On Episode 51 of the Sit Down, Jeff and Blackjack delve into the life of Bonanno boss Vinny Gorgeous Basciano. Vinny grew up in Yonkers and started being mentored by mobsters in his teens ultimately becoming a bookmaker and making his ascent as an earner and tough guy in the family. He gained the respect of a Bronx capo then ultimately Joe Massino. In the end, after Massinos arrest, he would make boss but his career would be derailed and he'd have to deal with a sordid list of murders and treachery from a surprising bedfellow. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- PLEASE give us a follow on socials!
