    ABC Television became a color network in September 1965, converting the Hollywood Palace Theater as their first West Coast "color-video" studio facility. At the end of the second show taping-season, the studio underwent major electronic conversion from May through August, 1965. The "Lawence Welk Show" was moved from the Talmadge-Prospect ABC TV main lot to the Hollywood Palace Theater in September, 1965 to June 1966. The week schedule divided, allowing the Welk Show to set-up, rehearse and tape on Tuesday. The Hollywood Palace maintained their regular load-in, rehearsal and taping schedule, Saturday afternoon (Dress) and evening (Show) taping. The Welk Show had to reduce their orchestra size for the stage footprint. When Lawence Welk was given the orchestra layout and plan, with a pencil, he drew a line on the right side of the orchestra, saying "get rid of them!" During this Winter-Spring period, ABC converted electronic color conversion on the main lot "Welk Stage" and other stage facilities. Welk and his production returned to the main lot, remaining on his "Welk Stage E" until ABC canceled the series. The Welk Production Syndication remained on the main lot, until they were moved back to the Hollywood Palace stage. The Welk Show then moved to CBS Television City, to tape their syndicated series, ending and closing down taping of their variety show. The commercials during this period were in black and white. Only Monsanto Commercials were filmed in color. Advertisers did not catch up with the color transition for two years.

    Les Brown was the orchestra leader for the first season (1964-1965). Nick Vanoff, having worked with Mitchell Ayers on the "Perry Como Show" in New York, hired Mitchell as the Hollywood Palace orchestra leader for the following seasons of shows (1965-1969). During the summer 1969 hiatus of the Hollywood Palace TV show, Mitchell Ayers was in Las Vegas working with Connie Stevens' Landmark Hotel nightclub appearance. On a mid-evening, September 5, 1969, crossing the Las Vegas Strip in front of the Landmark Hotel, Ayers was struck and killed by a vehicle. Mitchell Ayers' conducting position was replaced by Nick Pietro for the final season 1969-1970.

    A few of the Las Vegas comedians, appearing on the Hollywood Palace, required the Art Director to adjust or camouflage a prop used in their routine. One instance was a comedian, who sat at a grand piano flipping through the sheet music binder on the piano's music rack. Inserted, between the sheet music pages, were Playboy Magazine center folds, featuring naked centerfold models. To comply with the Network Broadcast Standards and Practices-Compliances, between dress rehearsal and the air show, the assistant art director made paper doll clothes for each model-photograph, covering the naked women with clothing and bathing suits.
