Fred Hersch, jazz pianist with 15 Grammy nominations, did an excellent 6 min. piano version of Wichita Lineman, on YouTube:

Ira Kaplan, front man for indie rock band Yo La Tengo, did a great interview with Glen in 2011, with references of Phil Spector and touring with Rick Nelson:

From NPR music: Matt Sweeney, guitarist of Skunk, Chavez, and supergroup Zwan, references how Glen made him a pro guitar player. Not sure how common this is, but I found it interesting:

Excellent detailed and lengthy story to be read of what actually took place behind the scenes (good and bad) in putting together & airing of The Goodtime Hour.

Bob Hope called Glen one of his favorite solid sketch actors. Gotta read the entire skit that's layed out. And he goes on describing other events he had with Glen.

From People.com & a search of Glen pops up a lot of story covers. A 40 second video clip I've not seen before, has multiple country stars individually singing a one liner of Rhinestone Cowboy. Click on the photo of Dolly, to start it. It really touches the heart. A 15 second ad plays first:
