This past week I ran across a nice article about The Andy Griffith Show on the website CloserWeekly.com. It was called Mayberry Exposed and it got me thinking about Andy and the gang. Where they began. What made them different. Why the show still attracts fans after 50+ years.

Let’s review some of the things we know about Mayberry and see if we find an answer along the way.

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

Two Chairs No Waiting

An important person very much connected to The Andy Griffith Show (TAGS) passed away on January 30, 2010 and I couldn’t let another week pass by without mentioning his passing. So, rather than this episode simply being part three of our remembering Howard McNear we are going to also remember Aaron Ruben.

Aaron Ruben was producer, story consultant, writer, and director and one of TAGS strongest pillars for the first five seasons. Jim Clark, Presiding Goober of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC), said this about Aaron. “Other than Andy Griffith himself, no one was more crucial behind the scenes in guiding and shaping ‘The Andy Griffith Show’ during its first five seasons.”

Mr. Ruben will be missed and fondly remembered.

Parley Baer joins us once again to share his memories of Howard McNear and his experience performing the eulogy at Howard’s funeral.  Smiles and laughter were shared that day remembering Howard and you can hear the love in Parley’s voice as he tells the story.

Tell those Mayberry folks in your life about these episodes of Two Chairs No Waiting.
