On January 1st 2012, the founding member of the Belmonts vocal group Freddie Milano passed away at age 72.

With the quartet Dion And The Belmonts and with the Belmonts as a trio, Freddie Milano recorded some of the most cherished doo-wop style and group vocal radio hits of the rock era's first golden decade. As a performer, Freddie Milano was also the nucleus of the Belmonts in concert for well over a half century.

This week Joel Najman's My Place program celebrates the life in music of Freddie Milano, the one Belmont who actually lived on Belmont Avenue in the Bronx
