We always watched Lawrence Welk at Grandma and Aunt Pegs if it was on.Dad and Mom always had this on at home too. I sat silent, watching Mr. Welk conducting his show. I now cherish that time I had with my family.
Lawrence Welk was born March 11, 1903 in Strasburg, North Dakota. He played the accordion and formed two musical groups that opened for bands and orchestras in the Midwest. His TV show, The Lawrence Welk Show, which featured band music with vocalists, dancers, and instrumental soloists, became a huge success. The show was dropped by the network, but he continued it as Memories with Lawrence Welk.
