Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:32:48

Hal Smith has been on my mind the last few weeks so I thought we’d look back at the March 26, 1999 issue of The Bullet and see what Professor Brower had to say about the episode, “Hot Rod Otis.” It was the 30th episode of season three and the 115th episode filmed over-all. Professor Brower brings us comments from episode writer Harvey Bullock that you will not find anywhere else.

Randy Turner bring us a This Week in Mayberry History report covering actor Roy Barcroft who had an amazing career and who played “Clint Biggers” in the episode “Dogs, Dogs, Dogs.”

We also hear a couple of voice mails and a report from Betty Lynn‘s 92nd birthday back on August 29, 2018.

TCNW 494: Hal Smith, Howard Morris, and more

Two Chairs No Waiting

Running time: 0:22:29

We talked about Hal Smith last time here on Two Chairs and that inspired feedback from several of our Mayberry friends so we’ll be hearing that on this episode. We’ll also be getting a great report from Randy Turner on Mayberry’s own “Howard Morris.”

Howard was much more than Ernest T. Bass and I want to thank Randy for pushing fans to look at more of Mr. Morris’ amazing work. There’s a link in the note for an amazing skit that Howard was part of back in April 1954 on “Your Show of Shows” with Sid Caesar and Carl Reiner. If you have time, you really should watch.

Friends, go out there this week and tell your family you love them and call up an old friend or two. Spread the Mayberry spirit all around because the world certainly needs it.

TCNW 493: Hal Smith Was More Than Otis

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:26:17

This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner features Hal Smith and that got me thinking that I’ve never dedicated an episode of this podcast to Hal Smith nor Otis. I’m going to change that this episode.

By the time you leave, you’ll know more about Hal Smith than most fans of The Andy Griffith Show. He was a special person and I think you’ll soon see that is a truth and not just an opinion.

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.

Two Chairs No WaitingSet in Rachel Kansas, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken is one of my favorite Don Knotts movies.  That could be because so many folks from Mayberry showed up in this, Mr. Knotts first movie after leaving The Andy Griffith Show.

The first is, of course, Don Knotts as Luther Heggs but lets start of with the behinds the scenes folk.  The Ghost and Mr. Chicken was written by Jim Fritzell and Everett Greenbaum.  Andy Griffith also helped re-write the script but is uncredited for his efforts.

That is only the beginning of the connections and fun trivia related to Mayberry and Don Knotts first movie following The Andy Griffith Show.  Turns out there was so much that this will be the first of two episodes of Two Chairs No Waiting that we’ll do on The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.

Two Chairs No Waiting

Opryland in Nashville, TN presented a Mayberry Reunion back in 1991.  In this episode we hear from some of the cast of The Andy Griffith Show that were present for a press conference held just before they began the reunion shows held over the course of a weekend.  We’ll have more clips from this press conference in the coming episodes so be sure to stick around.

The question being addressed in this show is, “Do you feel you were typecast because of your role on The Andy Griffith Show? Also, address any negatives or positives related to your role.”

You’ll hear the following folks answering these questions in this order: Rodney “Darling” Dillard, George “Goober” Lindsey, Betty “Thelma Lou” Lynn, Maggie “Charlene” Peterson, Hal “Otis” Smith, and Jack “Rafe Hollister” Prince.  George and Betty speak more than one time each but I’m sure you’ll recognize their voices as you listen.
