Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:21:31

This is our third episode with Neal Brower interviewing writer Harvey Bullock at Mayberry Days in 2002. Harvey Bullock (June 4, 1921 – April 23, 2006) wrote 31 episodes of The Andy Griffith Show, 21 episodes of Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. and co-wrote the TV movie Return to Mayberry with Everett Greenbaum. So much of what we, as fans, know of the town of Mayberry was created by the mind of this amazing man.

The audio isn’t perfect but this content is something you will not want to miss. Harvey didn’t seem to want to hold the mic up to his face so he’s a little hard to hear. From time to time there are sound artifacts that I’ve cleaned up as best I could so they wouldn’t be distracting.

In this episode Harvey discusses his joy at being one of the writers on The Andy Griffith Show, his favorite scene and how it wrote itself with him just sitting there as an observer.

You will not want to miss any of this series.

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

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:41:41

This is our third episode with Neal Brower interviewing writer Harvey Bullock at Mayberry Days in 2002. Harvey Bullock (June 4, 1921 – April 23, 2006) wrote 31 episodes of The Andy Griffith Show, 21 episodes of Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. and co-wrote the TV movie Return to Mayberry with Everett Greenbaum. So much of what we, as fans, know of the town of Mayberry was created by the mind of this amazing man.

The quality of the audio isn’t perfect but this content is something you will not find elsewhere. If you watch the video verison of the show, you can see that Harvey didn’t seem to want to hold the mic up to his face so he’s a little hard to hear. From time to time there are sound artifacts that I’ve cleaned up as best I could so they wouldn’t be distracting.

In this episode Harvey discusses his favorite character to write for, Don Knotts comic ability, Andy’s relationship with Barney, The Cow Thief, The Big House, Prisoner of Love, Susan Oliver, Howard McNear and tidbits of Mayberry history.

You will not want to miss any of this series.

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