Fordham Conversations: Dion DiMucci and the Doo Wop Corner

by Jake Neher
Dion DiMucci

Dion DiMucci

Records like "A Teenager in Love," "Runaround Sue," and "The Wanderer" made Dion one of the most popular pre-British Invasion artists in the world. He will talk about his upbringing in the Fordham section of the Bronx, the corner of Belmont and 187th - now called the "Doo Wop Corner" - where he and his group The Belmonts polished some of their early hits, and racial tensions between Bronx-area Doo Wop groups.

News Director George Bodarky and WFUV anchor/reporter Claudia Morell will handle the election coverage, while Eric Holland will control the music side of things. The evening will also include political humor from comedians Scott Blakeman and Brad Stine.
