TCNW 500: The New Barber

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:36:38

500! Wow…I never intended to do this podcast past episode 249 since that would have matched the number of episodes of The Andy Griffith Show. Here we are at twice that number and you are still listening. THANK YOU!

Since reaching 500 episodes is a milestone, I thought it would be fitting to do something special and thanks to Joe Gritton I think this episode will be special.

Joe wrote a script for an episode of The Andy Griffith Show and we’ve turned it into an “old time radio” version of The Andy Griffith Show. It’s like finding a lost episode featuring our friends from Mayberry.

Two years ago “Mayberry After Mid-day” was released to sound like an actual episode of The Andy Griffith Show from beginning to end. Now we have a second episode, “The New Barber.”

Writer Joe Gritton provided the script featuring Mayberry barber, Floyd Lawson, and door-to-door salesman, Bert Miller, and a few other Mayberry notables. Sit back and use your imagination to picture the goings on in Mayberry, NC while you listen to this “old time radio” program.

Randy Turner will return next week with his This Week in Mayberry History.

TCNW 414: Floyd and Calvin Coolidge

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:26:26

As I’m recording this is Presidents Day in the United States so I wanted to use that topic as a theme for this episode. The first President that comes to mind with I think “The Andy Griffith Show” is Floyd the barber’s favorite, Calvin Coolidge.   Since the two go together, let’s hear from FAQs about Floyd and follow up with some quote from President Coolidge.  I think you’ll enjoy both!

Bonus:  This week in Mayberry History provides us with some great facts about how Mayberry got started on The Danny Thomas Show and more.

What if The Andy Griffith Show had been on the radio? I mean old time radio? Wouldn’t it be great to discover that there were lost episodes with our Mayberry friends in them?

Four years ago “Mayberry After Mid-day” was released here on Two Chairs but it was across two episodes (#191 &192). This speical edition is created to sound like an actual episode of The Andy Griffith Show from beginning to end.

Writer Joe Gritton provided a wonderful script featuring Mayberry barber, Floyd Lawson, and door-to-door salesman, Bert Miller. Sit back and use your mind’s eye to picture the goings on in our hometown of Mayberry, NC while listening to this “old time radio” program.

We begin “Mayberry After Mid-day” with Bert Miller walking down the sidewalk of Main Street heading from the Mayberry Grande toward the courthouse. As Bert nears Floyd’s barber shop, he slows down and considers sitting down for a rest on the bench outside the barber shop window. Join them now in Mayberry and hear what happens.

Two Chairs No Waiting 271: Floyd & Otis at Zion

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:28:46

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.

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…..

Two Chairs No Waiting 157: Podcast Season Four

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:21:19

Two Chairs No WaitingLet’s kick off the fourth year of podcasting here at Two Chairs No Waiting with a little look back to the way things were at the beginning.  Episode #1 was released on October 11, 2008 so the release date of #157 is exactly 3 years, and 156 episodes later.

Things have changed a little over the years (like the audio quality and having a video version of the show) but I hope the Mayberry spirit continues to flow though from me to you.

I have enjoyed bringing you a little under 41 hours (40.8 hours) of Two Chairs No Waiting over the past 3 years.  Thank you to all of you for listening and supporting the show.

The Andy Griffith Show and Mayberry are alive and doing well.  Thank you all for keeping the Mayberry spirit alive.

Floyd Lawson, the barber in Mayberry, guest hosts this episode of Two Chairs No Waiting which features an interview by Greg Davis of the Priority Talk radio program heard on WXJC 92.5 fm and 850 am in Birmingham, AL.  Allan was invited on the show to talk “Mayberry” and it just happened to be the week leading into the 11th Annual Mayberry Squad Car Nationals held in Graysville, AL.

Folks have been asking for Allan to interview himself but that never seemed right to him so thankfully Greg did the interviewing and “Floyd” is guest hosting so Allan didn’t have to ask himself questions. Floyd host this and the other 2 parts of the interview that will follow over in the coming weeks.  We hope you enjoy the show.
