Subject: RE: PBS - Ken Burns Country Music
Don't know what episode I sat through last night,
as I tuned in after it began.
Jeannie C. Riley singing Tom T. Hall's "Harper Valley PTA,"
which I am old enough to remember from the first time around.

Nice to encounter the songwriter who wrote
"Don't Touch Me (If You Don't Love Me),"
which I first heard, memorably sung, by Roy Clark.

It greatly interested me to learn more about
Buck Owens and his Buckaroos, and how they
were actually ground-breaking in their youth;
from my television-watching childhood,
I only knew Buck Owens from the "Hee Haw" show.
