America Comprehended: Lawrence Welk

by awindram

LAWRENCE WELK: Late bandleader whose eponymous TV show (musical variety; a format thankfully now moribund) still gets regular repeats on PBS stations who feel little inclination to provide their viewers with content that is informative, entertaining, or relevant. As seen now The Lawrence Welk Show is merely a curiosity; if it wasn’t so earnest it could just about pass itself off as camp fun. Likely to be enjoyed only by those who found Liberace too edgy for their tastes.
