In 1968, Campbell stood in as a replacement on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour television variety show. The experience allowed Campbell to start his own variety show in 1969, which was called The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour.
With "Gentle On My Mind" as the theme song, the show ran from January 1969 to June 1972, and featured musical performances and comedy. Many famous artists appeared on Campbell's show over the years, including Ray Charles, who is pictured with him in the photo above. Charles appeared as a guest on the show a total of four times from 1969-1970.
