    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.

    I grew up to the Lawrence Welk show (I'm 36) ... solid family entertainment.

    maybe, but there was some real talent on the show. Bobby and Sissy knew how to dance, like nobody's biz.

    never watched it, but my aunts used to have it on when they baby sat me.

    iirc it was broadcast on sundays, right?

    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.

    saturday makes sense.

    as far as lithuanian, as long as you know labas, geri, and labas, you're good to go. at least those 3 words worked for me when i was there.

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

    I'm sure there's more than one word, but I know dobry.

    was it really that bad?

    I'd cut off your right arm to enjoy a moment like that with my Grandma again.

    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.
