    Lawrence Welk, I use to watch that show many years ago with my parents when I was knee high to a grasshopper and I was the remote control turning the rotary channel selector. I always liked the song, brings back memories Ives!

    In my area at the time.
    Most of the uhf channels where the same as the others, but in Spanish.
    I grew up in the city of industry/ La Puente area, the San Gabriel Valley

    That song has been around for a very long time. Originally written by Stan Jones and sung by Vaughn Monroe. Lots of people covered it including the late and great Johnny Cash.
    One of my all time favorite songs. Amy Dad who was a guitarist used to play it and I learned it from him.
    Thanks for posting!!!

    remember when ONTV took over 52 & SelecTV took over 22, & were always semi-scrambled? You could watch porn on it, but, the image was like a strong RF interference jacking it up...

    I pretty much hated the Lawrence Welk Show, but occasionally they did something cool. Like that.
