Two Chairs No Waiting 271: Floyd & Otis at Zion

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.

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:36:08

Wow…249!  Two Chairs No Waiting has reached an episode total matching the number of episodes of The Andy Griffith Show and it’s time to celebrate that achievement by visiting some of our guests from past episodes of Two Chairs.

Guest from the very early days of Two Chairs were kind enough to agree to drop back by our little corner of Mayberry and visit with us.  We have a hole mess of folks so I’m just going to list them in the order they appeared with links to their episodes listed below in the “Related Links” section.

In appearance order: Al Gandolfi, Tim Pettigrew, Debbie Miles,  Darrel Miles, Samantha Miles, Tim White, Bob Mundy, Alma Venable, Kenneth Junkin, Rodney Dillard, Maggie Peterson, Jeff Branch, and David Browning.  Ain’t that BIG!  Please note that the appearance order is relative only to when I caught up with each one…they’re all number one in my book.

I hope you enjoy the show and thank you for joining me on this special episode.  “Aww….Big ain’t the word for it.”
