This program was the very best in country music entertainment by two folks - Teddy and Doyle Wilburn - who knew how to entertain. Among many other things, this program was responsible for launching the career of Loretta Lynn. She was a regular on the show for it's entire run, and joined the great comedian and banjoist, Harold Morrison (who played banjo on some of Loretta's hits, of which "Blue Kentucky Girl" was one). The great Don Helms was a regular steel player for most of the years that this show was on television, and Hal Rugg played on the rest of the programs when Don was not there. The band also included such greats as Buddy Spicher on fiddle and brothers Lester and Leslie Wilburn who played guitar and bass. I do not recognize the drummer. You may still see these great shows (as of Feb 2006) on the RFD TV channel on satellite. Many great performers from the world of country music have been guests on this show, such as Roy Acuff, Bashful Brother Oswald, Karen Wheeler, Dottie West, Sammi Smith, Dave Dudley, Del Reeves, and many others too numerous to mention. I give it five stars.
