Salute To Roses

Time to head to your local florist, cause' this week's show is all about roses and here's the Champagne Music Makers starting it all off with "Everything Is Coming Up Roses."

The show, first blossomed on TV back in June 1971, has alot of rose songs. such as "Rambling Rose" by Clay Hart, Primrose Lane by Guy & Ralna, Mary Lou Metzger and Bob Lido with "San Antonio Rose" complete with Hotsy Totsy Boys and Ken Delo singing "Red Roses For A Blue Lady."

If any of you guys don't like are some more roses...LOL!

Bobby & Cissy dance to a nice instrumental of Henry Mancini's "Days Of Wine And Roses", Myron Floren plays a rousing "Yellow Rose Of Texas" complete with our two favorite dancers cutting an rug the size of Tyler (Texas that is)....oh and did you know that Tyler, TX is a mecca for roses in the USA, you learn something new everyday.

We also have Sandi & Sally singing Lynn Anderson's uber-hit "I Never Promised You A Rose Garden", and below we have Gail and Dale (Gail Farrell and Dick Dale) singing "One Dozen Roses" to close out the show.

All in all....a very "rosy" show, perfect for any thorn birds!

Mary Lou this week interviews Ralna English, one of the more engaging interviews of the season with the Texas Rose....just keeping in theme this week....talking about her start in singing from Haskell, TX...her places such as Six Flags, The Horn and eventually the Lawrence Welk Show. She also chats about her daughter Julie, now a teacher, living in Arizona (Go Cardinals!) and touring on the road with Guy Hovis, who suprises everyone by making an appearance on camera.

See you all guys next week....and always keep a song in your heart!
