Mary Lou will talk with Susan about her beginnings in “the business” at the age of just 7 yrs old. Her roles in musicals such as The Music Man - children’s television - and how she met Lawrence Welk and her memories of Mr. Welk and the show. She will also discuss her travels around the country singing the praises of Public Television, a cause very dear to her heart.
After listening to Mary Lou and Susan talk, it is obvious that Mr. Welk made a great decision in having Mary Lou Metzger join his musical family. It is also easy to hear why she is loved by her fans and fellow entertainers.
This is a show to enjoy - pull up a chair and listen in to the wonderful remembrances that Mary Lou has to share with Susan McCray and all of us on Tuesday evening, Dec. 8th at 6:30 p.m. pacific / 9:30 p.m. eastern on KSAV.org ...
