Hello. Long time fan, new to the forum. I just bought a 1946 Radiola radio from a man who got it from a Lawrence Welk Orchestra member's estate sale. He doesn't recall the name. He got it in Yucaipa, CA July 2012. All he remembers is the person was married, no kids and had a big white Cadillac. Any help would be great! Thanks!! CH

Wish I knew the name of the person you are looking for, Chruck.
That had to have been around the time that Lawrence was finishing his Columbia/Vocalion contract and was getting ready to head to the Midwest to be the head bandleader at Chicago's Trianon Ballroom and record steadily for Mercury Records for about four years or so before he really hit the big time over at Coral.
I will check band personnel when I have the time. Congradulations on your super find, Merry Christmas, and WELKCOME!!
