RIP.  Such a talented man.  We watched his show every Saturday night & our kids loved it too.  We went to Branson many times with our dc and saw him in his live show numerous times.  He had a nice gift shop and our ds and dd bought the cutest Hee Haw t-shirts.  The first time that our ds wore his shirt, it was raining when we came out of our local library & he slipped on the sidewalk and his new t 👕👕👕was in shreds.  He was about 7years old.  My family always watched LW too.  Myron Floren was my favorite.

twinny,

 

What a blast from the past!  I haven't read or heard Myron Floren's name in decades.  Thank you for mentioning him.

 

The Lennon Sisters stayed a bit longer in the public eye, perhaps because they were younger than the other regulars.

It seems like only yesterday that I posted on this site Roy Clark singing "Yesterday When I Was Young," which was written by Charles Aznavour.  I posted Clark's rendition when Aznavour passed away on October 1.

 

Enjoy the splendor and beauty of Roy Clark's tender rendition:

Saw him on an old Beverly Hillbillies episode and wondered if he was alive. Roy was quite a musical talent.

 

I just listened to the video of him singing "Yesterday When I Was Young". It made me think of someone else who recently passed and lived life only for himself - to me, it was a life wasted.

I saw Roy Clark live many years ago

What a powerful entertainer.

I'm not much of a country music fan, but you didn't have to like country music to enjoy him as an entertainer.

 

RIP

Goldie76,  We went to the Lawrence Welk theater & got to see all of the Lennon Sister's & Jo Ann Castle.  I think that the LW Theater is still there, but who knows who is performing there now.

When his name would be mentioned, I always thought of this song.  It was his and his alone.  Such a beautifull and haunting melody.  Thanks so much for sharing.  I've book marked it to play again and again and again and.....
