Mancini and Mercer.....they're cops!

Sounds like a popular police show....but it's not, Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer are two very popular and talented musicians and songwriters in American music.

And on this episode of the Lawrence Welk Show from November 10, 1973...the Maestro and his music makers pay a salute to their work, so here are some highlights.

Here's Henry himself being welcomed by Lawrence on the show....

Next is Ralna English and Guy Hovis singing "All His Children".....

Over to the studio is the Curt Ramsey 7 with Sandi Griffiths on lead vocals singing "Dream"..... here's the girls singing "Send A Little Love My Way" from the movie "Oklahoma Crude"....

....and finally here's the gang with Henry at the piano with the number "Sweetheart Tree."

That's all this time week is a Silver Champagne Special titled "Music, Music, Music."

Just wish all you dads out there...including mine....a very Happy Fathers Day!
