Ah-One, Ah-Two: Life with My Musical Family Welk with McGeehan 1974 My America, Your America Welk with McGeehan 1976 Submitter: Here are two of the four Lawrence Welk biographies in our collection. The full color foldout of the whole cast
A Television Studio
Forget the TV studio, who’s the groovy band playing? Looks like a set from some of those variety shows of the 1970s. For 1977, this was probably a good choice for a juvenile nonfiction collection, 2016 probably not so much.
The Truth About Fonzie
From the Happy Days Files, here is the definitive work about the Fonz. Happy Days was a family favorite back when I was a teenager.

Submitter: Wow. Why was this book in my library? I understand that teens and preteens enjoy media and like to look at magazines or websites about their favorite stars, but I’m pretty sure none of my students is crushing on William Shatner. Yikes.
Holly: Kids today probably don’t even know what Baretta, the Six Million Dollar Man, and Welcome Back Kotter are. Their loss! TV was so much better in the 70s and 80s…but alas, those days are over. Also, this book is in horrible condition.
The Mod Squad Assignment: The Hideout Deming 1970 Baby boomers, I know you are with me on this blast from the past. Mod Squad was the COOLEST show when I was a kid. I snatched this up in a sale
