    I grew up just a few miles from PW's home town of West Plains, Mo., where he was/is such a legend that the main drag is called Porter Wagoner Blvd. I watched his show every Saturday afternoon as a kid, awed that someone from the backwoods of the Ozark hills had his own TV show. I remember his introducing Dolly and hearing her sing "Coat of Many Colors" for the first time. Cajungrandma is right: the Wagonmasters were a great band. I can still the faces of the fiddler and steel guitar player. I wonder if those old shows are archived somewhere on the Internet? Thanks for the memories, Porter and last.fm.

    Another great country star that doesn't get the attention he truly deserves! And that's why i made this group: [url=http://www.last.fm/group/Country+from+the+50s+%26+60s]Country from the 50s & 60s[/url] To make sure that classic country artists like Porter won't be forgotten. It was he who made Dolly known to the world and he made outstanding songs/albums himself. R.I.P. Porter.
