Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:20:40

My wife and I recently took a trip to Tampa, FL where we were able to meet up with a Mayberry fan named Ron Blankenship.  Ron, who goes by Emmett in Mayberry circles, is one of those folks that belongs in Mayberry.  Like so many on The Andy Griffith Show, Ron has a quality of caring for his friends that makes him right at home with the citizens of Mayberry.

Ron chose the name Emmett to go by online because he’s a handyman himself.  The name just kind’a worked because he, like Emmett, can fix most anything.  I’m not sure about him being able to dance though…I didn’t think to ask him during the interview.

Ron is a fan just like you and me so who better to talk to than a fellow fan in order to learn what makes The Andy Griffith Show so special.

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:25:12

It seems like just yesterday when we celebrated out 250th podcast with an interview with TAGS cast member Betty “Thelma Lou” Lynn so it’s hard to believe we’re already at episode 260.   For this milestone episode I thought it only fitting to feature another cast member interview.

We heard from LeRoy “Mack” McNees a little more than a year ago so I’m glad to be able to have him back on the show.   LeRoy was a member of The Country Boys and appeared on two episodes of The Andy Griffith Show.  “Mayberry on Record” and “Quiet Sam” were the two episodes and LeRoy even had a speaking part on “Mayberry on Record.”

I’m sure you’ll enjoy this interview with LeRoy so sit back and have some fun.
