Mayberry fans know “Good Ole 14-A” or “Welcome Sweet Springtime” as Barney identified it in the episode “Barney and the Choir” (#52) but do you know the history of the melody of that Mayberry ballad.

Two Chairs crack staff…okay, it was Allan since I’m the entire staff…..found out the history of this beautiful song just this past weekend and you’ll find out the rest of the story if you listen to this episode.

Allen, very intresting information. One of my favorites. Being a sound engineer and keyboard musician in church, I have a tendancy to favor the episodes with music in them, not that I don’t enjoy all the episodes. Hope to get to the Mayberry Days this year, my wife and I were able to attend last years for the first time, and loved every minute of it. Coming from Oklahoma takes a little planning though. Keep up the podcast, really enjoy your segments.

“Good-Ole 14-A” was later heard and mentioned by Barney in the TAGS reunion movie ‘Return to Mayberry'(1986)when Andy and Barney are sitting on Opie’s front porch at night.

Very interesting, I always thought this was unique to the show. Did not know that it was a real song much less the name was “Good-Ole 14-A” This was a great show with Barney in the Choir ! I sure learned someting here! Amazing Allan!
