Salute to Bing Crosby

This week, it's a musical salute to Bing Crosby. Originally aired back on January 14, 1978, here are some of the highlights from the show.

Here's Anacani singing "South America, Take It Away!"

Next up, the trio of Gail, Sandi and Mary Lou, our stars from Tuesday's Bear Creek concert, going outta space with "Swinging On A Star"

Time to dance with Cissy and Bobby as the prove that "Anything Goes"....

On that week's show, Myron Floren is out on tour, so we meet Joey Schmidt for the first time after playing the "Happy Yodeler Polka"

And here's Ava Barber with a terrific rendition of "San Antonio Rose"

This week's show was excellent! Other great numbers included were "Moonlight Becomes You" by Tom Netherton, "True Love" by Norma Zimmer and Jimmy Roberts, "I'm An Old Cowhand" featuring Jack Imel and Mary Lou Metzger as well as "Mississippi Mud" featuring Larry Hooper and the Welk show's Barber Shop Quartet.

And being interviewed this week by Mary Lou is the lovely Anacani. She talked about part of her career when she was a star on Latin American television, her role in the movie "Zoot Suit" and her own family.

Plus, you can see Anacani as well as many other of your favorites in the Welk Stars Reunion Show held at Branson's Welk Resort the first week of September. I know that I am excited about it!

Until next week's show.....take care and stay cool everyone.
