    I loved this; Tennessee Ernie Ford was so real and so funny. Remember him as “cousin Ernie” on I Love Lucy Show?
    Go Ernie! He had a beautiful, deep voice.

    How cute that Angela Carwright was. I was about her age when this aired. Boy how my brother and I couldn’t stand that smart-mouthed Rusty. Cocky little brat. But Angela was a sweetheart.

    That’s Danny Thomas. In the episode his kids are spending all their time with Ernie and he’s feeling jealous.
