The Lawrence Welk Show was TV’s best party—until it wasn’t

We always watched Lawrence Welk at Grandma and Aunt Pegs if it was on.Dad and Mom always had this on at home too. I sat silent, watching Mr. Welk conducting his show. I now cherish that time I had with my family.

My grandmother would watch this while I sat at her kitchen table eating her warm cornbread....
