Big Band Days
the lawrence welk show

Lawrence has fun tracking down the origin of contemporary songs adapted from the classics. In the opening Lawrence asks "What do "Mack The Knife", "Our Love", and Hot Diggity, Dog Ziggity" have in common?" The answer is - all of them were originally classical compositions. As the show proceeds, Lawrence explain the origins of each song including "Baubles, Bangles, and Beads" and "I'm Always Chasing Rainbows".
