    Ah, ya missed out then. This video has nothing to do with jazz anyway. It does feature some great guitar playing and an excellent band, even if the whole package is typical LW squareness.

    Welk hired excellent musicians, including some top jazz players. Bob Havens, Peanuts Hucko, and others were with Welk over the years. Watching just required sitting through lots of schlock waiting for the jazz number, but it was generally worth it to me, because there wasn't much, if any, jazz on network TV.

    I like the show. I bet it was a lot of fun to play in a big band like that.
