Then, he took the name Damone (his Italian mother's maiden name). He entered the talent search, on Arthur Godfrey's Talent Scouts & won the competition, in Apr 1947 - This led to him getting a regular role on Godfrey's show (as with many other winners). At the station, he ran into Milton Berle, who provided a chance to do regular shows at two night clubs. By the middle of 1947, he had a contract with Mercury Records. His first release, "I Have But One Heart" (30 Aug), reached #7 on the Billboard chart & "You Do" (1 Nov), reached the same peak. These were followed by a number of other hits.
In 1948 he got his own weekly radio show, Saturday Night Serenade. His final album was issued in 1997, with other albums re-packaged & re-released. 2.
