We have a couple of questions that were left on our voice mail from listeners just like you.

The first question is from John and is about Andy and clarifying if indeed he was an owner of The Andy Griffith Show or not.   At Mayberry Days in 2004 Andy made some statements that lead John to believe that Andy wasn’t an owner.  We’ll look into that and hear what Andy actually did say back in 2004.

Our second voice mail is from Gary who has some very nice observations about continuity errors during the episode “The Christmas Story.”  Gary noticed the American flag and a calendar doing some interesting things.

Researching Gary’s comments, I noticed a possible connection to Reggie Smith.  Reggie was the prop master for The Andy Griffith Show and was discussed in episode # 234 of Two Chairs.  Are those his initials we see just under the jail cell window?

Wonderful footage of Andy, I could kick myself for not going to Mt Airey when the statue was unvield. I am thankful to Doug Rogers for this footage to be able to see. Just like being there! Interesting about the flag and the calendar. This was fun, I had missed this too. I do remember reading about that wall before and how they had to remove that wall on the set to get camera angles from behind Andy’s desk to get the shots looking across the courthouse into the cells. I imagine with a tight shooting schedule it would have been pretty easy to forget to replace all of the props from time to time. Wow, Alan, great catch “RS” great eye my friend ! This is all very interesting.
