Tune In: The Lawrence Welk Show

Tune In: The Lawrence Welk Show

It’s a well known fact that I am actually 120 years old; ask anyone who knows me. So when I accidentally came across The Lawrence Welk Show on PBS, I was instantly hooked.

I was channel surfing on Saturday night before getting ready to go to a birthday party at Frisson. The sight of 20 of the whitest men who ever lived in matching yellow dinner jackets on a light blue stage. As the camera zoomed out it just got better and better! Organs! Elderly 1960’s couples dancing! Tap! Beehives! Plaid pants! It was glorious.

I am so inspired to have a 1960’s style dinner party now! They really should bring back shows like this…maybe just for me and my peeps over at the rest home 😉

    The LW show was my *favorite* when I was 5. I loved all the bubbles.

    I am 102 as well. I watched this show with my grandparents every Sunday when I was little. I don’t love it anymore, but I do love Jimmy Stewart, Cary Grant, Audrey Hepburn, Jean Arthur and Gary Cooper movies to this day! 🙂
