The Duprees With Lou Costello

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Come get swept away in the music with the Duprees! Starting out in the early '60s, in Jersey City, New Jersey, the Duprees were discovered by George Paxton of Coed Records and former big band leader. Impressed with their smooth vocal quality, he had them record Jo Stafford's 1950s ballad "You Belong to Me" with Big Band arrangements. It was an instant national hit and the group's first million seller. The unmistakable sound was born and the hits kept coming. Some other songs you will hear "Take Me as I Am," "My Own True Love," and many others!

The host of the afternoon is WVLT 92.1 FM DJ Lou Costello. Lou is often known as "Philly's Phavorite DJ" and has worked with Bobby Rydell, Frankie Avalon, Tony Orlando, Jimmy Beaumont (The Skyliners), and Johnny Maestro (of the Crests and the Brooklyn Bridge) and the legendary Cozy Morley.
