Lawrence Welk Classic Episodes, Vol. 1-4
DVD ($34.98)

Spanning four decades, the longest-running variety show on television filled American living rooms with bubbly “champagne music” from 1951 to 1982. This four-disc set celebrates many of the program’s memorable moments and classic performances of popular music standards, polkas and novelty songs, including a special salute to U.S. veterans, a Mardi Gras celebration and other time-capsule treasures, all hosted by the genial bandleader from North Dakota who got his start with a mail-order accordion.
