AN IMPORTANT REFERENCE

Anyone who doubts the power of the Internet, or Hee Haw, needs to see this.

Granted, the signal to noise ratio is low, but any show that has had Johnny Cash, Alison Kraus, Roy Acuff and Ray Charles as guests is not without merit.

All very true. However, I can say, without fear of contradiction, that Hee Haw, which did in fact feature many notable performances by C and W musicians who, by comparison with CW today particularly, are geniuses, (Doc Watson, Chet Atkins) that Hee Haw, for all its merits, such as the Empty Arms Motel, was not, perhaps, the premiere celebration of American jazz music.

I would, however, enjoyed the Charlie Mingus jug band guest appearance.
