Champagne Book of the Month Club: You're Never Too Young

It's time for us Welk fans to spring into March with this month's edition of the Book of the Month Club!

And today, we'll profile You're Never Too Young

This installment of the famed Welk-McGeehan collaboration was first published in 1981. In it, the Maestro shares his personal secrets for finding the fountain of youth, and they are quite attainable.

Here's one of them.....dancing! Which does not come of as a surprise.

Also in this book, he talks about how he became an actor, in part of appearing in a documentary movie of his life made for his Welk Escondido Resort's newest addition, a theater and a museum.

Of course, he gives an update on his Musical Family, most notably how the Mixed Trio of Gail Farrell, Ron Anderson and Michael Redman became a reality.

There's also a story of the Champagne Music Makers taking on Las Vegas when they were booked at the MGM Grand Hotel and with that the success and pitfalls from that experience.

Towards the end of the book, Lawrence explains about the importance of friendships in life and examines his friends alphabetically from A-Z.

Personally, I think this book is delightful and inspiring. His life lessons featured can apply to anyone and it really brings new meaning to the phrase "Keep a song in your heart"

I recommend You're Never Too Young with my rating of Five Champagne Glasses.
