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.

Did You Know?


During a visit to London in January 1974 to appear on The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour (1969), John Wayne caught pneumonia. For a 66-year-old man with one lung this was very serious, and eventually he was coughing so hard that he damaged a valve in his heart. This problem went undetected until March 1978, when he underwent emergency open heart surgery in Boston. Bob Hope delivered a message from the The 50th Annual Academy Awards (1978), saying, "We want you to know Duke, we miss you tonight. We expect you to amble out here in person next year, because there is nobody who can fill John Wayne's boots." According to Loretta Young, that message from Hope made Wayne determined to live long enough to attend the Oscars in 1979. And he did. See more »

DVD? Hello?
9 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

I remember this series when I was a child, but I've only seen clips since then. So many other variety shows are seeing the light of day on DVD, so where, oh where is Glen Campbell's Goodtime Hour? Hello? We are missing out on so many great musical performances! Somebody please release this on DVD! COME ON!

What is the hold up? Is Glen himself uncooperative? Make it happen, you guys! Yes, the comedy was cheesy, but that's what TV was like in the late sixties and early seventies. I miss the wonderfully cheesy variety shows of my youth. Tony Orlando and Dawn had a show, Sonny and Cher had a show, The Smothers Brothers had a show, and Glen Campbell had one.

Let's see em on DVD!
