Singer Joe Feeney, who performed for 25 years on the “Lawrence Welk Show,” died on April 16 in Carlsbad, Calif., reports the Associated Press. Mr. Feeney died of emphysema, which his family says he may have contracted it from years of singing in smoky venues. From 1957 to 1982, Mr. Feeney was the featured tenor on the Welk show, which offered easy-listening ”
Champagne music” and family-oriented songs, says the wire service. The shows are still broadcast on public television stations.
