In late January 2014 The Andy Griffith Show cast member and all around great guy, LeRoy Mack performed for a packed house at the Zion Community Center near Gordo, AL.  The community center is an old two room school house that now acts as the gathering place for family reunions and special events.  LeRoy agreed to perform for an evening event in order to raise money for the center to be able to pay their insurance bills and whatnot.

What does that have to do with the Floyd & Otis at Zion title of this episode? We’ll, I’m glad you asked!  LeRoy was joined by Ken “Otis” Junkin (who actually attended Zion when it was still a school) and Allan “Floyd” Newsome (your host) for the evening and it was a fun night, let me tell you.

I can’t play LeRoy’s performance because he makes a living performing and selling his music but I can give you a taste of the fun that can be had in Mayberry.  We get to hear the opening act of the evening which was Floyd & Otis entertaining the crowd for twenty minutes or so.  You’re going get to hear what you’re missing by not attending the Mayberry events held throughout the country.  Make plans to attend one near you….you’ll love it.

Two Chairs No WaitingHost: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:16:10

Last week we heard from Floyd and Bert all about Barney and Thelma Lou’s first meeting at Wilton Blair’s funeral and the romance that followed.  That was some hay ride.

As we left the pair, they were sitting in the barber shop beginning to talk about Mr. Schwamp and Nellie.

Let’s drop by the barber shop and see what other gossip they might be sharing about the towns people of Mayberry.   Let’s join them now and hear what happens.  Listen…..

 

Thank you to writer Joe Gritton has provided a wonderful script featuring Mayberry barber, Floyd Lawson, and door-to-door salesman, Bert Miller.
