August 8, 1998 | JOHN ROOS, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
Y'all know Roy Clark, host of the wholesome if cornball "Hee Haw." Shucks, for 600 original episodes and 24 years of syndication, he was one of the most recognizable faces to fill our television screens. But you'd be hard-pressed to find that big grin anywhere on the tube since the Nashville Network stopped airing reruns three years ago. That's about to change, and the veteran country music singer couldn't be happier.

Sharbutt's article was the truest, most factual evaluation of Presley's talent (or better yet lack of) that I have ever read. I could only disagree with him on one point: He wrote that Elvis "played some guitar." Presley didn't "play" any guitar, he strummed the instrument while he was bellowing into a microphone. The maestro who passed away recently (I think his name was Segovia, but I'm not sure) and Roy Clark "play" the guitar; Elvis wasn't talented enough to set up their music stand.

For 19 years I was a Hee Haw Honey. When I read Randy Lewis' article on Buck Owens ["Bringin' Bouquets for Ol' Buck," Oct. 14"], it brought back so many memories. Thank you for giving him his due. "Hee Haw" was awarded TV Land's Entertainer Award for 2007. As Roy Clark and the cast went onstage, we all felt an empty space where Buck should have been. It's nice to know he is being remembered.
