“It’s always great fun,” says The Grascals’ co-founder Terry Eldredge of taping the popular show. “You never know what’s going to happen, and this time, Larry surprised us with classic TV footage of The Osborne Brothers’ performance of ‘Up This Hill’ on the set’s jukebox – and then we performed it ourselves …Very cool.”
