Song of the Day: Roy Clark, “Malagueña”

Country and bluegrass musician Roy Clark was born on this day in 1933. A superior guitarist who also played banjo and fiddle and was a superb singer, he was the host of Hee Haw for its entire run, and also appeared on talk shows and sitcoms. Here he plays a version of "Malagueña" on a 1975 episode of The Odd Couple. Tony Randall and Jack Klugman look on as their characters, Felix Unger and Oscar Madison.

(Sorry this is delayed. I went to bed before setting this up.)

    1. You had some of the finest country musicians and comedians on that show, plus all the guest stars. It had wide appeal, so even city folks liked it. Roy wasn’t just a country singer and picker, he could play just about anything. If being the star of “Hee Haw” is what’s keeping him from being recognized as the great musician he was, it’s a terrible injustice.

  1. The Odd Couple was playing for a while on our tv station in Hamilton and I saw this episode and just like now, my mouth was wide open. at one point I could not see his one hand clearly because he was so…so fast. Amazing!!
