I have loved all the songs Dion made famous, especially the early hits. I sang Dion songs so often that in 1962 at a party that I hosted, i played a tape I made dubbing over Dion songs. My friend Jim went on the dance floor and asked the folks who was the singer. They all said Dion and were surprised when Jim told them it was me. My aunt around that time was willing to put up the money for me to record some songs, however, being too involved with pharmacy school I never accepted her offer. I applaud Dion, for his faithfulness to his wife Sue and remember when, at a concert he gave in North Tonawanda, NY how he announced his marriage anniversary and everyone applauded.
