Dean Esposito was born in Encino, then lived in Hawaii and California before finally settling in Las Vegas. After earning a Bachelor’s in Communications/Broadcasting and Music from UNLV, he became program director and morning show on the college radio station. Eventually he was hired at the city’s Top 40 station Power 97, and then was offered a gig at crosstown R&B station KCEP, where he rose to the position of Program Director. Meanwhile, he was singing with a group called Esquire, and after going solo he eventually got signed by the 4th & B’way label; he first appeared on the Dance chart with “Summergirls”, which subsequently got to #50 Pop. From there we’re going into a series of 7″s, including this first single from the debut same-named album, 24/7. His biggest hit, “I Like It”, followed, but we’ll jump to the next two singles and the first single from his second album, Swingin’, during the rest of this week. I believe Dino may hold the distinction of having the most chart singles/Top 40 hits to be without a greatest hits album; thus these songs are rather hard to find in digital form. Most-likely the problem was the first album being on 4th & B’way, a subsidiary of Island Records, who were ultimately owned by PolyGram; then the second came out on a different PolyGram label, Polydor, and finally his last album, The Way I Am, was on EastWest Records, a rebirth of a dormant label from the 50s brought back by Atlantic Records. Thus, trying to get the rights and residuals squared away with three different entities was probably too much trouble for everyone. So add some rare Dino to your cloud this week!
