Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:27:09

The final episode of this four part series featuring Neal Brower’s interview with Bruce Bilson, assistant director of “The Andy Griffith Show” from 1960-63.  Mr. Bilson’s knowledge about TAGS and how it was created makes this series of Two Chairs episodes some of the best ever.  Mr. Bilson was there at the creation of the opening credits and for those first several years developing the “feel” of Mayberry.

I recommend watching the video version of this podcast because the clips shown as part of what Mr. Bilson tells us adds a lot to the experience.

This episode we hear about how directors need to know the script better than anyone, Frances Bavier, peeping tom, Barney and the Choir, Andy playing guitar, his thoughts on The Andy Griffith Show from a directors perspective, and more!

SPECIAL NOTE OF THANKS: Neil & Pat Coleman from the “Remembering Mayberry” chapter of TAGSRWC for providing the recording of Professor Brower’s Class from Mayberry Days 2011.

This is the third episode of the four part series with Neal Brower interviewing Bruce Bilson, assistant director of “The Andy Griffith Show” from 1960-63.  Mr. Bilson has knowledge about TAGS and how it was made that I’m betting you have never heard.  Mr. Bilson was there at the creation of the filming of opening credits and for those first several years developing the “feel” of Mayberry.

I recommend watching the video version of this podcast because the clips shown as part of what Mr. Bilson tells us adds a lot to the experience.
