On This Day In Dino-history: December 12, 1975

Image result for dean martin drunk on johnny carson

Hey pallies, likes we're likes just 'bout at the half-way mark to our reverent remembrance of Dino-departure Day, December 25, 1995 and this Dino-day, December 12 is not only the anniversary of the birthday of our Dino's bestest of best pallie, Mr. Frank Sinatra, but also 'nother swankly significant day in all of Dino-history.

Likes it was on December 12, in the year of our Dino 1975, that our most beloved Dino appeared on "The Tonight Show" with host Johnny Carson in what were probably his more memorable moments appearin' on late night television.  Below is the youtube vid of the intriguin' interview that Mr. Carson coolly conducted with our King of Cool.  This particular vid is one of several shared on youtube and as of scribin' this, this vid has had OVER  2 MILLION 350 THOUSAND HITS!

What makes this swank segment of our Dino patterin' with Mr. Carson and Mr. Bob Hope so incredibly intriguin'  is that it appears that our main man had been enjoyin' liberal liquid libations before comin' on the show....indeed our  Dino appears to actually be stoned and we get to experience  Drunky Dino.  As Dino-philes all know, our Dino most often played drunk in his 'Vegas baby 'Vegas night club act 'n on the Dino-show, usually havin' apple juice in his glass, just makin' like he's drunk.  But, likes in this appearance by our Dino has been partyin' before he would later attend Mr. Sinatra's birthday party.   So, sit back and enjoys our swingin' Dino under the influence....with no holds barred!

We remain,

Yours in Dino,

Dino Martin Peters

This trio of classic comedy "The Dean Martin Celebrity Roast" Volumes 1-3 comes to digital for the first time.

A new generation gets an opportunity to watch the hilarious celebrity roasts which inspire the Comedy Central Celebrity roasts.




Never Before Available on Any Digital Platform, Each 9-Roast Volume
Will Be Available for $14.99; Individual Episodes Are $1.99

This fall, Dino goes digital with "THE BEST OF THE DEAN MARTIN CELEBRITY ROASTS: VOLUMES 1-3."

Never before released on any digital platform, the Roastmaster General will be available exclusively on iTunes beginning Dec. 11, with three "Best of" compilation releases priced at $14.99; individual episodes will be available for $1.99 each.

The classic TV archivists at Time Life will release additional digital content throughout 2018 and beyond.

What originally began as one-off specials to boost ratings for his variety show, "The Dean Martin Celebrity Roasts" evolved into a fixture on NBC's Thursday night lineup from 1973 to 1984.

Across those 11 years, Dean, Rat Pack Royalty and his panel of celebrity pals successfully ridiculed, embarrassed and made fun of Tinsletown giants like Johnny Carson, Bob Hope, Lucille Ball, Jackie Gleason, Don Rickles and Martin himself, to name a few, and America ate it up.

Anybody with thick skin and a good agent was fair game, and Martin was a legendary ringleader who set the tone and encouraged the freewheeling spirit that makes these roasts still so fascinating, even decades later.

Each volume of "THE BEST OF THE DEAN MARTIN CELEBRITY ROASTS" features 9 uproarious episodes.

VOLUME 1 features complete and unedited roasts of Bob Hope, Sammy Davis Jr., Telly Savalas, Michael Landon, Angie Dickinson, Joe Garagiola, Peter Marshall, Joe Namath and even a roast of Dean Martin.

VOLUME 3 features Muhammad Ali, Redd Foxx, Evel Knievel, George Burns, Dennis Weaver, Gabe Kaplan, Jack Klugman, Joan Collins and the second roast of Michael Landon. Home viewers are sure to howl over the bashing and basting of so many celebrities by a spectacular array of the day's top personalities.

"THE BEST OF THE DEAN MARTIN CELEBRITY ROASTS: VOLUMES 1-3" joins "THE BEST OF THE CAROL BURNETT SHOW, VOLUMES 1-4" also available on iTunes; and, throughout 2018, Time Life will release additional TV classics on the platform.

But as long as you love me so
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow

All I Want Is DINO: Factory Sealed! - Dean Martin - The Nashville Sessions - 1983

Hey pallies, likes  welcome back to Day 8, yet 'nother delightful day of Dino-winter season here at ilovedinomartin as we move day by day to Dino-departure-day.....the 25th of December....the day that our Dino departed our planet in 1995.   Likes, one of the thin's that we most enjoy doin' in preparation for this reverent remembrance of our Dino's passin' is to search the ol' world wide web for delightful Dino-giftin' idears, many of which are easy on the pocketbook, but would be awesomely appreciated by Dino-philes of all ages and stages.  So,   likes today we wanna shares with you a Dino-treasure that we are powerfully positive that simply a ton of Dino-holics woulda loves to be gifted with this Dino-season.               

From the incredibly  intriguin' internet sales site, "Etsy" comes the offerin' of the vinyl recordin' of our Dino's last disc tagged "Dean Martin - The Nashville Sessions," released by Warner Brothers in 1983.  This is the only major Dino-al-b-um that has yet to be released in CD format, and we woulda guess is somewhat rare to come across.   As you will note below, it is bein' offered by a chick whose sales site is tagged "Missysvinyl."

This particular al-b-um is "factory sealed" meanin' that it oughta be in mint condition with only " a minor saw cut top right of album," meanin' that it was originally sold as a cutout.  Hard for those of us deeply devoted to our Dino to think that his last recordin' woulda ever reached the closeout status of a "cutout."  And, likes as you will note pallies, it's a beautiful bargain at only $9.99 plus shippin'.

Likes as we have never owned this original al-b-um ourselves, we would be deeply deeply delighted to have it gifted to us this Dino-winter season for Dino-sure.  To checks this offer out at it's original site, simply clicks on the tag of this here Dino-gram.  And, we simply can't resist sharin' one more time, that greatest of great vid of our Dino, indeed our most beloved Dino's only MTV vid recordin' of  "Since I Met You Baby" directed by his youngest boypallie Ricci James who recently himself passed from this life.  So, below is a pristine version of that remarkable recordin'.

We remain,

Yours in Dino

Growing up in an Italian family meant certain things were a given: Pasta and church on Sunday, no meat on Friday and this man’s music (our Dino) for the holidays.

Hey pallies, likes the days of our Dino-wintery month celebration are tickin' off as it is already Day 6 of our   coolest of cool celebration of Dino-wintertime and reverently reverent remembrance of our Dino's departure from our presence on December 25, 1995.  Today we drop by the blog tagged "LILACS & RUST" where a cool chick tagged Michele holds forth.

Miss Michele is one of dem bloggers who likes to share a countdown of Christmas croons, and yesterday, Day 5 of her swank series, she awesomely accented our most most beloved Dino with a bit of patter and that hugely fav Dino-wintery,"Let It Snow."  Back in the year of our Dino 2013, "Let It Snow" was the "Most Played Christmas Song Of 2013."  Likes goes  HERE to check out our patter on the delightful Dino-accomplishment.

25 Days Of Christmas Songs: Day 5

Hello, Vixens!!!  Welcome back to the countdown!!!
(Original source unknown).
Growing up in an Italian family meant certain things were a given:  Pasta and church on Sunday, no meat on Friday and this man’s music for the holidays.
But he did so much more than sing.  He was in the original “Ocean’s 11”, one of my favorite disaster movies (“Airport”) and two of my favorite guilty pleasure shows (“Charlie’s Angels” & “Vegas”).  That is in addition to his many TV specials, celebrity roasts, dozens of movies and numerous albums.
Nicknamed “The King of Cool”, Dino Paul Crocetti was also a member of “The Rat Pack” and one half of the comedy team Martin and Lewis.  He sang a multitude of Christmas songs throughout his career, but this one is my favorite (followed very closely by “It’s A Marshmallow World“).
The Dean Martin Variety Show
Dean Martin circa 1970 (original source unknown).
Dean Martin:  “Let It Snow“.
I do not own the rights to anything.  I am just sharing some things that I love with you   🙂
What are some of your favorite Christmas songs?
Until next time, fellow Vixens, happy listening!!!
