"America at Play"
Host: Gail Farrell
ORIGINAL AIR DATE: April 10, 1976

"America at Play," this week's Lawrence Welk Show, is hosted by Gail Farrell,
who "plays" in both senses of the word: having fun with her family and sitting
at the piano. The program opens with "Ain't We Got Fun" and includes
goodtime songs such as the show's finale, "Take Me Out To the Ball Game"
and "Bicycle Built for Two" sung by Gail, Sandi and Mary Lou. In a host
segment, Gail plays and sings one of her own songs, "His Is."
