Lawrence Welk the Third

Today is the birthday of Lawrence Welk the Third, the Maestro's grandson and also Tanya's and Larry Welk Jr's firstborn!

Here's Larry as a kid from the 1974 Christmas special....

And here's Larry, all grown up, with his pop co-hosting the wraparounds from one of the Welk shows shown on public television!

Today, Larry the Third is very successful in his own right....he is Chief Pilot and reporter for KCBS and KCAL TV in Los Angeles where he has won two Emmys for his work, he is also a solid family man...married with kids of his own!

Happy Birthday Larry.....check out his profile from the KCBS Channel 2 wepage.

I am trying to reach the Welk family for advice and direction on locating the videos of the show. My brother was on this wonderful show in the "Little Band", and we would love to be able to view and/or obtain copies of his shows when this Little Band and he (as pianist) was featured. Season 4, episode 29. Any advice or help from anyone is much appreciated!!!
