I grew up in Grove Park in the ‘50s & attended the Grove often. Richie Welch was a classmate at Lena H. Cox school. Every year he invited the class to a special movie. In the 5th grade, we went to see Oklahoma!. All the boys were excited about seeing a Western. Boy, were disappointed when they broke into song.

The Welch’s had another son, Cecil, who is a trumpet player and toured for 18 years with Henry Mancini and is still in active in the ATL music scene.
