Lennon Sisters are 'Naturals' as singers.  These four teen-agers have had no formal musical training and can't even read music.  Yet their voices blend perfectly and they have attracted many fans on the Lawrence Welk programs over ABC-WCPO-TV Saturday at 9 p.m. and Monday at 9:30 p.m.  Lawrence Welk, Jr. used to date Dianne Lennon, the oldest [b.1939] and he heard the girls sing around their home.  So, he pesticated [sic] his father into giving them a chance.  Now they are regulars.

*The Cincinnati Times-Star was an afternoon paper, absorbed in 1958 by the Cincinnati Post.  According to Wikipedia, The Cincinnati Times-Star first published on June 15, 1880, when the Spirit of the Times (founded in 1840) and the Cincinnati Daily Star (founded in 1872) merged. The combined papers would be published under the name The Cincinnati Post and Times-Star until December 31, 1974; afterward it was simply The Cincinnati Post.
