Random thoughts of a former TV news director
August 29, 2017

Thanks to Jay for forwarding a former TV news director's blog with a fascinating, in-depth accounting of the relatively-unknown-to-fans business side of the Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour.

The writer was very much affected by Glen's passing last August 2017. She/he prefaces the article as follows:

This blogpost is taken from my years as a television historian. I reflect on the rise of a young singer into a popular weekly television performer, as well as the slow beginning of the end of the genre of which he was a significant part from 1968 to 1972.
