Host Deardra Shuler returns to the Doo-Wop era via interviewing Warren Gradus of the Belmonts known for songs such as “The Wanderer,” “Run Around Sue,” “A Teenager In Love,” and “Tell Me Why.” The Belmonts were formed by Angelo D’Aleo, Fred Milano and Carlo Mastrangelo, high school buddies from the Arthur Avenue section of the Bronx. The Belemonts first big hit in 1958 was “I Wonder Why.” This led to TV appearances on Dick Clark’s American Bandstand. Hits followed.  Warren Gradus replaced lead singer, Frank Lyndon in the early 1970s.  In 2000, Dion and the Belmonts were inducted in the Vocal Group Hall of Fame.
