*****************************************************************************************************************

1. Dino, (born Dino Esposito on July 20, 1963), is an American DJ, singer, songwriter and producer.

Dino earned his Bachelor’s Degree in Communications/Broadcasting and Music at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Shortly after, he received a job as a radio DJ at his college radio station as the program director with his own morning show called Urban Sunrise. Later becoming a Top 40 deejay at Nevada’s Power 97 station, he was offered a job at KCEP, Las Vegas’ largest black music station, eventually becoming its music director. During this time he also moonlighted as a local club DJ.

Dino then became a singer, first as part of the musical group Esquire, and later as a solo artist recording song hits during the late 1980s, including “I Like It”, “24/7”, “Summer Girls” and “Romeo.” In the initial up-swing of his career Dino performed in theme parks such as Knott’s Berry Farm in Buena Park, California with other artists such as Sweet Sensation and Linear. Eventually his album 24/7 reached the number 34 position on the Billboard 200 charts in 1989. Dino developed a wider fanbase when he was contracted to become the opening act for the musical group New Kids on the Block in the summer of that same year.

    Last.fm could solve the problem of artist page sharing by having different page urls with the different names for the same name and when someone listens to an artist, Last.fm could identify which specific artist is in view by an associated album and/or the user could select from a list of them. Finger-printing would eventually 'intelligently' identify the correct one as well from its database.

    I have the greatest respect for both Dino Kartsonakis who has brought joy into my heart and "Dino" Dean Esposito who helped put a joyful dance in my step. God Bless !

    There's also a 6th Dino - an anime character. Please change your tags to KENN instead if you're listening to Be more (by Cavallone Dino).
