It's back to the Golden Age of doo-wop and classic songs of the era from Black and White groups. A conversation with Dion DiMucci, the Bronx born and raised singer who made his name first with his neighborhood group the Belmonts. We talk about his Italian American roots and his love of the blues, plus his life in music. Then, we explore the roads to doo-wop from gospel quartets, R&B, and jazz including songs by Sam Cooke, The Mills Brothers, and Jimmy Reed
