I'm surprised there aren't more responses to Clark's death.

From Wikipedia:

During the 1970s, Clark frequently guest-hosted for Johnny Carson on The Tonight Show and enjoyed a 30-million viewership for Hee Haw. Clark was highly regarded and renowned as a guitarist and banjo [and fiddle] player, and was also skilled on classical guitar (stylized, and ignore the awful video editing) and several other instruments. Although he had hit songs as a pop vocalist (e.g., "Yesterday, When I Was Young" and "Thank God and Greyhound"), his instrumental skill had an enormous effect on generations of bluegrass and country musicians. He was a member of the Grand Ole Opry since 1987, and, in 2009, was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame. He published his autobiography, My Life in Spite of Myself, in 1994.

Classical Minnesota Public Radio note.

I tried searching the old Prairie Home Companion archive, but since Keillor was forced out it's impossible to search the site for specific programs. Too bad - there's a lot of good stuff buried in that resource. This is the site but you have to go through year by year and look at each show. I'm certain I heard Clark on that program some years ago.

He may have spent too much time on Hee Haw and became a parody of guitar players SRS.

People have overlooked his skill and artistry - Hee Haw has been gone for a long time.

Even on the derided television show,
which my family watched devoutly every Saturday evening as I recall
from my childhood,
Roy Clark was a thorough professional when singing a serious song.
He sang Hank Cochran's "Don't Touch Me If You Don't Love Me, Sweetheart,"
and the performance -- however it was recorded, before a live audience or otherwise --
lingers in my memory, lo! these forty-odd years later.

It came as no surprise
that he founded, and profited from, the Branson live-music showcase, in Missouri.
He must have known everything there was to know about entertaining people.
And that is no small thing.
