    This is not recommended music to listen to while on LSD

    1955!… Amazing!.. That’s just 10 years after the collapse of the Third Reich, when Welk fled to Strasburg, North Dakota, to be hidden with other nazi war-criminals who found refuge in America’s “Little Germany”.
    If you check-out the 2nd left trumpet player, I think I recognize Oberführer Klaus Schtinkel of the Waffen SS—”The Butcher of Bialystok”—who was later extradited to Israel and hung for his appalling crimes.
    Incredible & historically important footage – thanks so much for posting!

    I watched the Lawrence Welk Show with my family when I was little. I loved it then, and almost 60 years later I still do!

    There is no one that enjoyed his work or craft as much as the great Lawrence Welk, just look at his face while he is playing, he was truly a one of a kind genius!

    @mpgxprs —True or False–Lawrence Welk, for allhis good business ans marketing sense, was not all that great a musician? Maybe he never learned the bass side of the accordion all that well, but was able to “wing it” on the keyboard? What do you think?
