Wunnerful, Wunnerful! The man, his music, and this book! June 28 2000
By Betty J. Ross - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wunnerful, Wunnerful! The Autobiography of Lawrence Welk by Lawrence Welk with Bernice McGeehan
This excellent book made me a Lawrence Welk fan. Until I read his autobiography I considered Welk's music more suited to my mother's taste. I have changed my mind. I picked up my copy at a yard sale and bought it mainly because it had the signature of the author scrawled across the title page. I like biographies and autobiographies, and when I settled down to read this one, I was well rewarded for my treasure hunt. Threaded throughout this book are examples of integrity and thoughtfulness that show Lawrence Welk to be an outstanding showman, a hard worker, a devoted family man, a man of faith, and basically a decent human being. His humility in the face of success and his concern for his musical family made him someone to be admired. From the first $400 accordion that cost him four years work on his parents' farm to the fleet of Rolls Royces that graced his final years, it was a long, hard road. His thick accent became his trademark, along with his "Champagne Music" that entertained so many of his fans. But his fans were more than just fans, they were his friends. That is unusual in the world of entertainment, but then he was an unusual man, and this is an unusual book. I recommend it highly.

This is a find! Aug. 30 2010

For the Welk-fan, this book with Welk family photos is terrific. At very least, its a conversation piece for a younger generation. If you remember saturday night watching Lawrence when Dodge or Geritol was his sponser - this is for you!

My mother grew up watching him and still watches his show. She wanted to learn more about him and she likes this book since it gives a lot more information on him. The copy we received was signed and in excellent condition.
