Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:15:42

We’ve talked about who is Andy, Opie, Barney, and Aunt Bee so I thought it was time to branch out to the other citizens of Mayberry outside the Taylor family circle.

How much do you know about Gomer Pyle?  Did you know he’s Goober’s cousin?  Did you know he lived in the back room over at Wally’s Service?  What else do you know about him?  We’ll, this episode will help you brush up on your knowledge and help you know Gomer just a little better.

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:36:08

Wow…249!  Two Chairs No Waiting has reached an episode total matching the number of episodes of The Andy Griffith Show and it’s time to celebrate that achievement by visiting some of our guests from past episodes of Two Chairs.

Guest from the very early days of Two Chairs were kind enough to agree to drop back by our little corner of Mayberry and visit with us.  We have a hole mess of folks so I’m just going to list them in the order they appeared with links to their episodes listed below in the “Related Links” section.

In appearance order: Al Gandolfi, Tim Pettigrew, Debbie Miles,  Darrel Miles, Samantha Miles, Tim White, Bob Mundy, Alma Venable, Kenneth Junkin, Rodney Dillard, Maggie Peterson, Jeff Branch, and David Browning.  Ain’t that BIG!  Please note that the appearance order is relative only to when I caught up with each one…they’re all number one in my book.

I hope you enjoy the show and thank you for joining me on this special episode.  “Aww….Big ain’t the word for it.”

It’s just after Christmas and many folks out there have gotten new computers, iPods, iPads, or other things that allow them to join us here in Mayberry and Two Chairs No Waiting.  As such, I thought it might be a good time to go over 2010’s top downloaded/listened to episodes of the podcast.

Hopefully this list will help new listeners find episodes they might want to go back and give a listen and remind those that have been listening for a while of some of the fun we’ve had over the last year.

Enjoy the show and welcome to Mayberry if you’re just finding the show.

Welcome to Two Chairs No Waiting.  I want thank Allan for allowing me the chance to host the show! I have a few stories to share with you about some things that happened to me in Mayberry over the years.  These are fun memories NOW but at the time they happened, well, they’re bitter sweet memories that hopefully you can learn from and enjoy.

Be sure to drop by Floyd’s Barber Shop for all your barbering needs and for more stories like these. For a tip, I *won’t* tell you the stories…ha ha..

Also, please remember to leave comments about the show so Allan will know if you enjoyed the episode.

Thank you for listening!

Floyd tells a story about a can of spray paint that didn’t work and Bob White’s piano story.

Two Chairs No Waiting

This episode is all about Franklin Canyon and the real “Myers Lake” location where the opening credits for The Andy Griffith Show were filmed.  If you’re ever in the LA area you will not want to miss out on visiting this location. Be sure to take this podcast along with you so you can listen to the ‘scouting report’ about where the Mayberry related areas are.  Don’t miss out on the photos and other links in our show notes.

Below are the directions to “Myers Lake.

You can only go one-way around the lake and that’s staying to the right. When you start around the lake….stop at the first parking area and walk over toward the wooden railing. Looking down from the road you’ll see an area of dirt….that’s the area where Andy and Opie walked. If you get past the wooden railing…you’re too far. The other side of the lake is where Howard was fishing for “ole Sam”.

The house that’s on the right before you go across the dam is the game wardens office when Andy and Helen went fishing without a license and had to pay the fine.

Directions

2600 Franklin Canyon Drive, Beverly Hills, California

From the West Side, head north on Beverly Drive following signs to Coldwater Canyon. Turn left on Coldwater/Beverly Drive and turn left again on Beverly Drive , at Fire Station No. 2. The third right is Franklin Canyon Dr. continue through residential area to park entrance. At the intersection of Franklin Canyon and Lake Drive turn right to go to Franklin Canyon Ranch site or turn left to go to the Sooky Goldman
Nature Center and Franklin Canyon Lake.

From the San Fernando Valley, From the Ventura Freeway (101) or Ventura Blvd. Take Coldwater Canyon Boulevard south to the intersection of Coldwater Canyon and Mulholland Drive. Make a 90 degree right turn onto Franklin Canyon Dr. There is no street sign “Franklin Canyon.” Road signs read “Road Closed 800 Feet” “Sunset to Sunrise”; this is the park entrance. Do NOT make a “U-Turn” for this will bring you onto Mulholland Drive instead of Franklin Canyon. Stay on paved surface to reach the Sooky Goldman Nature Center and continue south of the lake for 1.5 miles to reach the Franklin Canyon Ranch Site area.
—————————-

As you enter the “loop” that goes around the lake (it’s one way so this should make it easy to describe), you will have a wooden railing on the left. That railing is where Andy stopped on “The Return to Mayberry” and looked down at Myers Lake.  There is a parking area about 40 yards down on the left.

Park there and walk over to the railing just to the left of the parking area (not the railing that on the main road but the wooden “fence” that keeps folks from falling down the slope.   When you look down the slope you’ll see the path. This is where Andy and Opie walked.  There’s a wooden picnic table down there.

Two Chairs No Waiting

The first of a 2 part interview with Kenneth “Otis” Junkin.  Ken has been playing Otis for a while and everyone seems to love Otis. That may be related to the fact that Ken is playing Otis and he’s a person folks love to be around.

We have a special shout out to the boys in kaki serving over seas from a special guest.

If you’re not overseas (i.e. you’re in the US) we now have a toll-free number where you can call and be a part of future episodes. I’m not telling you the number. You’ll have to listen to episode to find out (NOTE: I gave the WRONG Number out on this episode so don’t call it. I corrected it on the next episode.) but we hope to hear from you with your questions or comments about past episodes or TAGS.

The final part of our two part interview with Tim “Goober” Pettigrew. Be sure not to miss last episode so you can hear all of Tim’s interview.

Thank you all for the kind words you’ve been saying about the Two Chairs No Waiting Mayberry Internet Radio Show.  I’m moving away from just saying “podcast” because so many don’t understand you can listen to the episodes even if you don’t have an iPod or MP3 player. You can listen right from our web site. http://iMayberry.com/podcasts/  Thanks for listening

I would love to hear from even more of you fine folks so leave a comment, question, and/or Mayberry experience for us all to share.

I’ve turned up the production value of this episode a little bit by adding some background music while I’m talking. The VW Boys we kind enough to give me permission to use their music on the podcast..err…internet radio show so I want to thank them.  Let me know what you think and drop by their web site to thank them for supporting Two Chairs No Waiting.

TCNW 480: Rance Howard Interview Part 1

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:42:25

A couple of weeks ago, at the 2018 Mayberry in the Midwest event, I was able to visit a bit with fellow Mayberry podcaster John Lane. John was dressed as a young Sheriff Andy Taylor during the event so you may have seen him if you were there. I took the opportunity to ask John if I could re-air the Rance Howard interview he did on episodes 18 & 19 of his “Goober Says Hey” podcast. He was gracious enough to say I could so you are in for a treat, even if you heard it back in 2016 when it was originally released.

We hear from Rance about how Ron and Clint Howard turned out so well; how Ron got the role of Opie; what steps he took to raise the boys as “normal” kids; how did Rance end up in roles on The Andy Griffith Show; “Black Day in Mayberry” role for Rance; how Ron learned the technical aspects of the business; what Frances Bavier was like; memories from the set of TAGS; and so much more!

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Sam Edwards.”
