Storyline

Former session guitarist Glen Campbell, who had shot to fame following a series of hit singles including "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" and "Gentle On My Mind", hosted this easy-going musical variety series that aired on Sunday evenings on CBS. From Delight, Arkansas, Campbell was very congenial, and performed most of his hits when he wasn't picking his guitar or engaging in comedy sketches with his guest stars.

The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour was the country music answer to The Ed Sullivan Show and The Flip Wilson Show. Glen was a regular at first on The Smothers Brothers Show and was tapped to be a Summetime replacement for them on a show called The Summer Brothers Smothers Show. Well that Summetime gig turned into said Goodtime Hour and from 1969 to 1972 Glen made Goodtime TV History. One of his constant regulars was "The Guitar Man" himself Jerry Reed. In the General Store Segment of the show Glen Jerry and a banjo picker named Larry would jam out with female backup singers usually to the top hit of the day. Other performers included Ray Charles, Cher, Bobbie Gentry, Seals and Crofts, Neil Diamond, Three Dog Night, and Rick Nelson.

One of the most memorable of episodes was the night "The Duke" himself John Wayne showed up. This was a promotional tie in for the movie "True Grit" which starred John Wayne, Glen Campbell and Kim Darby. All good things as usual came to an end and The Goodtime Hour was canceled in 72 and relegated to the vaults of CBS TV. Only recently has the series been given an a double look interest. CMT did a small but compiled version of the show showing only the best of the show and not the complete seasons. CMT filmed opening intro segments with country superstar Keith Urban, himself a Campbell fan ! Currently there has been a few minor video releases of the show on VHS and DVD as of late and it is very doubtful if the complete seasons will ever be made available to the general public on DVD Box Set or the HD Formatted Blu Ray Disc due to political red tape wrangling over copyright royalties to every song ever sang on the show.
