Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:32:30

This week is the conclusion of our recording from the 1994 Mayberry Squad Car Rendezvous (I mistakenly said 1993 during the podcast). Counting last weeks episode, we have almost an hour of interviews with Howard Morris, Betty Lynn, and Jean Carson for you to enjoy.  If you haven’t listened to last weeks podcast be sure to go back and give it a listen but you don’t have to listen to them in order.

If you enjoy the interviews, you might want to actually watch the video version of the episodes to be able to see these wonderful stars and feel even more like you were there.  The videos are in the show notes or you can go to our YouTube channel to enjoy the fun.

Below is a list of the questions you’ll hear addressed on this episode.

  • Did any of you get to visit with Hal Smith “Otis” before he passed?
  • When the Darlings played music on the show, was it live?
  • Howard, can you name the bodies of water?

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:34:23

I’ve been going through my old 8mm video tapes and ran across the 1994 Mayberry Squad Car Rendezvous (I mistakenly said 1993 during the podcast).  Finding things like this is like Christmas coming early because this video has almost an hour of interviews with Howard Morris, Betty Lynn, and Jean Carson that, unless you were there, most Mayberry fans will never have heard.

It’s always fun to find things like this to share with you because it’s original content you won’t get anywhere else.  This is part 1 of 2.  Below is a list of the questions you’ll hear addressed on this episode.

  • Favorite Episode?
  • What was Aunt Bee like?
  • Do you ever see/talk to Andy?
  • Howard, how were you chosen to be on The Show of Shows?
  • Do you know Mr. Schwamp’s real name? (Nobody knows his name.)
  • Does Howard have kids/grandkids as wiry as he is?
  • Why did Thelma Lou love Barney?
  • What did Daphnie think about Andy/what attracted her to Andy?
  • Did Richard Linke’s wife play parts on TAGS? (The cast didn’t know but she wasn’t on the show.)
  • Howard, were you a director or an actor first? What did you direct?
  • Do you ever run into the “Darling” clan?
  • Did you enjoy making Return to Mayberry?
  • How is Don Knotts health?
  • Betty, what was Thelma Lou’s occupation?
  • Barney can’t sing….
  • Tim Allen was on an award show and thanked Howard Morris, was that you?
  • Betty, did you ever have a relationship with Don Knotts outside the set?
  • Howard, were you married at the time the shows were being produced?
  • Do you three watch the old episodes?
  • Jean, which role did you like the best? Fun Girl or escaped convict?
  • What’s your favorite episode?
  • Is your personality similar to the character on the show?
  • Did Andy ever ask any of you to be on Matlock?
  • Any contact with Jim Nabors?
  • When Jeff Pruitt came to town looking for a wife we saw a different side of Barney.
  • Could Howard Morris do Ole Aunt Maria?
  • Did you do much improvising during the shows or stay with the script?
