Running time: 0:32:30

This week is the conclusion of our recording from the 1993 Mayberry Squad Car Rendezvous. Counting last weeks episode, we have almost an hour of interviews with Howard Morris, Betty Lynn, and Jean Carson for you to enjoy.  If you haven’t listened to last weeks podcast be sure to go back and give it a listen but you don’t have to listen to them in order.

If you enjoy the interviews, you might want to actually watch the video version of the episodes to be able to see these wonderful stars and feel even more like you were there.  The videos are in the show notes or you can go to our YouTube channel to enjoy the fun.

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:34:23

I’ve been going through my old 8mm video tapes and ran across the 1993 Mayberry Squad Car Rendezvous.  Finding things like this is like Christmas coming early because this video has almost an hour of interviews with Howard Morris, Betty Lynn, and Jean Carson that, unless you were there, most Mayberry fans will never have heard.

It’s always fun to find things like this to share with you because it’s original content you won’t get anywhere else.  This is part 1 of 2.  Below is a list of the questions you’ll hear addressed on this episode.

  • Favorite Episode?

  • Do you ever run into the “Darling” clan?
  • Did you enjoy making Return to Mayberry?
  • How is Don Knotts health?
  • Betty, what was Thelma Lou’s occupation?
  • Barney can’t sing….
  • Tim Allen was on an award show and thanked Howard Morris, was that you?
  • Betty, did you ever have a relationship with Don Knotts outside the set?
  • Howard, were you married at the time the shows were being produced?
  • Do you three watch the old episodes?
  • Jean, which role did you like the best? Fun Girl or escaped convict?
  • What’s your favorite episode?

  • Did Andy ever ask any of you to be on Matlock?
  • Any contact with Jim Nabors?
  • When Jeff Pruitt came to town looking for a wife we saw a different side of Barney.
  • Could Howard Morris do Ole Aunt Maria?
