Funny. My parents used to watch every episode of Lawrence Welk when we were growing up.
I remember him as being MUCH older. LOL
Also, those musicians are pretty good. :-)

LOL, @Ferret/John:  Too funny, if you get my drift.  rofl dancing

 

Ken.

@ Pierre: My parent's had just settled down for the night to watch the "Welk" show the evening of my 28th birthday when my dad had a heart attack, his final one. cry

Here is even an older version of the song. The violin player in the middle is playing a 'Strad'.

Very sorry to hear it Ken.

The recording doesn't do the Strad much justice.violin-student

Lawrence Welk liked his playing so much that he bought him that Strad when he joined the LW show in 1953.

Here's another song on the Strad.

Why can't I find a boss like him. :-)
Lawrence Welk must have been very generous. Wonder what that cost him...
