This Day in Welk History - September 18, 1965

It was forty-four years ago today that the Lawrence Welk Show aired it's first episode in color on the ABC network!

Now Champagne Music aficionados could see their favorite stars in shades other than black & white.

The episode, aired on location at the Maestro's resort in Escondido, featured the Lennon Sisters and the Blenders at the pool, Peggy Lennon and husband Dick Cathcart sing "You're The Cream In My Coffee" plus we get to see Dee Dee Lennon play a round of golf!

With the advent of color, musical numbers and the wardrobe would be more colorful and spectacular than ever!

Yup, the times are-a-changin'
