Ah-One, Ah-Two! Life With My Musical Family
Ah-One Ah-Two Life With My Musical Family Author:Lawrence Welk with Bernice McGeehan This book is about my Musica Family. When the thought first came to me to do a book about our orchestra and how it operates, I decided to tell the whole story, the bad as well as the good; to take you backstage and let you see exactly the kind of people we are. In my first book, "Wunnerful, Wunnerful!" I talked about my own life. This second ... more »book is about the people who make up the "family" which has become such a big part of my life.
When I finished the book, however, I was a little worried that maybe I had talked too much! But I spoke with various members of our group, and every one of them gave me his blessing and allowed me to go ahead with it, even though I had revealed many of the trouble spots and heartaches which have plagued us over the years. You will find, as you read this that we are not perfect human beings who never make mistakes. We are human, just as you are, and we falter and fall time and again.
But I think you will also find, as I know in my heart, that the folks in our Musical Family are the ost talented, loyal, and cooperative to be found anywhere I have only deep gratitude for the wonderful job they have done for me.
I am, of course, an exremely lucky man. I have not only my own woderful family, my wife, children, and grandchildren, but also my wonderful Musical Family, and the family of fans and friends who have supported us so loyally over the years.
