In this episode, we're featuring a 1969 compilation album on the Pickwick label: Guest Stars Of The Hee Haw Show. As the name suggests, the music featured here is all from artists who appeared on the massively successful Hee Haw TV show in it's first year on air, carried to a national audience on the CBS network. However, the music from these artists, including George Jones, Sonny James, Faron Young and Ferlin Husky - is all from the very early parts of their careers - mostly the 50s through the early 60s - and as such, it's a unique look into some of the traditional country music sounds of that era. Particularly strong cuts from Bakersfield icon Wynn Stewart, who was a good friend and mentor to Buck Owens.
