The Lawrence Welk Show
OETA - The Oklahoma Network, the statewide public television network with headquarters located in Oklahoma City, OK, produces the show for national distribution. The “wraparounds” (host segments featuring the Welk Stars) are taped every other year and feature original members from “The Lawrence Welk Show” introducing that week’s featured show. The stars bring the viewer up-to-date on their lives, their careers, etc. during these “wraparounds.”
Lawrence Welk Precious Memories is a two-hour PBS special that abounds with spiritual hymns, inspirational songs and gospel medleys reminding viewers of their shared family values based on loving and heartfelt beliefs. This nostalgic special will lift your spirits, heal your heart and take you into the safe haven of your past with promises for a brighter tomorrow.
This PBS special was taped before a LIVE audience at the Welk Resort Theatre in Branson, Missouri in early September, 2004. The audience was thrilled by the songs of faith and responded with numerous standing ovations.
