Maybe it is a yerning for America of old, or a escape from today's music, but early on Sunday mornings in the Winter, I enjoy watching Lawrence Welk videos on youtube. If this was summer, I would be outside doing something before church.
(March 11, 1903 – May 17, 1992) was an American accordionist
, bandleader, and television impresario
, who hosted the The Lawrence Welk Show
from 1951 to 1982. His style came to be known as "champagne music" to his radio, television, and live-performance audiences.
Welk was born in the German-speaking community of Strasburg, North Dakota
. He was sixth of the eight children of Ludwig and Christiana (née Schwahn) Welk, Roman Catholic ethnic Germans
who emigrated in 1892 from Odessa
, Russian Empire
Maybe some of us long for our youth, or a time of more "work hard and then relax some". I don't know, but I do enjoy Mr. Welk's shows on youtube. A little piece of positiveness, rest and relaxation in today's world.
