Overlooked Nuggets from Lawrence Welk's TV Treasures

It has pledge week in my viewing area for the last two weeks....and today on WBGU out of Bowling Green, we got to see the classic pledge special Lawrence Welk's TV Treasures.

But here are some TV treasures from the special that didn't make the final cut, so right here....a Welk Musical Family exclusive, more musical memories you didn't get to see.

There's the 1980 episode where Johnny Zell had problems blowing into his trumpet....looks like the fellas played a practical joke on him by stuffing his horn with chewing gum. 
There's also the show from 1969 when a car used in a musical number ran out of gas.....

.....and who can forget a Silver Champagne Special when Bob Lido realized that he's not supposed to put his lunch in the microwave wrapped in tin foil?
And finally, when Tanya was scheduled to do a number with her playing the flute....but since she accidentally left the instrument at home, she had to improvise.

It's all in good, clean fun....

Keep a song in your heart and enjoy the week ahead!
