Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:33:22

This is part two of the two part interview with Bernard Fox, Mayberry’s Malcolm Merriweather. The interview was recorded in 1998 at the 6th Annual Mayberry Squad Car Rendezvous held just outside of the town of Bradford, OH.

He was only in three episodes of The Andy Griffith Show but “Malcolm” is a well remembered visitor to Mayberry. The role that most people outside of Mayberry likely remember best would be as Dr. Bombay, the warlock doctor on Bewitched. These are but two of the MANY roles played by this amazing actor.

The interview is performed by Mayberry, and pop culture, fan Dennis Hasty and was recorded live by my wonderful wife Jan.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Les Tremayne.”

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:36:57

This is the first of a two part series featuring an interview with Bernard Fox, Mayberry’s very own bicycle riding “Englishster” Malcolm Merriweather. This interview was recorded 1998 at the 6th Annual Mayberry Squad Car Rendezvous held in the middle of a corn field near the town of Bradford, OH.

Though he was only in three episodes of The Andy Griffith Show, “Malcolm” is one of the most memorable visitors to Mayberry. Of course, I have to admit that for a long time Malcolm wasn’t the first role I thought of when Bernard Fox was mentioned. The role that many outside of Mayberry most likely remember him as would be as Dr. Bombay, the warlock doctor on Bewitched. Malcolm and Dr. Bombay are but two of the MANY roles played by this amazing actor.

Enjoy part 1 of this great interview by Mayberry, and pop culture, fan Dennis Hasty recorded live.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Gene Reynolds.”

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:46:21

This is going to be a fairly long episode because I wanted to bring you the entire on stage interview with Sheldon Golomb (a.k.a. Sheldon Collins) who played Opie’s friend Arnold Bailey during the color years of The Andy Griffith show.

The interview was recorded at the 6th Annual Mayberry Squad Car Rendezvous held in a corn field near the town of Bradford, OH back in 1998. This was the first, and one of only two, Mayberry event that Sheldon has attended. Dr. Golomb is a dentist in Colorado Springs, Colorado and has been running his own practice for 20 years.

Dennis Hasty is the interviewer and was the host of “Good Morning Mayberry” on Cincinnati’s WMOH 1450AM at that time. If you watch the video version of the podcast, you’ll see a much younger version of me as Floyd on stage as well.

The guest for the 1999 Mayberry Squad Car Rendezvous were Sue Ane Langdon (Nurse Mary), Sheldon Golomb (Opie’s friend Arnold Bailey), and Bernard Fox (Malcolm Merriweather).

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Andy Clyde.”

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:33:59

On October 24-29, 2017 I had the special privilege of being on the Mayberry Cruise with Margaret Kerry (Bess Muggins/Helen Scobey). Margaret is an amazing lady who I have grown to love over the several years I’ve known her. She has so much talent and has a career with so many highlights that we will have a hard time hitting them all.

This episode is part 1 a series consisting of the interview I did with her during the cruise. I know you’re going to enjoy this series and I would like to remind all the audio only listeners of Two Chairs that there are parts of this interview that would be most fun viewed on the video version but I’ll do my best to make sure it’s enjoyable either way.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “The Return of Barney Fife.”

TCNW 447: It says 9 for Nine Years

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:56:47

On the 11th of October 2008 the first episode of Two Chairs No Waiting was published. Since then I have created enough content to allow a listener to consume Two Chairs for 6 days and 15 hours. That’s almost 24 hours a day for a week. If you have listened to all of those hours, I’m amazed you made it through. Even if you’ve listened to the majority, I’m humbled and thankful.

This episode marks the 9th Anniversary of this show and I thought it would be a good place to just have a conversation about Mayberry. That’s what I did on a podcast hosted by John Lane called “Goober Say Hey” that recently ended it’s run after 23 episodes. John interviewed me for his final episode and we talked about a rang of Mayberry related topics to include Mayberry events held around the country, where The Andy Griffith Show was filmed, how I keep Two Chairs going, and much more.

This is going to be the longest episode I’ve ever posted so keep in mind you can pause and come back later if need be. So, sit back and enjoy two Mayberry fans talking about our love for The Andy Griffith Show. I think you’ll enjoy it.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring The Andy Griffith Show is going to be released as a SPECIAL Episode so it is featured, as it should be.

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:23:58

Recently, the Daily Mountain Eagle newspaper located in Jasper, AL  (George “Goober” Lindsey’s hometown) did an interview with me that was all about this podcast.  I asked Jennifer Cohron, the Daily Mountain Eagle’s features editor and writer of the article, if I could use her story on Two Chairs No Waiting.  She said it was no problem and I thought it would be fun to do a podcast about a newspaper story about the podcast….that’s so meta!  (If you don’t know what meta means in this use, ask somebody very young…they’ll know.)

Bonus:  This week in Mayberry History.

TCNW 406: Bernard Fox Remembered

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:19:06

On December 14, 2016 we lost one of the great character actors and gentlemen  of all time, Bernard Fox.   I thought it would be fitting to remember Mr. Fox with an interview I did with him back on 26 June 1998 in Kingsport, TN.

As you listen, near the beginning of the interview, we are interrupted by Howard “Ernest T.” Morris.  Those you’ll here talking in the background are Maggie “Charlene Darling” Peterson, all the The Dillards (a.k.a. The Darling boy), Howard Morris, Elinor “Miss Ellie” Donahue, and Jean “the Fun Girl” Carson.

Bernard Fox was known to TAGS fans as Malcolm Merriweather but to non-Mayberry fans his best-known role was as the warlock physician  Dr. Bombay on Bewitched.

Mr. Fox was  a “fifth generation performer” and was born with the name Bernard Lawson in Port Talbot, Glamorgan, Wales. Maybe he’s distant kin to our own Floyd Lawson.  Bernard was married to his wife Jacqueline since 1961.

This interview was first published on Two Chair back on episode #19 (February 17, 2009) but I felt it fitting to revisit.
