Two Chairs No Waiting has been so fortunate to have permission from Neal Brower to share with you some of the interviews he has done as part of “Professor Brower’s Class” at Mayberry Days.  If you’ve missed them, I would like to encourage you to go back and give them a listen or watch the videos.

This episode of Two Chairs begins a series of interviews by Neal with Bruce Bilson, assistant director of “The Andy Griffith Show” from 1960-63.  Mr. Bilson has knowledge about TAGS and how it was made that I’m betting you have never heard.  Mr. Bilson was there at the creation of the filming of opening credits and for those first several years developing the “feel” of Mayberry.

It’s not too often that I recommend watching the video version of this podcast but because of the clips shown in this episode as part of what Mr. Bilson tell us, the video adds a lot to the experience.

SPECIAL NOTE OF THANKS: Neil & Pat Coleman from the “Remembering Mayberry” chapter of TAGSRWC for providing the recording of Professor Brower’s Class from Mayberry Days 2011.
