From the YouTube clip, "Glen Sings Unconditional Love" feat. Nashville Now Host Ralph Emery.

Glen Campbell sings Unconditional Love in what appears to be a makeshift sound stage in a club or little hall.

Glen Campbell and Host shaking hands and picking up microphones on long cords seated on a small row of chairs.

Emery
(barely audible) Now they can hear us... (signal picks up)
Now, now they can hear us.

Campbell
Thank you, Ralph.

Emery
Now... You know... I forget it takes me awhile to get condition to both, normally I have a little microphone clipped to my tie and I don't have to woryy about whether you hear me or not.

Campbell
I know what you mean.

Emery
Welcome to the show.

Campbell
Thank you... it's... it's fun to do the show with you, I just love it.

Emery
We were discussing in the dressing room and uh, I asked Glen about an old old album he did which uh, I always enjoyed, the live... the first live album that you did at the Garden State Art Center in uh, er...

Campbell
New Jersey

Emery
New Jersey and then you mentioned some rather amazing Chart Positions for your records all at one time and I wanted you to repeat that for me.

Campbell
Oh, it's uh that debut album, that's why I remember it so well you know, I did it... it was released like two weeks after that- soon as they got to mix it you know and they got it cut all together and they debuted at the Number One Pop Chart and the Country Chart...

Emery
And it had Phoenix and Wichita Lineman and Galveston and so on songs like that in it, but you told me like what... that you had 5 Songs in the top Pop Ten.

Campbell
Pop Ten, yeah. It was right after the TV show started and in '68, yeah... like I had four and the one Bobby Gentry and I had just did in the Pop Ten, Pop Charts.

Emery
Singles... Singles...

Campbell
Yeah...

Emery
You had five at one time.

Campbell
Yeah... ALBUMS!

Emery
Albums?

Campbell
Yeah. Album Charts. And in the Country Charts we had with the Bobby Gentry one we had 8 of the Pop Ten.

Emery
You had 8 of the Top Albums?

Campbell
Uhm-hmm...

Emery
Wow!

Campbell
Head count... who... who... uhm...

Emery
I'm just curious, who had the other 2 spots?

Campbell
You know i didn't notice (laughing and squinting, looking into audience)
I wish I had, uh, now!

emery
But that... those... those were amazing days, I understand...

Campbell
They really were.

Emery
Now that you are revising The Goodtime Hour, in a way...

Campbell
In a way yeah, I uh had worked with Nicolette Larson before, she's doing the tour with us. She... we did down in Florida and up through Massachusetts... Maine... did the Bronx in New York and Levin Hall there... that's fabulous... there's West Point... we was at... we did 21 days with 3 days off, and then uh, John Hartford was on the tour and uh,,,, I do it... I did it just like I was on the Goodtime Hour you know, do the first part Gentle On My Mind, "Hi, I'm Glen Campbell"! (in high pitched voice) and uh, bring Hartford out and Nicolette out... and the real star of the show is really Jim Stafford.

Emery
Really?

Campbell
Jim is so funny... he's growing.

Emery
You sing the one that is very difficult to bring him to sing.

Campbell

Oh, Oh... The Blues That My Naughty Sweetie Gives To Me

Emery
What...

Campbell
Jim's part is pne of the great ones...one.... (singing very fast) "Well now, there are blues you get from wimmin when you see 'em going swimmin' and you haven't got a bathing suit yourself"... And then Jim is supposed to go, "There are blues you get and much quicker when you say, hide a lot of liquor and your lady goes and swipes it off the shelf"... I think that he's done it right once since, uh, in the eighteen days!

Emery
What have you got over there.

Campbell
Oh, wait a minute, if I get that out you won't, you won't say anything about this one, (long cardboard box with artwork for Unconditional Love compact disc).

Emery
Oh, okay excuse me, I'll look at it, you did something in here that uh, I uhm, I think that is kind of interesting, uh, you recorded Connie Smith's old hit that Bill Anderson wrote which Connie's debut hit made her career, Once A Day.

Campbell
uhm-hmm, I always loved that song.

Emery
And, uh, I don't recall... I... anybody else ever singing that but Connie Smith.

Campbell
Me neither, that's why I did it, I never heard anbody especially a male sing it.

Emery
Is this uh, is this the only old song on here.

Campbell
No, Willie Nelson wrote, "The Healing Hands Of Time".

Emery
Yep, I remember that.

Campbell
Willie, I guess has the only one I guess that ever cut that, that I know of.
And I, I didn't phrase it like Willie because nobody can phrase it like that.

Emery
That's true, ah... Unconditional Love is the new Single, which I heard on the radio comin' out here tonight.

Campbell
It's uh, the biggest Single that I had, that's it's... in a long time.

Emery
You know you really had an amazing career.

Campbell
I'm glad that you help me. I'm glad that you did that.

Emery
Do you still sing, "Southern Nights"?

Campbell
Oh, Yes. I love all those songs.

Emery
"Rhinestone Cowboy"

Campbell
Oh, Yes.

Emery
What is this?

Campbell
He was talking about old albums.

Emery
Yeah

Campbell
I was up in Portland Maine and somebody gave me an album... I wanted... I wanted to bring it up to you... she said... I said that I wanted... take that and give it to Ralph Emery. I don't know if you probably have one or not.

Emery
This, this was...

Campbell
I never got any Royalties on that, by the way.

Emery
We discussed that we didn't pay you anything.

Campbell
Oh! Did you get... did you get the picture!

Emery
What this was, I think that we paid you 150 dollars.

Campbell
Oh, was that it?

Emery
Which, it was standard fee, this was a, this uh, only went to Radio Stations.

Campbell
Oh, really?

Emery
It was... It was... I had a Syndicated Radio Show that was sponsored by The Gold Medal Flour.

Campbell
Look at that young man, (points to a picture of Emery behind a microphone boom interviewing Campbell)

Emery
Look at that Mutton Chop on the side of my ear. Anyway, and you may have remembered that we taped this on, on a little Studio on 19th Avenue.

Campbell
Yeah, that was... what... was that now, '67 or '70?

Emery
Yeah, uh, '72.

Campbell
Oh, was it '72?

Emery
'71

Campbell
Oh, my that was only 20 years ago.

Emery
Well, anyway the Show was new and we sent this out to Radio Stations to show them what the show was like and you were red hot and so we used your picture.

Campbell
I'm glad that you did.

Emery
To get inside the Radio Station door.

Campbell
I feel honored.

Emery
And what's inside is one sample of the show.

Campbell
Sample of the Show, that's alright.

Emery
Okay, you're giving this to me.

Campbell
Yeah, I figured...

Emery
That's a nice souvenir.

Campbell
I figured... I figured you never had it...

Emery
The fact is, uh, your hair was a lot longer.

Campbell
Yep

Emery
And I was a lot skinnier.

Campbell
Yeah, I noticed that mine is creepin' back on the forehead there.

Emery
Yah, you had, you had 15 hairstyles, haven't ya?

Campbell
I really... yeah... I guess I have yeah... I tried it curly one time, boy, that was a joke...

Emery
What? You mean that curly thing they do... where it's curly do....

Campbell
Yeah, like Conway did his, you know... Boy, looks good on old Conway... I look like a Fanny Rooster!

Emery
We were going to have an audience segment but we're running late, but I, I do have a few questions for you Glen, from the people in the audience, we'll just answer them quickly, correct, alright...

Campbell
Great.

Emery
Uh, David Scott wanted to know did Glen Campbell play back up for The Beach Boys in recording, sessions, and if so, for how long?

Campbell
Uh, I did about from '64 through '67, Pet Sounds is the last thing- album that I played on, and uh, "Good Vibrations" from that and uh...

Emery
Did you travel as a Beach Boy?

Campbell
yeah, when Brian first decided to go off of the road and just produce, uh, I went out on 3 days notice, I played Bass, and sing the high part, sing Brian's part, I did it there for about 8 months and that's ... this is something because I am not a Bass Player and I raised my voice by at least a tone and a half.

Emery
Did they ever discover that you weren't a Bass Player.

Campbell
No

Emery
Okay...

Campbell
Mike can't sing either, but he's beenn doin' it about a hundred years.. (looks to audience and laughs)

Emery
Is Glen Campbell going to do some more recordings with Anne Murray?

Campbell
I, you know... probably will, we're both on Capitol now and uh, I have, I have a lovely duet that I'd like to try with Anne because we did an album once that didn't get a fair shake on Capitol.

Emery
It's a good album.

Campbell
I wanna do one... do one with Bowen here.

Emery
Is Campbell going to do anymore movies?

Campbell
I... I, I've read a lot of Scripts since True Grit but I tell ya, it's... once you do, when you work with John Wayne, the movie after that Ralph... the reason I didn't want to do it... I had three more movies to do with Hall Walllace, well, it was called Norwood and it had Joe Namath and me in it, and I said, okay who's going to do the acting, you got a guitar player/singer and you had a football player and well, Kim Darby did the acting and then, but, the story... the whole story- the guy's lifelong dream,,, Norwood is to... his dream is to get on the Louisiana Hayride with a pet chicken... Now, I said I think that I would like to have a little deeper story than that, or I'm not going to do anymore Movies... Well, Norwood was the last Picture... Norwood was the last Picture... I did one after that with Robert Culp for Television called, "Strange Homecoming".

Great idea, Cowpoke! I will think on a dedicated topic for transcripts.
Rob, you and your wife have a treasure trove with your taped TNN Music Specials.
If these programs are on VHS, then the programs can be transferred to DVD for your personal collection.

Hi Rob,
these transcripts are awesome. Thanks again for doing them. Dee, can we create a separate topic or a subforum for Rob's transcripts? Since our forums is optimized for google searches, these transcripts will prove very useful for anyone who is looking for specific information about Glen, in years to come.

I heard someone poked their nose into Rick Nelson's refrigerator and the shelves were bare with the exception of a couple bottles of Pepsi and a box of Snickers!

Glen Campbell was a close friend.

When you watch the Crook & Chase YouTube clip Glen Sings Highwayman look at his cheeks, especially when he is talking and pushing his tongue to the side of his cheek.

I know the crammed feeling or sensation, biting and chewing the caramel and nuts, what are the odds Campbell had a Snicker Bar...

"It the candy"!

Re: Your Stories and Memories about Glen

Postby robduloc » Mon Sep 07, 2015 1:17 am

Thank you, Dee,

I was living at home when I was 23, the City had just laid the first cable link in our neighborhood.

I worked and went to Community College off and on until I graduated with an Associate Arts in '89.

My real life lesson was to tune into Nashville Now every week night, I used to edit out all the commercials, it took an ever watchful eye.

But what I noticed and think about and appreciate to this day, is Emery's attention to Songwriters and Songwriter credits.

And when I was compiling all the info for all of Glen Campbell's recordings I could hear in the back of my head all the names of songs and songwriters Campbell covered that I first learned about tuning into TNN.

When I got married, my wife and I continued too tape and drop out all the commercials for all the TNN Music Specials, that is until we had children a couple years later.

The sheer volume of those tapes... I think that I figured one time if I were to play them back to back, it would take three weeks to finish, they're all at the higher speed.

I would like to do something with them one day before they get too old, highlights from TNN without commercials 1982 to 1992 or 1994.

As you can see, I am still holding vigil.

I just happen to know Glen Campbell and his family and friends are some of the most talented musicians and recording artist there are!

Love,
Rob

Crook & Chase 1983 TNN
From the YouTube clip, "Glen Sings Highwayman"

Part II

Campbell
Yeah, I'm gettin' that way again... Ya... I think, uh, that since I sobered up... huh-huh..

Chase
"Cough".

Campbell
Oh, by the way, it's been four weeks and six days now I quit smoking so we can be very...

Crook
Alright!

Chase
Dang.... I tell ya Glen, what day is it.

Campbell
Well, uh, it's a Sunday

Chase
Oh yeah, well, that's fine we can... so with that...

Crook
Now what, what...

Campbell
Sunday would be 5 weeks.

Chase
Good.

Crook
Now...

Chase
God, good, good...

Crook
Bless your heart, it's hard to quit, I know,

Campbell
But I'm getting picky about songs you know, bu doing Show Me The Way, Oh Lord, it opened uh, something up in me, that... that... uh, it was kind of stifled for awhile you know because Radio says we are gonna play this kind of music or that kind or this here or that kind of feel and I said, boy, whatever happened to good songs you know?

Chase
Uh-hmm

Crook
Yeah!

Campbell
So I just got to go in and do what I want with the Show Me Your Way album.

Crook
Yeah, and I kinda think most type of... of singing are spiritual anyway.

Campbell
Uh-hmm

Crook
But when you actually do a Christian song, a Gospel song does that have a whole different meaning and feeling for you, do you...

Campbell
Oh, yeah!

Crook
Do you feel like a different singer.

Campbell
Oh yeah, definitely.

Crook
Uhmm... Yeah...

Campbell
Yeah... the one that Phil Driscoll wrote that is called Jesus And Me on the album is going to be the next Single. I really just love it, actually, Phil wrote it about his life and put me in it I think.

Chase (laughs)

Crook
Yeah...

Chase
Now you see that you're doing Christian Music and of course the people who have been long time Glen Campbell fans like Gentle On My Mind and uh, you know Wichita Lineman and so forth and so on, do you uh, do you find 'em wanting an explanation why you made the switch.

Campbell
No. Well I do uh, Secular and I do the Christian.

Crook
Uhm-hmm

Campbell
I played the... I did the first one uh, March 14th at Prestonwood Baptist Church at Dallas and uh, I had to do... we did 2 Shows... it's about a four thousand thirty five hundred- five thousand seater...

Chase
Uh-huh

Campbell
2:30 on Sunday Afternoon, and 7:30 that night and both of them were sold out. I did half Contemporary and like... half Christian...

Chase
Uh-hmm

Campbell
And it was just marvelous you know.

Chase
Yeah

Campbell
Not to be in there and have anybody hollerin' at you.

Chase
Yeah, you find yourself fulfilled.

Campbell (feigning an incoherent intoxicated listener)
"Play the last Cryin' In The Rain"!

Crook (laughs)

Chase (joining in the banter)
"Tips Of My Fingers"!

Crook
Okay, we have uh, audience questions here, and I guess everybody knows Glen is hosting the Double Awards tomorrow and it's uh, tomorrow night isn't it?

Campbell
Yeah, it's tomorrow night.

Crook
And Marilyn McCoo... Well, Betsy Wes Paul is here from West Virginia and wants to know are you nervous about hosting that show... it is live...

Campbell
Yeah... No!

Crook
Oh, it's not going to be Live?

Campbell
...I love Live Shows. It goes by one time uh, and you got to to do it right the first time either that or you go like, (imitates Steve Martin) "Ha-Ha- I forgot"!

Crook & Chase (laugh)

Crook
And then what, I know, you know...

Campbell
But Steve Martin was writing for The Goodtime Hour when he started doing that, and I said, "What a great line"... it's, it's just- "I forgot"! You know... It's simple.

Crook
Oh, I know what I got to ask you now! During.... at the beginning of the show I told the folks that I had a Coke before I got to coming out here and I was really worried that because it was effervescent that it might come out, you know.

Campbell
I know what you mean, I was going say that when I was doin' Highwayman... I did say the candy bar, you know... I, I've been up since four this morning my time and I went out to rehearse today... and I was standing out... out... (feigns choking on candy bar pushing tongue to side of mouth)
"I'm not doin' well... it the candy"... (coughs)

Chase
Now you folks rest well assured that I haven't had anything to eat or drink prior to the show.

Crook (laughs)

Chase
And if both of them just happen to drop right here in a minute or so then I will be here to take care of it.

Crook
Oh... We... You don't know about both of us!

Chase
Hey... Well, okay... another question... Gary uh, Weinstein... I guess it is from Maplewood New Jersey... is here and what is your impression of today's Country & Western Superstars compared to when you became a Star... like uhm, in the late Sixties.

Campbell
Oh, I think that it is just marvelous. I just love Garth Brooks. Alan Jackson you know... Alan has got that Movie Star look to him... looks young...

Crook
Yeah

Campbell
Uh, and he writes really good stuff, you know.

Chase
He... he could probably be in a movie like True Grit too, you know.

Campbell
Oh, of course he could, definitely.

Chase
Yeah... he...

Campbell
Yeah

Chase
Yeah...

Campbell
Got's those good looks.

Crook
I can't read the last name on this, it's uh, Dwayne. Somebody from here in Nashville. He wants to know, Glen can I borrow 20 bucks.

Campbell
Sure...

Crook (laughs)

Chase
Well...

Crook
Dwayne. Shame on you.

Chase
Well that ws very easy for him to say, isn't it?

Campbell
Charge Interest!

(resounding laughter throughout the studio)

Chase
Eh-Heh-Heh-Ah! Well, uh, in the meantime we want to point out, uh, that uh... By the way, you have a song that you recorded that is nominated tomorrow night, right?

Campbell
Yes! That's uh, uh... Where Shadows Never Fall and,,, and the album is nominated for Gospel... Best Country Gospel Song- written by Jim Weatherly and Carl Jackson!

Chase
Well. Alright! Alright! Hey... we want to also mention too, that Glen is uh, opening up a big Theater in Branson.

Campbell
Yes! Yes!

Crook
This is happening May 1st.

Campbell
Yes. Yes. May 1st.

Crook
It's... It's The Grand Palace.

Campbell
Yeah

Crook
Ah... Oh, Wow!

Campbell
Can you imagine, four thousand seats, and in the summer you do two shows a day... tee-hee-hee

(either Crook or Chase whistles)

Crook
Can you imagine it? Of course!

Campbell
Yes. Yes.

Crook (laughs)
Go and say what...

Campbell
Enjoy!

Crook
Will you be spending lots of the summer there.

Campbell
Yes I will.


Crook
Okay. And you're going to be... be... with uh... Now, Lousie Mandrell is hosting her own set. Right?

Campbell
Uh-hmm

Crook
And you'll be... you'll be kind of switching off.

Campbell
Right! It's... it's a... "Two Star Concept"... That when I'm hostin'... I know already that I will... got Patty Loveless... You will have Patty Loveless tomorrow... And Emmy Lou Harris and Roger Miller and uh, Waylon and Jessie...

Crook
Wow!

Campbell
We'll both be... and The Oak Ridge Boys and The Statler Brothers... And I get to work with them you know, and they will be on 3 days a week and I will be there for the whole week.

Chase
Outstanding. And you will be with Marilyn McCoo tomorrow.

Crook & Chase 1983 TNN
From the YouTube clip, "Glen Sings Highwayman"

Chase
I always enjoy this man's music. After a long time, he has Gold Records. He has Platinum Albums, he has Platinum Singles, he has Platinum everything. He has been a Movie Star. A Television Host. a Double Award Winner.... Uh... Oh... But... And he probably... Probably the only thing that he hasn't done is sing On The Tips Of My Fingers...

Crook
Or well... Well... If you wanted him to, he might...

Chase
Well, he was during the break...

Crook
He is so good at singing Gospel Christian Music. This is the album called, Show Me Your Way, but today I think he is performing uh... The Highwayman song, is that right, Glen... Here is Glen Campbell.

Glen Campbell sings and plays solo on acoustic guitar.

Crook
we are back on Crook & Chase with Glen Campbell. The first thing I wanted to do is show off your guitar strap. i think that is the coolest thing that I have ever seen. Did somebody make that for you.

Campbell
Uh... Ricky Skaggs... I, I commented on it... We did The 700 Club Special and I commented, "Boy, what a beautiful guitar strap". I got into Nashville yesterday and this was at the uh, my office (laughs).

Crook
He had one made?

Campbell
It was actually at Marty's house.

Crook
How nice.

Campbell
And uh, isn't that beautiful?

Crook
That is...

Campbell
Thank you so much, Ricky.

Chase
Yeah, and if you are watching Ricky, I really love that guitar.

Crook
You go for anything, don'cha.

Chase
If you get the opportunity, go for it, you know.

Campbell
You'd make a good golf club... that you'd throw in your golf clubs.

Chase
Hey, one thing that I'd like to bring up, we were talking about this upstairs a moment ago, uh, True Grit, your first movie appearance, I think in 1968...

Campbell
Uh Hum

Chase
This is after uh, the television appearances, you made the television appearances and then the other shows...

Campbell
We had the Goodtime Hour for about...

Chase
Right! But, your kids wanted to see it, right?

Campbell
Yeah

Chase
Had they seen it before.

Campbell
Yeah! They wanted, they wanted... the little 5 year old wanted... said, "Daddy, can we watch True Grit"? And I said, "Well sure, I guess so, uh-hmm". It's an old tape and... uh... uh, I was watchin' it and sat there lookin' at it you know, and from just like sittin' there lookin' at it and it was quite a good movie, and uh, it had some great lines in it.

Chase
Uh-huh

Campbell
I love Kim Darby's line, "I would not put a serpent in my mouth to steal my mind".

Crook
Oh, yeah

Chase
But, I...

Campbell
John Wayne was drinkin', you know...

Crook
But when you watch it, do you like what you did still or do you think that you should change.

Campbell
I, I saw a big difference see... about three weeks into the movie I... I, uh kinda buddied up with Robert Duvall and I was askin' man... I actually hadn't gotten any help from anybody and I had never done this before and what I did after Robert Duvall got on board, and he told me, he gave me a few pointers actually... I kinda liked what I did...

Chase
Huh

Campbell
But it was a contrast of voice, I was so nervous man... you couldn't have... I mean, stuck a...

Crook
You were working with John Wayne, you know.

Campbell
Oh, I know it!

Crook
John Wayne, oh... well, speakin' of kids, you sit around and play with your kids... guitars and things like that?

Campbell
Yeah, we all play now.

Crook
Oh, do you?

Campbell
Yeah, Kal plays drums, I play guitar and Ashley plays tambourine.

Crook
Oh-ho-ho!

Campbell
And always- she doesn't know the name of it, she says Daddy, it goes, "Da-la Da-la Da-la Da Da"
(William Tell Overture)

Crook
Oh-ho!

Campbell
And she plays the tambourine on it and she goes (very fast) "Da-dig-uh da Da-dig-uh da"...
And she's got great time, and Shannon uh, he plays guitar a little- got a string I got him... oh huh... it's just a lot of fun.

Crook
Oh... huh... they're so cute... oh, you have beautiful kids and a beautiful wife too!

Campbell
Yeah, yeah!

Chase
And, and uh, one... oh, one of the other things that I am sure interest your kids is the fact that you do the voice of- Oh, yeah... Chanticleer... that is... that uh, the way it is pronounced ... it's the voice of the Rooster in Rock-A-Doodle.

Campbell
Right, that, that was great fun. We came back here and did that with The Jordanaires... And uh, uh...Three years ago!

Crook
Wow!

Campbell
Then they animate to what you do, actually.

Crook
Oh

Chase
Yeah!

Campbell
And little Ashley, she uh, looked at me and she said, "Daddy, how did you get into that Rooster"?

Crook
Yeah-Uh... He-Oh... He-Oh... Huh-Huh-Huh!

Campbell
She didn't... didn't put the two together yet.

Crook
But she recognized the voice, huh?

Campbell
Yeah

Crook
Do you, we have a clip of Rock-A-Doodle?

Chase
Yes we do, yes we do... a little import... and I think The Jordanaires are backing you up.

Campbell
Oh yes, and The Jordanaires, they were so much fun to work with.

Chase
Watch the animation and listen to Glen.

Crook
Yeah, uh...

Chase This is great fun.

Rock-A-Doodle clip
(Chanticleer singing and dancing in front of an ecstatic audience with a full back up band)

Let me be your rooster and let me roost with you
Let me be your rooster and let me hear your sweet voice coo

Girl, you throw me for a loop
Well, your the number chick in this chicken coop

NARRATOR: "Chanticleer had become a star"

I wanna Rock with you
I wanna Rock, Rock with you till the day is through

I wanna Rock, Rock-A-Doodle... Uh... Through the night
I wanna Rock, Rock, Rock 'till the morning light

Well, it ain't right to rock alone
Until the day I do, I do with you and me

I wanna Rock-A- Rock-A-Doodle with you
Like you Rock-A- Rock-A-Doodle me
I wanna Rock-A- Rock-A-Doodle you do

(Crook & ChaseTV audience applaud)

Chase
Ho-Ho-Hah!

Crook
Great! You know what, unless I had known that was already you singing, I don't think that I would have guessed it... what... you put a little Elvis into it or something...

Campbell
Yeah, just a little... (singing) "Rock-A-Doodle doodle you"... Yeah, I did all those moves and they animated it to that too...

Chase
Oh yeah, I would say that.

Crook
Hu-huh... it didn't take long... well, it didn't take long...it didn't take long to do all that tracking, right?

Campbell
No, It took about three days to do the whole thing. The only one I worked on with, uh, Ellen Greene from Little Shop Of Horrors, she played uh, Goldie Pheasant she uh, and Phil Harris played the Dog and uh, Sandy Duncan did the Little Mouse uh, Christopher Plumber oh... did the bad Duke, and uh, Charles Nelson Reilly did his little Nephew... it's really uh, a cute film.

Crook
I wonder uh, when you were recording did you try to imagine in your mind what- what this Rooster would be doing so the voice would match when they did animate it.

Campbell
Uh... kind of... Don Bluth would... sittin' there in the studio and say this song to be happening and this is going to be happening so.... for us to try and do it that way so... uh...

Crook

Chase

Campbell
Uh, I like this, I like this better than bein' in front of a camera myself.

Chase

Crook

Hey, we have some audience questions, we'll get to those in a minute, first of all, you're in your latest recording project. You're in the process of searching for material but you're one of those guys that... you're very picky of what you like to select or record, right?

Transcripts are a lot of work for you, Rob! I'll bet your every transcribed word is like panning for gold for you.
These transcripts are great reading, and I pick up more when I read the words than when I just listen.
I enjoyed Emery's dry sense of humor ("I wish that you would welcome a grown up version of Carl Jackson".)
Emery was right on about having the best two banjo players on his show.
Loved your carnival analogy, too!
It seems to me that Carl and Glen were destined to meet. There is no such thing as a coincidence, you think?
Sawdust...and stardust (magic). Yes, tinsel, too!
Keith Whitley...I was just playing his videos again on YouTube a few days ago. Sadly, I had only discovered his music after he passed away.
We are so glad you are enjoying these forums, Rob, and thank you for taking us along on the journey to "...hunt and search for Glen Campbell's lasting legacy."
I hope you and your family have a wonderful Labor Day holiday!
Thank you for all you do for Glen Campbell Forums and for all the fans who come here to read and learn.

I do believe the Carl Jackson Nashville Now introduction that I submitted featuring the song All That Is Left For Me is from 1983, I have another segment from The Nashville Network from 1983 featuring Glen Campbell, that I believe covers a lot of important topics.

In case if you are wondering, I transcribe all the dialogue by hand and onto blank paper, and enter it here.

....or is the proper term, "The roar of greasepaint and the smell of the crowd"... I don't know...

Sawdust and tinsel have to be in there somewhere.

Tinsel catches the light.

Sawdust. Good clumping properties for spills and other kinds of big messes.

...Yes? ...smile...
