If you love the music of the great swing bands - songs like Tommy Dorsey's "I'll Never Smile Again," Woody Herman's "Woodchopper's Ball, " or "American Patrol" and "Tuxedo Junction" by Glenn Miller, you'll love Lawrence Welk's Salute to the Swing Bands from 1979. Ken Delo sings Jimmy Dorsey's "So Rare" and the always beautiful Anacani sings "Amapola". From "Sophisticated Lady" to the "Original Boogie Woogie" - there's something for everyone on this show filled with the great swing music from the Big Band Era.

Lawrence Welk's Premiere Show (Episode #1301)

KQED Plus: Sat, Sep 8, 2012 -- 7:00 PM

"Say It With Music" opens the 25th season of The Lawrence Welk Show on Public Television. It was also his very first national television broadcast. Alice Lon sings "Love Me Or Leave Me", Larry Hooper delights with his signature song "Oh Happy Day", Rocky Rockwell charms us with "I Love Girls", and since it wouldn't be a Welk show without a polka, "The Clarinet Polka" fits the bill perfectly. Don't miss the show that started it all.
