- Episode Description
One of the most dramatic patriotic music specials ever produced for public television, will be presented nationally in March, 2003. This all-new, two-hour PBS special pays a musical tribute to America's freedoms, its leaders and its veterans, and to the patriotism Lawrence Welk held dear as part of the classic American success story of his life. The premiere of this special marks the 100th birthday of Lawrence Welk, who died in May, 1992. Because his lifetime spanned most of the 20th century, "Lawrence Welk: God Bless America" looks at our nation's history through the eyes and experiences of this bandleader who achieved "The American Dream." "Lawrence Welk: God Bless America" features 18 stars from the Welk Musical Family, including Anacani, Elaine Balden, Bobby Burgess, Jo Ann Castle, Henry Cuesta, Dick Dale, Ralna English, Joe Feeney, Myron Floren, Guy Hovis, Jack Imel, The Lennon Sisters, Mary Lou Metzger, Tom Netherton, Bob Ralston and Norma Zimmer.
