Best Of The Jimmy Dean Show, The: Volume Two

A pioneer in televising country music, Jimmy Dean reached a national prime-time audience in 1963 when The Jimmy Dean Show made its network debut on ABC. This hour-long program, billed as a "down-home country variety show with grassroots flavor," presented established and rising stars in a classy setting. Roger Miller and Buck Owens, among others, get their first nationwide exposure on Dean's show, as did a puppeteer named Jim Henson. His wisecracking, piano-playing dog Rowlf became a popular sparring partner with Jimmy, as well as the first Muppet star. Singer Molly Bee appeared frequently, while the Stetson-wearing Chuck Cassey Singers lent vocal support each week. The Jimmy Dean Show ran for only three seasons, but it laid the groundwork for The Johnny Cash Show and Hee Haw - the most successful country music program of all time. With his long career as both a recording artist and TV host, Jimmy earned the nickname "the Dean of Country Music."
