In 1955, Goldenson found another prime-time prospect on ABC's Los Angeles affiliate, KABC-TV. Lawrence Welk, another of our early shows, was phenomenally successful in a way that has never been duplicated. He and his band established themselves performing live at the LaMonica Ball Room in Santa Monica. Our Los Angeles station, KABC-TV, put him on the air locally at 9 Saturday night. In the summer of 1955 we picked this up for the network.
