The Welk 500

Back in the spring of 1965, a television milestone was established over at ABC,

The Lawrence Welk Show aired it's 500th show that Saturday night!

Here are a few highlights from that milestone and memory,

The Maestro opens the show with his trusty accordian....

Here's the entire Lennon family together for a hootnanny!

Joe Livoti demonstrating his skills as a violin concertmaster....

And Larry Hooper swinging into high with Lawrence watching with glee.

By next season, the show would make the move to color.....and many many more milestones and memories would made!
