Thread Name: Anyone remember the Johnny Cash tv show?
Subject: RE: Anyone remember the Johnny Cash tv show?
Along with the occaisional hokiness, there were some brilliant moments and guestbookings that you couldn't find anywhere else. Derek & The Dominos getting to jam with Carl Perkins was a highlight, Buffy, Ramblin' Jack and of course there were "the Amuric'n awl' adds for their sponsor. I think some of the Cash shows are coming out on DVD.
One of the other shows around those years that didn't last too long, was one hosted by Roger Miller. Rather eccentric and the host was given a fairly free hand. He even had The Kweskin Jug Band as guests one week. Anyone remember THAT one?
