I enjoy the Lawrence Welk reruns of the syndicated archives by OETV on PBS. I didn't watch it when I was young. Tonight I watched the 1967 salute to the Indy 500, recreated in 2004. "Norma Zimmer, features a special salute to the “Indianapolis 500”, the exciting and popular auto race. The show opens with some of the cast driving around in little cars, singing “Indiana” and then bounces along the road with “Tico,Tico” by Myron Floren. The Lennon Sisters sing “There’s A Kind Of Hush” and Norma joins Jim Roberts to sing “Make Believe”, the classic duet from “Showboat”." Great music. Norma Zimmer died in 2011.
