TCNW 425: The “Real” George Lindsey

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:22:43

May 6, 2017 was the 5th anniversary of the passing of George “Goober” Lindsey. Mayberry fans know George in his persona of Goober Pyle but how many know the “real” George Linsdey.

George always found time to support good causes and the cause closest to his heart was Special Olympics. His annual George Lindsey Celebrity Golf Weekend raised over $1,000,000 for Alabama Special Olympics from 1973 to 1988.

On the 20th of April 1986, the 14th Annual George Lindsey Celebrity Benefit was held at Arrowhead country club and a friend of mine, Rob, was in attendance as a volunteer. As fate would have it, Rob presented me with the program from that event one day after the anniversary of George’s passing.

Who is the “Real” George Lindsey is on page 17 and this episode we’ll learn the answer to the question together.

Bonus:  This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Jerry Van Dyke.
