Salute to Perry Como

This week, it's a salute to the music of Perry from September 23, 1978; here's the musical family with a selection of songs that was made famous by "Mr. C"

The gang opens the show up with "Hot Diggity"

Next is Cissy and Bobby in the Pennsylvania State Playpen singing "Papa Loves Mambo".....

....and here's Guy & Ralna with the song "If"

Did you know that Perry Como also recorded a country music song, we'll here's Ava Barber with her own rendition of Mr. C's "Don't Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes"

...and here's Myron Floren at the PAN accordion with "Hoop Dee Doo"

Other fine selections in tonight's show include "Catch A Falling Star" by the Aldridges and Otwells, "More" by Jimmy Roberts, "Ava Maria" by Norma Zimmer and "Beautiful Girl" by Dick Dale.

And there were great instrumentals by the band that include "Till' The End Of Time", "Temptation" and "Round and Round" danced by Arthur Duncan.

So it all makes for a great show on the first Sunday of June!

And being interviewed by Mary Lou this week in the hot seat is the Aldridge Sisters; Sherry and Sheila. They talked about their family's musical family background, how they got on the Lawrence Welk Show and their teaming with the Otwell Twins plus their careers after the show ended.

Speaking of that, Sheila and Sherry are on tour with the Forever Blowing Bubbles concert series with Jim Turner, Ken Delo and Arthur Duncan....making stops in Pennsylvania and Ohio this month, plus they are appearing in Branson at the Welk Resort for the Welk Stars Reunion Show in the first week of September, so be sure to see them! You'll be in for a special treat and then some.

It's getting hot here in until next week, stay cool everyone.
