    I agree with all the Welk fan moron comments on here. This is real german Heimat music – music to commit mass murder by. Lawrence Welk himself would look great in an SS uniform, sloshing the old Zyklon B around, as like all real germans, he’s got a head like a frozen turkey, that always looks best with a steel Wehrmacht helmet jammed down on top of it. Pity that Nazis like Welk never won WWII – we’d be listening to this cretinous garbage 24/7 now, and It’s a mass atrocity in itself! Zeig Heil!!

    The ’70s were a great decade for music and film, but I think most of us can agree it was a VERY forgettable decade for fashion. LOVE the orange and yellow suits, gentlemen.

    @antzzy1 The show actually started in 1955.

    Adios, Au Revior, Aufweiduschen[sp?] is the songs title. Was it writtern for the series, or was it some old standard that was revived and given new life?
    The earlier Dodge network episodes had a dfferent closing theme and during the end credits, you saw a Dodge Car with bubbles floating all around it.
    Anyone have THAT closing?

    @JamesTKirkCobain This show ran from 1954 to 1983 and it catered to a generation born around the turn of the century, unfortunately, most people of the era are gone and now all we have left are a bunch of spoiled people that have no idea what is like to do without modern conveniences. So when you say bizarre that tells me that you have really no musical culture or have very little insight into the people that helped bring our country to prosperity, now are current generation are ruining it

    I agree!

    @jacksonlefteye
    One slight problem. She’d been dead for two weeks, and you never noticed it.

    @williamwagener
    Those words are so true! My mother met Lawrence Welk at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. Mom was amazed that he was such a down to earth gentleman, of her generation. He was from North Dakota, my mom was from Saskatchewan, Canada; ND and Sask are much the same. And you’re right, we do need a new Lawrence Welk. If anything, he kept the family at home, and together on Sunday nights.
