Jo-Ann Castle first appeared as a solo act, then later as an occasional duo with Myron Floren.
She had an effervescent style and personality, quite different from Myron's.
Rumor has it, Myron felt threatened by her accordion skills and stage presence, and told Lawrence in no uncertain terms, that Jo-Ann would not be a featured accordionist on the show.
Lawrence sided with his long-time friend and performer Myron and Jo-Ann became the rag-time piano player on the show.
An enjoyable video of Jo-Ann playing Get Happy, even if your not a fan of Lawrence Welk.
