This week's show, the music makers salute to fine songwriters, Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer. Here's Cissy & Bobby getting things started with the Mercer classic "Goody Goody."

The maestro had Henry Mancini himself as his special guest, and the man behind the music of Pink Panther played two of his hits on the piano, "Days Of Wine And Roses" and "The Sweetheart Tree". We also had Arthur Duncan dancing to "Jeepers Creepers" and Guy & Ralna a great rendition of "All His Children".

There were several great numbers in the show, Gail Farrell and Larry Hooper teamed up at the piano with their rendition of "You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby" in which both looked and sounded cute. Myron Floren played "Charade" on his accordian, and the orchestra had several great instrumentals such as the popular standby, "That Old Black Magic" along with "Laura's Theme."

The girls chorus sang "Send A Little Love My Way" which came from the motion picture Oklahoma Crude, here's our dancers Cissy & Bobby, Jack & Mary Lou adding some dance steps to some nice harmonies followed by Clay Hart with "Hey Porter" and "Moon River" by Joe Feeney.

We also had Anacani and Tanya team up for "Accentuate The Postive" and the whole gang teaming up for the finale with "In The Cool, Cool, Cool Of The Evening"....putting the cork on yet another vintage show filled with music and melodies that is sweet sounds to anyone's ear.

Mary Lou had Bobby Burgess on as her guest to be interviewed, and he talked about how he not just danced but can play the accordian. He also mentioned his days on the Mickey Mouse Club television program which was an ideal breeding ground for what's to come next, The Lawrence Welk Show; plus his family where he and wife Kristi enjoy going out to dance, and he and kids are teaching Southern California how to dance.

Next week I believe is "School Days", see you all later!
