One thing they don't quite go into was how imbued with western swing both Paul and "Ford" were before they essentially moved over to jazz-pop, and latterly closer to the heart of jazz after their commercial heyday (and divorce).
Excellent program, I wish it were available in Hi-Def as the original broadcast was. I've been a guitar player and a Les Paul admirer for over 50 years. He and Mary were quite a team. I listen to their recordings frequently.
I listen to them, too. We bought our son a Les Paul Gibson about 25 years ago, and it was an older model at the time. A great guitar.
