TCNW Replay 217: Mayberry Christmas to All 2012

Two Chairs No WaitingHost: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:22:55

Merry Christmas, everyone!  I’m taking a break during the holidays to spend with family but I wanted to still be able to spend time with you in Mayberry so I’m doing a Two Chairs No Waiting “Replay.”   Okay…it’s a rerun but, after all, don’t we all love reruns.  So enjoy this Christmas memory from 2012 and Merry Christmas! –Allan

It is a great time of year to be spending time with friends and family.  That’s what I think of you as, friends and family, so I’m thankful to have this chance to visit with you in Mayberry.

The Andy Griffith Show only has one “Christmas” episode and I know fans enjoy watching it year after year.  Because of that, I figure that listeners to this podcast enjoy hearing some of the same things each Christmas as well.  It’s a tradition if you do it more than twice so we’ll continue the traditions we’ve started here at Two Chairs No Waiting.

We get to hear Ben Sandifer’s wonderful Mayberry Christmas poem.

We take a wonderful return trip down memory lane with Charlie Monk called “Andy & Opie Christmas.”
Some “Fred Upstairs” want’a be sings “Barney the Mayberry Deputy.”  And we close out the show with Miss Ellie singing “Away in a Manger.”

God bless you and may the year to come be a wonderful blessing to you and yours.

This is the 3rd and final part of the Neal Brower interview with Elinor Donahue recorded at Mayberry Days 2005.  Elinor talks more of he time on The Andy Griffith Show and picks up right where we left off last week with Neal having asked her if she enjoyed the scenes when she got angry. If you missed episode 313 or 314, please go back and enjoy it then you’ll be caught up and ready for part 3 of the interview.

Neal Brower has been having sessions of Professor Brower’s Class at Mayberry Days for many years. These live classes go along with the regular column called “Professor Brower’s Class” that he started in 1991 in issues of The Bullet (now called The eBullet) newsletter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club.

We’re so luck that TAGS fans Neil & Pat Coleman provided us the recordings of this wonderful interview.

Elinor Donahue is amazing and very open about her life and experience in this interview from Mayberry Days 2005.  “Miss Ellie” is always a favorite of the fan of The Andy Griffith Show and the love for her will only increase as this interview progresses.  We learn about her early live and career and in future podcast episodes we get to know this gracious lady in a much more personal way than every before.

Fan’s had a real treat during Colonel Tim’s Talent Time held during Mayberry Days 2010. Elinor Donahue was a part of the show and on this episode of Two Chairs No Waiting we’ll be hearing from her.  We’ll hear in her own word why she left The Andy Griffith Show after only one season, her favorite episode and the story behind her singing “Away in a Manger” with Andy.  You won’t want to miss this one.

We’re also going to drop in on “Barney” and “Floyd” as we hear a story about Floyd’s glasses.  Big ain’t the word for it.

Two Chairs No WaitingWow…it’s Christmas time again here in Mayberry.  There may have been only one Christmas episode of The Andy Griffith Show but this is our fourth Christmas episode for the Two Chairs No Waiting podcast.

I’m excited to have some great old Mayberry favorites to share with you.

Maybery fan, Ben Sandifer, provided us a wonderful Mayberry poem for Christmas last year so I thought you folks like like hearing it again.

We’ll take a wonderful new trip down memory lane by Charlie Monk called “Andy & Opie Christmas” which is a brand new treat for us this year.

We’ll have fun enjoying Miss Ellie singing “Away in a Manger” to close out the podcast because over the years that’s been the tradition for the Christmas episodes.

If you don’t enjoy any of that…I’ll try a few other things to make your Christmas as Mayberry as possible.

Mayberry Christmas to all!  Lets have some fun and sing along with “Barney the Mayberry Deputy” (Sung to the tune “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer). The lyrics are below.

We also get to hear Miss Ellie sing Away in a Manger for the close of the podcast.  I hope this episode brings to mind the joy of the Christmas season no matter what time of year you happen to be listening.

Barney the Mayberry Deputy
(Sung to the tune “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer”)

Barney the Mayberry deputy,
Had a very shiny badge,
And when he cleaned his bullet,
He would use liquid Pledge.

All of the other deputies,
Tried but it just wasn’t the same,
They couldn’t match ole Barney,
Tiger Fife was his name.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve,
Andy came to say,
Barney with your build so right,
Won’t you be our Santa tonight.

My how the folks there loved him,
Andy, Opie, Ellie and Aunt Bee,
Barney the Mayberry Deputy,
You’ll go down in History!!!

Christmas time is here so I thought I’d discuss the one and only Christmas episode of The Andy Griffith Show.

“Who’s Been Messin’ Up the Bulletin Board?” Chapter member, Janet brought to our attention recently an inconsistency in the Christmas episode that I’d never noticed so I thought I’d share it with you.  You’ll want visit the Photos link over on our Facebook fan page (http://www.facebook.com/twochairs) to see screen shots of the things I’m talking about in this episode when you have a chance. The magical card switch is easy to see (time 1:51 into episode on season DVD) when you watch the episode so pay attention when you watch the episode this Christmas.

Since next week is Christmas week, I’m going to play Miss Ellie singing “Away in a Manger” to close out to the show.

I hope you enjoy it.

Merry Christmas from Two Chairs No Waiting. This episode features an interview with Elinor Donahue recorded during rehearsal for the Mayberry in Meadowview event held in Kingsport, TN on June 27, 1998. It is a fun interview and “Miss Ellie” is a wonderful person. I can’t thank her enough for sitting down and talking with me.  We end the episode in a special way as well so be sure to listen.
