Musical Interlude: The Lawrence Welk-Hee Haw Counter Revolution Polka (1972)

Hee Haw & The Lawrence Welk Show ended their network runs in 1971, as CBS & ABC, respectively, felt it was necessary to overhaul their lineups in order to cater to younger audiences.

A year later, Hee Haw's Roy Clark did something about it.

Clark released "The Lawrence Welk-Hee Haw Counter Revolution Polka", which got a ton of airplay on local country radio long after it peaked on the Billboard country chart at #9.
