Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:25:35

The week this episode originally aired, it was Thanksgiving week in America.  I guess that had me focused on things I’m thankful for and one of those was the time I was able to spend with George “Goober” Lindsey from The Andy Griffith Show.

The first four episodes of Two Chairs No Waiting consisted of an interview I did with George in 1998 that was broken into four parts in order to keep the episode length as short as possible.  Over time the podcast has grown in length and I’ve always wanted to take those four parts and make them one seamless interview with George.  What you’re about to hear is just that.

This interview was my very first one ever. It was recorded in 1998 in Jim Clark’s (the Presiding Goober of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club) living room in Nashville, TN.  Present in the room were George Lindsey, Jim Clark, Kenneth Junkin, Jan Newsome, and myself.

As I said, this interview was the first time I’d ever “tried” to interview anyone and it was 10 years before I started this podcast.  I had NO idea what I was doing so you may notice that George is basically asking himself questions. He was wonderful.  I can’t thank him enough for helping me learn about being prepared. You will hear me piping in from time to time and you’ll hear Jim Clark answering questions in the background.

Some of what George discusses:

* His time on TAGS and Mayberry RFD.
* Reflections about fellow cast members.
* Howard McNear, Floyd Lawson, comments.
* Goober mannerisms, where they came from.
* Goober’s hat and where did that idea come from.
* Pen’s and stuff in his pockets.
* No real pranks on the set.
* Other areas of his carrier other than TAGS.
* He taught school in Hazel Green, AL for one year.
* The requirement to know your lines and being on-time were things Andy expected.
* Andy threw “Goober” in the lake.
* George Lindsey Film Festival.

Enjoy the interview!

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:22:30

Let’s check in with Jim Clark and The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) official newsletter, The eBullet, to see what’s happening around Mayberry and with the cast & crew.

Two Chairs No Waiting only gives you a small slice of what’s The eBullet has to offer so please subscribe to the newsletter (it’s FREE) so you’ll have it delivered directly to your e-mail inbox about six times a year.  That way you won’t miss out on any of the Mayberry happenings throughout the year.

Since we’re benefiting from the hard work that Jim Clark did with The eBullet, I thought it would be a great time to hear from Jim himself.  We go back to the 1995 Mayberry Squad Car Rendezvous where Jim is interviewed by Dennis Hasty and Mark “Golden” Richards.
