Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:32:52

We’ve had reports from “on the scene” and heard from Betty related to her birthday back on 29 August 2016 but on this episode we get to hear from some of the folks who traveled to Mt. Airy, NC to be part of “Thelma Lou’s” birthday celebration.  These are fans, just like you and me, who we able to make there way to the Andy Griffith Museum and wait in line to get Betty’s autograph and to spend just few minutes in her company.

What would make someone travel to the town of Mt. Airy, NC just on the chance of spending time with someone they’ve admired for years?  Why is was it important to them?  Let’s ask them and see what answers we get about what brought them to be there in that line.

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:30:58

If you  missed episode 392, I recommend you head back and enjoy that episode before you move foreword with this episode since it’s Part 2.   Part 2 of what?  Well, just one of the biggest days Mayberry has had for quite a while.

29 August 2016 was a BIG day celebrating Betty “Thelma Lou” Lynn’s 90th birthday in Mt. Airy, NC and let me tell you, it was a sight to behold.  I recommend you watch the video versions of the podcast to actually “see” the goings on so you’ll be able to feel like you were there.

This episode we focus on the evening of the celebration when we traveled downtown to the Earle Theater there in Mt Airy to watch “June Bride.”  June Bride was a 1948 movie staring Betty Davis, Robert Montgomery, and a young Betty Lynn in the title role.

We can’t watch the movie on the podcast but we can hear from Betty and her memories of the film and the stars.  PLUS we hear from North Carolina Lt Gov Dan Forest with a special presentation.  PLUS PLUS…a couple of “Mayberry” boys send their regards.  IT’S BIG!!
