I’ve been cleaning up my Mayberry room here at my house and uncovered a gem. Back in 2007 James Best appeared at Mayberry Days and as part of that appearance he performed at Col Tim’s Talent Time. He started off as the guitar player, Jim Lindsey, but it didn’t take long for the Mayberry Deputy to make him pull rank. What insued was a competion to see who was the best lawman.

James was an amazing friend to Mayberry fans so I’m happy to be able to share this amazing memory. David Browning and the Bests became close friends over the years and I know that David enjoyed sharing the stage with him.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Barbara Eden.

It was with a heavy heart that I found out about the passing of James Best.  He passed away the evening of April 6, 2015 and he will be greatly missed by his fans all over the world.  James Best is known to Mayberry fans as guitar player Jim Lindsey from two episodes in season one of The Andy Griffith Show but he is loved the world over as Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane from The Dukes of Hazzard.  But those are just two of the hundreds of characters James Best has played during his amazing life.

I thought a nice tribute to him would be to recall an interview he did with Jim Clark from March 31, 1998 issue of The Bullet.  The story was written by Jim Clark and I think it will give you a different look into James Best’s life and career.

I did an interview with Mr. Best way back in episode #38 of this podcast that you might also enjoy.  It’s fairly short so drop by and give it a listen.

I’m sure that means Goober watched “The Killer Shrews” (1959) at least a few times while it was playing at the Mayberry Grand. That can only mean that James’ newest production is going to be high up on Goob’s must see list. It’s name, “Return of the Killer Shrews.” That’s right, tshooting on the sequel begins in June 2011!
