That name rings a bell Debbie, but I can't remember anything they had.

I guess you would consider them the generic brand, along with the Lennon Sister. I will correct myself however, they were the King Family. Old Lawrence Welk staples.

I never cared much for Lawrence Welk, so I didn't watch him. But the King family does sound familiar.

Ah....Lawrence Welk---My Idol....:-)

Ed,

Even though I was just a kid then--I remember watching Lawrence Welk--I had a crush on the clarinet player in the orchestra who always did solos. Ya. I know--I was a geeky kid. HAHAHA. What about the Pointer Sisters?

Hmmmm, I wonder if that might have been a very young Pete Fountain?

It Was This Guy....

Ed,

I just went and did a net search to see if there were some younger pics of Fountain--and came across the actual clarinet player I was thinking of: Henry Cuestra! I also saw some other people from that Welk show like Tom Netherton and Anacani.

I was also recalling the Hee Haw program: Grandpa Jones (What's for Supper?), Buck Owens, Roy What's His Name. Around 1979 my Dad bought a cassette tape of the Grand Ol' Opry (1926-1974)...and I took to that music in a big way. I still enjoy listening to Lonzo & Oscar's "I'm My Own Grandpa" and The Carter Family's "I'm Thinking Tonight Of My Blue Eyes" and Kitty Wells "How Far Is Heaven"....I have to get this on CD before the cassette is truly worn out!

Cheers,

Jenny

I think that would be Roy Clark, a guy who could play just about anything.

"I'm my own grandpa"? There aren't many of us who remember that one.

How About Grandpa Jones' "Old Blue"

Ed,

Well..I had a great time this evening (took at break from Photoshopping) and listened to music clips for various genres at the Amazon.com site. It doesn't look like I can get the exact Grand Ole Opry album (or cassette) on CD--but there are some other Grand Opry collections. How about Johnnie & Jack's "Ashes of Love" and Minnie Pearl's "Jealous Hearted Me"--she could sure play the piano!!!

I love all music except extreme punk and acid rock. You should have seen my 11 year old daughter roll her eyes upwards this evening when I played all of Donny and Marie's music clips--plus Shaun Cassidy's Do Run Run Rin song! She's amazed that some of the music she finds sorta acceptable debut around the time of her birth! ;-)

My mainstay is Cecila Bartoli, Andrea Bocelli, The Braxton Brothers (smooth jazz), Boney James, Oleta Adams, Eva Cassidy, James Taylor...and of course my little bit of Grand Ole Opry! Hee-Haw!

Cheers,

Jenny
