Lawrence Welk

I watched The Lawrence Welk Show with my folks tonight. Good times were had by all.

When was the last time you sang "On The Street Where You Live"(By Vic Damone) with your dad?

It brought tears to my mom's eyes.

It was on Saturday night, back when my Grandma was babysitting for me. She spoke very little English, and my Lithuainan was quite elementary, but we still managed to chat somehow.

Lithuanian, huh? My Polish great aunt loved that show. She was so sad when he died.

Yes. I much preferred fantasy island which was later on in the night, especially the episode where Roark battles Lucifer.

The Love Boat was also intolerable.

LW was on much earlier in the evening. Grandma and I used to watch Emergency 51 first. Maybe she'd let me watch part of "the Love Boat" later in the evening , but my folks kept me on a very short chain most of the time.

'Emergency 51'...Wow, I'd forgotten about that one! It would be a hoot to see an episode of that today.

My dad enjoyed both Lawrence Welk AND HeeHaw.

When I was a kid, I learned how to change the channel from Lawrence Welk.
It doesn't get more vanilla than that.
