Vintage Champagne: A Tribute to The Lawrence Welk Show

Oct 26, 2010
7:00 PM PT
Los Angeles


Join many of the original stars of Lawrence Welk’s “Musical Family” to reminisce about one of the longest running variety programs in television history. Every Saturday night from 1955 to 1982, the country enjoyed his hour of well-known popular songs, played by a top-notch orchestra of Big Band–era musicians, sung and danced by a good-looking cast of colorfully costumed singers and dancers. Since then The Lawrence Welk Show has continued to entertain families of many generations on public television. Our guests will tell behind-the-scenes stories about host Welk, whose modest demeanor, slight accent, and obvious discomfort in front of the camera charmed audiences. Rare clips from the series’ rich history will also be screened.
