I watched this ep of "The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour" in his memory
When I found out Glen Campbell died this morning, I went to YouTube to see if any complete eps of his variety show was available for viewing. The guest list of this one made me very interested to watch. John Wayne, Glen's co-star from True Grit, does some comedy with other guest Tim Conway. Conway imitates him, does a silly parody of Evel Knievel, and plays a member of tap dancer anonymous which was the funniest of his bits. There's a silly short film spoofing western serials. Three Dog Night perform "Just an Old-Fashioned Love Song" (The YT upload varied the volume on that number to avoid copyright infringement since they mimed their recording) and "Joy to the World" with Glen. Glen himself performed "Home Again", "Sooner or Later", and "He Ain't Heavy, He's my Brother" by himself. He also performs "Close to You" to Carol Burnett in a surprise appearance and "Take Me Home, Country Roads" with Jerry Reed who himself performs "Ko-Ko Joe". Also, Duke and Glen on horses intro a film of them visiting Wayne's theatre which displays costumes of his most famous roles. Oh, and one more musical guest is The Mike Curb Congregation whose members are mixed race kids and young adults. The perform "Put Your Hand in the Hand" and "Sing". Overall, this was quite an enjoyable time capsule of a show. R.I.P. Mr. Campbell
