I love it when listeners help me find great content for the podcast and this episode is exactly that.  Randy Bewer sent me an e-mail with a link to a story from the May 7, 1961 edition of The Milwaukee Sentinel titled,  McNear: Barber Who ‘Cuts Up’ and it was gold.

I’ve been involved with The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) for going on 30 years and I had never seen nor heard about this article by United Press International writer J.A. Amant.  I hope you enjoy this little nugget even half as much as I did when I first read it.  It’s kind of like finding a lost bit of history.

You’ll also get to hear a little about the 2014 Mayberry Meet-up held in Mt. Airy in July.  A fun time was had by all and I encourage you to get out there and visit with your friends and family….turn them in the Mayberry fans if you can.

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

I was reviewing my archive of hard copy versions of The Bullet and found a jewel in the June 1, 1992 issue.  There’s a story in there by Jim Clark titled “Howard McNear – The Many Parts of Floyd the Barber” and it is a treasure!

On this episode of Two Chairs, I’ll read most of this wonderful focus on Howard McNear to you and I know you’re going to enjoy it.  If you enjoy it as much as I think you may, y0u can purchase a copy of the full version for yourself over at Weaver’s.

Enjoy learning more about America’s favorite barber.  “Everything’s okay in Mayberry.”
