Ronnie Jackson played banjo for the TV show Hee Haw. He dressed like a cowboy along with his other bandmates, The Buckaroos. But Ronnie's love of cowboys ran deeper than that - he loved TV westerns and dreamed of being a cowboy as a kid. He turned that admiration into a full-color photo book on the history of TV westerns. How has the image of the TV cowboy changed? Who fits the iconic role of "hero" on TV now? Ronnie Jackson joins us to talk about cowboys, television, and behind-the-scene stories from Hee Haw.
