We lost Don Knotts on February 24, 2006 so each year around that time we take an episode of the podcast to remember the man who Don was and what he’s meant to his fans.

This episode we’ll look at Don’s biography so we, as fans, can get to know who he was just a little better.  I hope you’ll join me in remembering Don Knotts.

There has been a photo making the rounds on the internet the last month or so saying:

You’ll never, in a million years, guess who this is.

Guess who?

Bet you can’t guess who this blonde beauty is………  
look closely and try guess before scrolling down for the answer.. After you guess or give up, scroll down below the photo.

It then goes on to say the photo is Frances Bavier.  Well…it isn’t.  I’ve been trying for weeks to defeat this rumor/urban legend but I’m not winning.  I’m hopeful that after this podcast, the listeners of Two Chairs will help me spread the truth.

We’ll also hear a couple of your voice mails!  Keep ’em coming…I love to hear from you.

Friends, the world lost our number one deputy on February 24, 2006.  To celebrate the life of Don Knotts and the amazing character he brought to life the Two Chairs No Waiting podcast has dedicated an episode of the podcast to him each year.  This year is no exception.

TAGSRWC member Bart Boatwright owns a master copy of the The Andy Griffith, Don Knotts, Jim Nabors Special from 1965.  As part of that special, Andy and Don appeared as Andy Taylor and Barney Fife in a version of the Mayberry courthouse.  They even performed the judo attack with a ruler skit with Andy attacking Don.

I hope you’ll enjoy hearing the scene and picturing in your head the action.  In this one case, you may also want to watch the video version of Two Chairs to see what’s happening.  Or just drop by Bart’s YouTube video and see the original.

Thank you Mr. Knotts, for all you did to bring joy into our lives!  “Mayberry says, ‘Thanks and happy motorin.'”

I know you enjoyed last weeks episode and you’re going to enjoy this weeks even more. This interview is from almost 20 year ago (April 1993) and aired on WBT in Charlotte, NC. Our hosts are Henry Boggan and Mike Collins.  The interview a Don and Barbara were on an eleven city national tour of the play “Last of the Red Hot Lovers” at the time.

These two stars from The Andy Griffith Show are special people and I know listening to the conclusion of this interview will make that even more clear to fans.  Enjoy the show!

I know you’re going to enjoy this so sit back, hang on, and enjoy listening to these two stars from The Andy Griffith Show.

We had fun last week with Mayberry tribute artist Ken “Otis” Junkin (a.k.a. Big Maude) and I didn’t want the fun to end.

This episode we get to hear a bit more from Ken but this time it’s about his trip to Hollywood back in January 2000 to see Don Knotts get his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.  Episode 97 of Two Chairs No Waiting was devoted to the topic of Don Knotts’ star and you’ll want to go back and give that podcast a listen after you hear Ken’s tale.  Atta boy, Ken!

We’ll also hear a short but fun story by tribute artist Christie McLendon who fills the role quite well of Charlene Darling Wash’s daughter, all growed up, Andylina.  You should remember Andylina. The baby version of her was betrothed to Opie Taylor but some witchery on Andy’s side of the family broke off the betrothal.

Last week we discussed “Where is Mayberry?” and there was a question asked in the chat room during the live recording that I didn’t know off the top of my head.  I looked up the answer in The Andy Griffith Show Book by Ken Beck & Jim Clark and share it with you early in the podcast.

We then answer some of the frequently asked questions (FAQs) that have been asked over the years related to Barney Fife/Don Knotts.  As you might guess, that’s where the name of the podcast came from and I want to thank Matt who goes by FarmerSamJones in the chat room for suggesting the episode title.

I hope you enjoy listening to these trivial trivialities and I would love to hear back from you with questions or comments.

Two Chairs No WaitingThere was so much information about the connections between Mayberry and The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (TGAMC) that it took two episodes of the podcast to cover it all and part 2 is one of the longest episodes ever of Two Chairs No Waiting to fit it all in.

There are about 19 TAGS/TGAMC connections that our crack research staff..okay it was just me but it sounds better to say it was a staff…was able to find.

I hope you’ll enjoy audio clips from TGAMC and the loads of Mayberry fun in this episode of the podcast.
