This Day In History - Lawrence Welk

From historychannel.com:
1949 Lawrence Welk's band debuts on High Life Review

On this day in 1949, Lawrence Welk's band begins a two-year stint as the house orchestra for radio show High Life Review. Though often lampooned for his saccharine style, Welk eventually developed an army of loyal fans and hosted one of the longest running musical variety shows in history.

And the world was served musical demerol for many decades.
Not my cup o' tea, but I can't knock the guy. He had quite a following.

"And now we'll hear from the lovely Lemon Sisters..."
