To all my Friends,
My book is available for purchase for reading. All proceeds (when publishing costs are covered) will be donated to the ole church in the neighborhood - "St. Joseph" - In the West End of New Rochelle, NY
We all know how important to try and keep these historic churches open. They mean so much to so many people that were baptized, confirmed, married and of course the funeral's of our friends & family.
The book is available through me (save tax & shipping) for only $20 in paperback form.
Below is an newspaper article that was recently written about myself and the book.
Send me an E-Mail or call 914-374-8888 and I will be happy to send out a book right away.
Thank you In Advance,
Sincerely and Happy Reading,
Dennis Dion Nardone
PS I know some of you have purchased the book, again thank you! But you might be interested in reading the article.

Dennis Nardone remembers. And he should, considering that his memory, and not any one person, is the main protagonist in his recently self-published book titled “Growing Up in the West End of New Rochelle, New York in the 50’s-60’s: My Life, My Neighborhood.”
In his book, Nardone covers it all.
Whether it’s where he and his friends bought their baseballs, the thrill of playing a game of tackle football in the winter, or the sights and sounds of Italian men chattering while smoking their cigars, between his pages, a sense of nostalgia is always nearby.
“I wrote it because there’s so much history and community,” Nardone says. “Every time I talk to people, I talk about memories in the community and how growing up was different from today.”
By trade Nardone is a DJ, and former 30-year law enforcement officer, but with his acute sense of nostalgia, sometimes he seems more akin to a conjurer than anything else.
But instead of magic, Nardone conjures memories.
“From all over the country, I’ve gotten phone calls from grown men telling me, ‘You did it to me,’” he says in reference to his new book. “‘You put a tear in my eye.’”
It’s not the plot of his recent book that captures Nardone’s audience, it’s the feelings that his iterations—or more accurately reiterations—evoke.
“I got one guy who called me, and he says, ‘I gave the book to my mother who’s 89 years old,’” Nardone, now a resident of Harrison told the Review. “She still lives in the old West [New Rochelle] and she still hasn’t put the book down. She feels like it’s 1960.”
Sentimentality is an emotion that Nardone encounters not infrequently throughout his days. While his most recent artistic venture took the form of an 18-chapter-long book that was published this past May, since 1998 he has worked as a disc jockey for WVOX in New Rochelle and for more than a decade of that time, he has been playing—what else—oldies music from the 1950s and 1960s, doo wop in particular.

“Collectively, [doo wop] was vocal harmonization, and I relate that to community—people together,” Nardone says. “You got together, you stood on the corner and you sang music. It didn’t matter who you were, what kind of work you did, you just got together; if you could carry a tune, you sang.”
Every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. he brings listeners—who tune in from all around the country, according to Nardone—a slice of their past, from artists like Dion, to The Regents, and everything in between.
Nardone says that sometimes 40 out of the 50 songs he plays in one, three-hour set will come from requests by people tuning in—a level of connection which has him always coming back for more.
“I like that one-on-one connection,” Nardone says in reference to his attraction to the airwaves. “The only thing between us is air… especially with community radio.”
Don’t be mistaken, though.
Nardone isn’t the only one interested in stirring the pot of days long past. His audience, particularly those who call in, play an equitable role in reflecting on memories of their own.
Dennis Nardone also hosts second show on Saturday during which he plays a wider range of music, including songs from the ‘60s and ‘70s.
“There are regulars and they want the same song,” Nardone says, “Why? Because there’s some sort of memory attached to it—it was their wedding song, or one when they met their boyfriend or it was a summer beach song that they remember from 60 years ago—it’s amazing. How it puts them right there. And it happens to me as well.”
