The Lawrence Welk Show

The Lennon Sisters: Easy to Remember (#612)

Host: The Lennon Sisters
They were the darlings of mid-fifties television, pony-tailed girls-next-door, in puff-sleeved dresses and crinoline petticoats, singing close harmonies every Saturday night on 'The Lawrence Welk Show.' From their very first performance on Christmas Eve, 1955, the country 'adopted' the little girls from Venice, California, and The Lennon Sisters became a part of the American tradition of child stars, a path that can be filled with equal measure of delight and despair. 'The Lennon Sisters: Easy to Remember' focuses on the 'delight' of early years, with vintage footage of 'The Lawrence Welk Show.' Hosted by The Lennon Sisters themselves, this program re-introduces Dianne, Peggy, Kathy, and Janet, still wholesomly attractive and unpretentious women, who enjoy a genuinely close family relationship. Hosting chores are done from a variety of 'old haunts' and homeplaces: the Santa Monica Pier and beach, their large Victorian family home, St. Monica's High School and a recording studio.
