No Welk This Week....It's Pledge Time Again

Found out tonight that there was no Welk in my area was time again for my local PBS station WGTE to run a mini-pledge a-thon, one of the programs was My Music, The Best Of Fifties Pop. The good news was that's the show that had our Mary Lou Metzger co-hosting...

Nice picture eh? I did hear that the featured Welk episode this week was Summer Sounds from 1966...I'll have a review up shortly.

Sad news here in Champagne Land, I found out online that Maxine Grey, who was Lawrence Welk's original Champagne Lady from the mid 1930s passed on less than a month ago, she was 92.

You can read more about it from an article courtesy of the Honolulu Star Bulletin, just CLICK HERE FOR THE OBITUARY
