    I am trying to identify the host (man on the left) and the name of a TV talk / variety show that may be country music related from the 1960s.

    Might be a young Porter Wagoner.

    Well just to narrow things down, pretty sure it wasn't from Hee-Haw, the set was too elaborate ;) :D

    Porter Wagoner is a darn good shot at it,

    After looking at a few other photographs, I am going to have to agree that the host is a young Porter Wagoner. I just could not find any photos of him and a guest sitting in those big brown leather(like?) chairs. My screen capture was from the host introducing an older video clip of Chet Atkins.

    Yeah, must go to YouTube to see it.
    Chuck, I'll let ekim68 (Mike) know about this...he likes all things guitar (y)

    One thought that's occurred to me in the pre-dawn hours here, is that the info I've seen on Porter Wagoner's show was that it aired in the '60s and the clip title states that it's from the 50's.
    But the intro is in color, and the clip in B&W... so was he introducing a previous performance?

    Just food for thought.

    Enjoyed the vid :)

    It would be interesting to identify the woman in it also.

    I thought so as well, John! It might help, sure would require some delving and sleuthing...

    A Memory peeking through the canyons of my Brain just now. My Dad was a Porter Wagner fan and we watched some of his shows and for a while he, Porter, had Dolly Parton as a partner for about five or six years. The Show had high ratings for a while and in my opinion it was Dolly, (with Music and Stage presence), that gave Porter his ratings. After a while Dolly decided to start out on her own and it turned out to be a very National Enquirer kind of thing. At one point Porter wanted her to stay so bad that he threatened a lawsuit, but never did... And she did quite well after that...:cool:
