This One’s for Mom

News today that singer Al Martino died in his hometown of Philadelphia. People of my generation know Martino (if they know him at all) as Johnny Fontane from “The Godfather.”  But my parents’ generation remember Martino as a very popular pre-rock-and-roll singer who also charted in the mid-1960s. And my mom will tell you that Al was one of her all-time favorites.

This one’s for you, Mom.
