Submitter: Here are two of the four Lawrence Welk biographies in our collection. The full color foldout of the whole cast is my favorite.

Holly: There is a special place in my heart for Lawrence Welk. My dad was a high school band director, and the Lawrence Welk show was shown faithfully in my house every week of my childhood, without fail. (So was Hee-Haw. My dad is “well-rounded” fellow.) I can see having a Lawrence Welk biography (if it still circulates) in a public library, but four is pushing it.

  1. There were a lot of Lawrence Welk questions in the game Trivia Pursuit from the 80’s. My grandparents must have seen ever episode. With out a doubt, they knew every answer to my Dad’s chagrin.

  2. I don’t feel as kindly toward Mr. Welk. While I don’t remember how my parents and grandparents managed it, I found myself somehow forced into watching the show that I found hokey even at a young age. I also remember that Lawrence Welk jokes and parodies were all the rage at school. A one, two, three and turn on the bubble machine.
