Thread Name: Anyone remember the Johnny Cash tv show?
Subject: RE: Anyone remember the Johnny Cash tv show?
The Roger Miller Show was way too short lived but I guess Roger was a bit off the TV radar. I was in my teens and my Mom and I both shared a huge fanship for Roger Miller. The Cat was simply both a genius and hilarious. I wish I would have seen "Big River." on Broadway

At the final Concert of Bands in my senior year of high school the Jazz Group put together a sextet arrangement on "King of the Road" featuring me on Tenor. My Mom had been ill with cancer for three years and they entire group all pitched in as a fun thing for her and she enjoyed the hell out of it. Good friends they were. She died only a few months later.
