“Farm Show"

Host:  Mary Lou Metzger with guest Dick Dale

The Welk Stars have fun pretending they’re down on the farm as they open this show with “Surrey with the Fringe on Top.” The band plays “Goofus,” Guy Hovis does a nice “Country Boy,” Clay Hart sings “Grazin’ in Greener Pastures,” Sandi and Sally get together for “Tumbling Tumbleweeds” and Guy & Ralna sing one of their favorite hymns, “In the Garden.”
