Minnie Pearl - I saw this queen of the Grand Ole Opry when she appeared as guest star on "The Jim Nabors Show". I was in the audience during the taping of that show and as the camera followed her to the stage she passed right by my brother and me; we ended up on TV when we later watched that show at home!
