One of the great comedy classics to watch was Hee Haw. Roku's tv website has 10 episodes. For Glen's appearance, on below link, scroll down to comedies & then across to locate Hee Haw. He's on the 2nd. listed show. One song he sings is Gentle on my Mind.

Musicvf is a database over 120,000 music hit songs from the US & UK, which lists debut date, peak position and which charts (adult contemporary, country, etc.) and country they ranked. Within the subheadings, you can select the album listings as well. One can also select the duets that he recorded with. The site will play the entire song one selects. Under the icon of song play lists versions by others. Then go back to select others songs or the album listings. Pretty cool site. Here's the link for Glen's songs, scroll down a bit to see all the listings:

Mike,
Great find! If you look closely on the piano...this is the sheet music...(which I had as a kid)

Alyson Haley posts blogs in all aspects of life and ties in a specific significant song(s), deeply related to the topic. One post featured has Glen's Try a Little Kindness tied into 2 suicides. Her friend's 18 year daughter Holly and Caroline Flack, Britain's successful tv presenter & host of UK reality show Love Island. The story of both are listed and how it ties in with Glen's song towards middle, with mp3 to listen. Great story of Holly on why a rainbow colored bench is placed in front of her grave with #BeKind.

Ira Kaplan, front man for indie rock band Yo La Tengo, did a great interview with Glen in 2011, with references of Phil Spector and touring with Rick Nelson:
