The news that George Lindsey passed away on May 6, 2012 hit hard to Mayberry fans all around the country.  I thought to ease the hurt we would take some time to celebrate his life by hearing from directly from him.

The 15th Annual George Lindsey UNA Film Festival was held in Florence, Alabama on March 1-3, 2012 and as part of the festival include the dedication of a new Black Box theater named after Mr. Lindsey himself.  The George Lindsey Theatre and the Ernest Borgnine Performance Hall ribbon cutting was a special event. The most special part was seeing George and getting a chance to listen to him as he spoke at the dedication ceremony.

Part 1 of Mr. Lindsey’s presentation and some memories from listeners will bring you back for more….just like George did.

Hearing George Lindsey speak of appearing on Gunsmoke reminded me of one of my favorite episodes, “Mad Dog”, which featured TAGS cast members George, Hoke Howell and Denver Pyle. George’s performance as one of the mean Watson boys, Pinto, was absolutely brilliant. But of course he will forever be “Goober” to me first and foremost. He added so much personality and humor to every show he appeared in. Thanks for all the laughs, “Goob”.
