Songs From The Classics

Here's another classic Welk episode for you....this week it's Songs From The Classics from March 8, 1980.

Without further delay.....let's go the highlights!

First, here's Guy & Ralna singing the "Song of Love".

Next, we have Bobby & Elaine dance to the sounds of the Tales From the Vienna Woods......

.....not to be outdone by Myron Floren and the Dance of the Comedians on the accordion.

Here's Dick Dale singing "Till The End Of Time" with Bob Smale at piano and Ernie Ehrhardt at cello.

And now we focus on the girls chorus as they provide vocals to "Our Love"

Other fine numbers include "Baubles, Bangles and Beads" by Gail, Sandi and Mary Lou as well as Anacani singing "Guadalajara". We also had Ken Delo with "Mack The Knife", the Aldridges and Otwells with "Hot Diggity" and great instrumentals such as the 1812 Overture, The Breeze And I and Malaguena.

And to sum up this show....I shall proclaim, "Bravo, Bravo!"

This week, Jim Turner takes his turn on Mary Lou's hot seat....he talks about being raised in a musical family of his own, plus his time on Broadway as part of the original production of "Jesus Christ Superstar"....and how he met his wife Terri.

As for next week, it's a Salute To Perry Como followed by Mary Lou's interview with the Aldridge Sisters. Can't wait for that one!

See you all next week until then....
