Biography | show moreshow less
LAWRENCE WELK (1903-1992) debuted with his band as a summer replacement on ABC in 1955, the weekly program became one of the network's most popular variety shows and Welk's "ah-one and ah-two" and "wunnerful, wunnerful" became catchwords. Between 1956 and 1963, Welk recorded ten Top 10 albums and had a No. 1 hit with "Calcutta" in 1961. After the show was cancelled by ABC, it became equally successful in syndication (1971-1982). Beginning in 1987, five years after Welk retired, reruns of his "champagne music" became a popular staple of public television, and after Welk's death, his band continued to perform at the Champagne Music Theater in Branson, Missouri.
