in front of his films with Jerry Lewis, a beautiful mouth of rital not clear and this playful voice to the possible.

I really enjoyed crafting it.

Ladies and gentleman, please take care of yourself

 Je profite de mon compte Soundcloud pour redonner un peu d'exposition à mes anciennes mixtapes dont celle ci consacrée à Dean Martin. Les autres suivront, je suis entrain de toutes les uploader à nouveau. Bonne écoute.


Quelques disques achetés au même vide-grenier en banlieue (ils ont du se faire un Rat Pack local…), des morceaux magnifiques, il ne m’en a pas fallu beaucoup plus pour consacrer ma nouvelle mixtape à un seul et même artiste.

Aujourd’hui Dean Martin, des vieux souvenirs d’enfance d’hilarité devant ses films avec Jerry Lewis, une belle gueule de rital pas nette et cette voix espiègle au possible.

J’ai réellement pris un plaisir fou à l’élaborer.

Ladies and gentleman, please take care of yourself

Dean Martin And Jerry Lewis: Old-School And OTR

Hey pallies, likes we've been featurin' quite the number of Dino and Jerry posts as of late, and today we continue with a post that has been in draft format since we located it back in 2013.  Truth be told pallies, we currently have over 1400---count 'em---1400 draft posts....that's 'nough Dino-grams for several years even if we never ever found new Dino-devotion that we continue to uncover almost daily.

That said, today's Dino-message comes from the blog "Mr. Blog's Tepid Ride," and is tagged, "Dean Martin And Jerry Lewis: Old-School And OTR (Old Time Radio).  We begin by givin' you an 'lert that this particular post contains a number of errors in the tellin' of the story of our most beloved Dino and his most beloved partner, Mr. Jerry's Lewis relationship.  Likes, we invite you to read this through and see how many glarin' errors it contains...and through patter to let's us know what they are.

Also, this particular blogger clearly does not get the coolest of cool chemistry that our Dino and Mr. Lewis had in both their personal and professional lives as the greatest comedic team ever to walk the earth.  But, we guess, everyone is entitled to their Dino-opinion even when they can't get their Dino-facts straight.  Likes the one great thin' 'bout this post is at the end it includes a link to the 'net pad "Relic Radio" that includes a podcast  of the November 4, 1949 edition of The Martin And Lewis Show where our Dino and Mr. Lewis Try To Report A Murder.

Likes, 'gain send us some patter pallies 'bout the glarin' errors this Dino-post has from the pen of "Mr. Blog's Tepid Ride."  To checks this out in it's original source, likes clicks on the tag of this here Dino-gram.

Dean Martin And Jerry Lewis: Old-School And OTR

June 6, 2013

Now: Dean Martin, booze-hound member of The Rat Pack, world-famous crooner, deceased.
Then: Up and coming singer performing in small clubs, still developing his style.

Now: Jerry Lewis, icon to the French, former longtime host of the Muscular Dystrophy Telethon, movie star.
Then: Up and coming comic performing in small clubs, still developing his style.


In the era of radio, with movies and Las Vegas far in their futures, Martin and Lewis had gone about as far as their careers were going to go. Martin back then was good but not great. Lewis’ act seemed to have reached a peak. Working separately, and in fact not even knowing each other, they were finding it harder and harder to find bookings. So one day, a nightclub owner decided to put together his two weak acts and see what they could come up with. That night, after just having met, they totally improvised an act that set the crowds to laughter and so a team was born.

In my mind, a weak team. I realize that they were an amazing popular radio act, lasting from 1949 to 1953. On the surface they were an Abbott and Costello style act: smooth straight man and childlike jokester. The problem was, Abbott and Costello had refined their act until they were a well oiled machine, doing classic and time tested vaudeville acts while Martin and Lewis were tossed together out of the blue. I always found their shows an uncomfortable fit.


Even the cover of this comic knows they are a strange fit.

Often, shows would simply be Martin as an emcee, introducing guests and singing, while being interrupted by Lewis doing some kind of manic-moron act. Other times they would be thrust into some sitcom-like skit that served neither well as Martin was always apologizing for his sidekick, whom he invariably called a moron. So why were they together?

Their styles never meshed. Martin didn’t fit into Lewis’ style of wackiness and Lewis’ attempts to fit into Martin’s suave milieu were generally uncomfortable failures. In many shows,  it seemed as if Jerry Lewis was simply there to (badly) croon parodies of Dean Martin songs. (Ironically, it would be Lewis’ impersonation of Martin that propelled The Nutty Professor to huge box office numbers years later.)

But despite what I see as an awkward and ill-fitting pairing, the team did well, moving from TV to movies and always finding success. Eventually, as with Abbott and Costello, the Beatles, and the Soviet Union, they broke up. And is it an accident that after the break-up each went on to greater heights? Dean Martin found fame and fortune alongside Frank Sinatra on the Las Vegas stage, while Jerry Lewis continued to make movies and become a comedy icon. (For my money, The King of Comedy is his greatest role.)

So if there is a moral here I leave it for you to find. All I see is that you can never predict success. And a lot of people like Martin and Lewis more than I do. (One person who hates them both is Sammy Petrillo, but that is a blog for another time.)

Want to hear some episodes of The Martin and Lewis Show? Click on this link  ( and listen to a few episodes at Relic Radio and while you are there, poke around a little. there is a ton of great stuff there.

Ed's Epistle: Deana Martin to Marshal the Dean Martin Festival Parade


Hey pallies, looks like Deana Martin herself will be heading the festivities at this year Dean Martin Festival there in Stuebenville Ohio!

Yours truly has made plans to attend this years festival, and plan on taking many, many pictures, and videos, and plans on sharing the memories with THE ilovedinomartin blog!



Hey pallies, likes today is one of dem days that we wishes that we had taken Spanish when we were in school, so that we coulda translate today's Dino-gram to all youse Dino-philes.  Likes from a blog tagged "KABEMAYOR  Fotografías de Cine (Movie Pictures)"  comes an incredibly irresistible image of a comic homagin' our most beloved Dino and Mr. Lewis tagged "VISIONES DE HOLLYWOOD:  DEAN MARTIN Y JERRY LEWIS."

Likes even we can translate this title in Spanish  to English...."HOLLYWOOD VISIONS: DEAN MARTIN & JERRY LEWIS."  But, likes we can't translate the rest of the comic, and deeply desires that we could.  It if wasn't in an image form, we woulda place it into google's great translation service
and shares it with youse, but we ain't found a way to put an image into that particular google search engine.

We are wistfully wishfully wonderin' if one of our Dino-holic pallies who speaketh Spanish woulda be willin' to step forward to help us with this particular Dino-effort.  Likes if we ever coulda find the time we could copy down each Spanish word of the post and then type it into a google search, but right now dudes we ain't seein' that happen soon.

So, likes for now enjoys the delightful drawin's of our most beloved Dino and his most beloved partner in comedy, Mr. Jerry Lewis that don't need no translatin'!  To checks this out in it's original source and get a bigger image of the comic, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-report.

Yesterday in Dino-history: April 16, 1964

Hey pallies, likes yesterday was yet 'nother extremely important date in the life and times of our most beloved Dino. Likes thanks to a dude tagged "Rocketman5000" at "Inside the Rock Era" we got word that it was on the delightful Dino-day, April 16, 1964 that our great man recorded his coolest cool  croon ever...."Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime."

"Everybody Loves Somebody," a song co-written in 1947 by his pianist/accompanist Ken Lane. It went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, sold more than a million copies, and became the theme song of his NBC-TV variety series (1965-1974). The words "Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime" are inscribed on Dean Martin's grave marker.  Likes when it hit numero uno on the Billboard charts, our most beloved Dino knocked the Beatles off the charts, provin' once and for all that only our mighty mighty Dino coulda bust the Beatles!

 ilovedinomartin sez our thanks to "Rocketman5000" at "Inside the Rock Era" for bringin' this Dino-date to our attention so that we coulda shares it will all youse Dino-holics.  To view this in it's original format, likes just clicks on the tag of this here Dino-gram. And, for your Dino-viewin' and listenin' pleasure, we have included a stunnin' ver-s-ion of this chart-topper as recorded on the Dino-show. Dino-lovin', DMP

Hey pallies, likes we just never know where our most beloved Dino is goin' to turn up next and what the cool context will be.  Likes as we were doin' our almost daily Dino-searchin' via our pallies at Twingly Advanced Blog Search, we happily happened 'pon a ubber unique, terrific tumblr site tagged, "ClickHole - Because all content deserves to go viral."

Likes, it appears to be a remarkably random hangout and we were proudly pleased to see the name of our Dino bein' lovin'ly lifted up there.  The particular post is tagged "16 Chores That Every ’90s Kid Had To Do," and it is a boutifully beautifully bizarre list of happenin's related to the decade of the 90's.  Likes, smack dab in the middle of the list, at numbero 8 is the chore: "Making funeral arrangements for Dean Martin."

Indeed our King of Cool died on December 25, 1995, so it qualifies as a task that woulda need to be done, and how blessed coulda a '90's Deanager have been then to honor our Dino my bein' proudly privileged to make his sendin' off arrangements?!?!?!?!  Likes, in fact, it sounds like a incredibly intriguin' amazin' assigment for a Dino-phile of any age to take on.  For example pallies, likes which of our Dino's hundreds of tunes woulda youse want to play at Dino's funeral?

We thanks the pallie or pallies who hold court at "ClickHole" for includin' this most important Dino-event of the '90's in this particular post and surely raisin' the cool curiosity of many of their readership to learn 'bout our one and only Dino.   To checks this out in it's original source, and to read the other 15 thin's on the chore list, simply clicks on the tag of this Dino-gram.
