The Lawrence Welk Show

Big Bands (#935)

Lawrence Welk never forgot his roots in the Big Band Era and "Big Bands," hosted by Johnny Zell, was the very special season kickoff in 1978. Johnny's trumpet solos include "Ciribiribin," "When Day Is Done" and "Celery Stalks at Midnight." The band's featured numbers are "Begin the Beguine," "Panama," and "Cumana," and Guy and Ralna sing "Tangerine" as a special tribute to Helen O'Connell and the Jimmy Dorsey Band.
