Two Chairs No Waiting 157: Podcast Season Four

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:21:19

Two Chairs No WaitingLet’s kick off the fourth year of podcasting here at Two Chairs No Waiting with a little look back to the way things were at the beginning.  Episode #1 was released on October 11, 2008 so the release date of #157 is exactly 3 years, and 156 episodes later.

Things have changed a little over the years (like the audio quality and having a video version of the show) but I hope the Mayberry spirit continues to flow though from me to you.

I have enjoyed bringing you a little under 41 hours (40.8 hours) of Two Chairs No Waiting over the past 3 years.  Thank you to all of you for listening and supporting the show.

The Andy Griffith Show and Mayberry are alive and doing well.  Thank you all for keeping the Mayberry spirit alive.

Follow me on Twitter if you use twitter. I’ve been posting Mayberry things there as another way to let folks know about The Andy Griffith Show.

Mr. Knotts fans join me in remembering the life of this man who has brought so much joy into our lives.  We hear from Al Gandolfi, the subject of last weeks show, about his favorite memory of receiving an autograph.

Ken Anderson, Brian Humphrey, Jelsic Stern, and Clyde Hughes also took time to call in with their thoughts about Don Knotts.

We’re heading back into the archives of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) to read about Mayberry folks from the mountains around town. The story is from “The Bullet,” the official newsletter of TAGSRWC, volume 1 issue 2 (March 18, 1983). This is a fun trip back down memory lane to the very early days of TAGSRWC.

We also hear from a caller who lets us know that Richard “Doc” Ferrara (one of the subjects of our last episode – #121) was mentioned on The Andy Griffith show episode “Ernest T. Bass Joins the Army.”

Part 2?  What happened to Part 1?  Part 1 was done to celebrate the 100th episode of the podcast with Andy Griffith joining us in a recording of his address to the crowds at Mayberry Days 2004.  We continue that presentation with Part 2.

Andy discusses how they came up with the idea for The Andy Griffith Show and a bit about how the tone of the show was set.  He tells us if he’s getting rich off of re-runs of The Andy Griffith Show.  Andy also mentions the Presiding Goober of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club by name and that is BIG for all of us who are members.

2004 was the year that TV Land presented the Andy & Opie statue to the city of Mt. Airy.

Thank you to Doug Rogers for providing us with this outstanding audio of Andy’s comments.

Do you ever have conversations with fellow Andy Griffith Show fans that ONLY another fan would understand or enjoy? Well, I do and I ran across one such exchange recently and I believe it will be something that you, as a Mayberry fan, will enjoy hearing about.

The conversation you’ll hear about was between The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) Presiding Goober Jim Clark, the members of The Schumpsters, The Mayberry Texans, and Mother Figure chapters.

We also hear from some listeners about episode #66. We’d love to hear from you, too so…don’t forget to leave comments or ask questions on the iMayberry.com/podcasts website or using the contact information given in the podcast. We’d love to have you be a part of our next feedback episode.
