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.
