    WOW !! Roy could play anything with strings it seemed. As much as I hated being forced to watch Hee Haw, looking back there were GREAT skits and performers.

    R.I.P. to a great musician

    RIP Mr Clark
    So, are you willing to put forth a little effort or are you happy sitting in your skeptical poo pile?

    My Dad would laugh his kiester off at Hee Haw. Then fire up some of his rekkids and we would listen for hours. Good times!

    RIP Roy. He was one of the few, maybe the only, CW performer to guest host the Tonight Show when Carson was not on.

    I see Gailard Sartain in that image. I worked on a movie ("Spitfire Grill") with him. I remembered him from "Hee-Haw" and he told me several funny anecdotes about being on that show. Here's the best:

    Junior Samples could not read when the show first went on the air, so he struggled with cue cards, trying to read his dialog. After a while, he learned how to read somewhat, so the crew would mess with him. They would write gibberish on the cue cards and Junior would still struggle to read them. Apparently there are loads of incidences where he can be seen staring at the cards/camera, all perplexed, that made it onto the final cut of the episodes, particularly the BR-549 skits. :p

    When I was a kid Family would pop popcorn and we had RC colas and watch Lawrence Welk show and then Hee Haw. Suffered thru LW show to thoroughly enjoy Hew Haw. RIP. D

    For the entire first half of the 1970s, we only got ONE channel, our local CBS affiliate. So, we were used to watching whatever was on. I got a kick out of watching "Hee-Haw", totally unaware that it was country satire. I just thought it was a regular show, like "The Carol Burnett Show". :p

    As for "The Lawrence Welk Show", there was something about that show that gave me the same feeling of dread one would get watching JFKs motorcade make it's way towards Dealy Plaza. To quote Pink Floyd: A "creeping malaise". HAHAHAHAHA

    Hey, ol' Larry was hip before his time -- and an analog kinda guy.
    Here he is, from the cover of Radio Electronics, spinnin' hot wax in his DeSoto.

    Ahem. On topic. Roy Clark was a great entertainer and a great guitarist. At least for a while, he had a home near Annapolis, MD (if memory serves, which is less and less the case, all the time).

    Funny Mr. Fox... I kinda pictured you as a Lawrence Welk kind of guy. Tom Jones and Laugh In were way to hip for you. :p

    Beat me to it. That performance really blew people away, and rightly so.
    Roy was just a little more than your 'typical rube'
    I refuse to argue with idiots, because people can't tell the DIFFERENCE!
