Let’s have a fun time visiting and celebrating the 200th episode of Two Chairs No Waiting!  What better way to have fun than to talk about Ernest T. Bass and his song “Old Aunt Maria.”

We find out where the words to the song came from and what the original name was before it became “Old Aunt Maria.”

Two Chairs No Waiting 195: Leonard Blush

Two Chairs No WaitingHost: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:21:09

We’re gonna be talking about Leonard Blush on the Two Chairs No Waiting podcast this week.  If you don’t know, Leonard was the “Masked Singer” and is somewhat of a legend in Mayberry.  You know…he sang the “Star-Spangled Banner” a the opening of the county insecticide convention.

What we’ll be talking about is a story that Two Chairs No Waiting listener John Foster made me aware of about a Pest Control company  in Florida who’s owner says TAGS was his inspiration in creating his company 24 years ago.  I’m sure that Leonard Blush had something to do with the whole thing.

Two Chairs No WaitingThere was so much information about the connections between Mayberry and The Ghost and Mr. Chicken (TGAMC) that it took two episodes of the podcast to cover it all and part 2 is one of the longest episodes ever of Two Chairs No Waiting to fit it all in.

There are about 19 TAGS/TGAMC connections that our crack research staff..okay it was just me but it sounds better to say it was a staff…was able to find.

I hope you’ll enjoy audio clips from TGAMC and the loads of Mayberry fun in this episode of the podcast.

Two Chairs No WaitingSet in Rachel Kansas, The Ghost and Mr. Chicken is one of my favorite Don Knotts movies.  That could be because so many folks from Mayberry showed up in this, Mr. Knotts first movie after leaving The Andy Griffith Show.

The first is, of course, Don Knotts as Luther Heggs but lets start of with the behinds the scenes folk.  The Ghost and Mr. Chicken was written by Jim Fritzell and Everett Greenbaum.  Andy Griffith also helped re-write the script but is uncredited for his efforts.

That is only the beginning of the connections and fun trivia related to Mayberry and Don Knotts first movie following The Andy Griffith Show.  Turns out there was so much that this will be the first of two episodes of Two Chairs No Waiting that we’ll do on The Ghost and Mr. Chicken.

We’ve spent the last several weeks talking about Lum and Abner so I thought it was time to dive into a Mayberry trivial trivialities session.

I’m sure you’ve enjoyed the episode “Convicts at Large” (episode #74 from 1962/12/10) with Big Maude Tyler, Sally and convicted husband beater Naomi Connors.  In that episode, after Barney had been dancing for a while with Sally, a song began to play and Naomi got so upset that she hit Floyd over the head with a vase.

In this episode of Two Chairs No Waiting, we’ll learn the name of the song and a few more trivialities about it.  Can you guess what we hear on “My Fair Ernest T. Bass” (episode #112 from 1964/02/03) at about 20:10 minutes into the episode?  We’ll, if you haven’t figured it out you will certainly know after to hear this episode of Two Chairs.

Let’s talk about “party line.” No, we aren’t going into political talk.  Let’s talk about telephone party lines and what happened in Mayberry the day Mr. Tucker visited. The episode is “Man in a Hurry” and was the 79th episode aired (January 14, 1963).

I’m sure you remember that Malcolm Tucker’s car broke down on a Sunday about 2 miles outside of Mayberry and he was trying to get it fixed.  He took Gomer’s truck from  Wally’s and Andy had to stop him.  Then he wanted to make a phone call but Andy told him that the Mendelbright sisters (Maude and Cora Mt. Pilot) tie up the phone for 3 or 4 hours every Sunday afternoon.

The reason the phone was tied up was because it was a party line. Do you remember party lines? Are they still around?

Enjoy the show and welcome to Mayberry if you’re just finding us.

We learned about the dingo dog and the Carolina Dog in the last episode of Two Chairs No Waiting so I thought we’d continue the topic by visiting a quote by Barney from “Dogs, Dogs, Dogs (episode #93).  One of the best scenes in that episode is with Andy, Opie, and Barney talking about those dogs being out in a thunder storm.

Of course we learn that dogs don’t get struck by lightning because they’re low to the ground, but what about giraffes? Walking around with their heads in the air…looking out for number one.  Does that really happen?

We also have a special Christmas poem from TAGS fan Ben Sandifer of GMS Productions in Macon, GA.  Ben is a member of the “Lots of Luck to You and Yours” chapter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club.

We learn some strange facts about the dingo dog, thanks to Floyd the barber mentioning dingos in 6th season episode “Aunt Bee Learns to Drive” (#180). Did you know the dingo was indigenous to Australia? Did you know that a breed called the “Carolina Dog” is also known as “American Dingo?”

Wow, the things you can learn when talking about The Andy Griffith Show. Listen to this episode to have fun and even learn a little.

We also have some listener feedback.

Two Chairs No Waiting

As this episode of the podcast is being recorded, it is the 50th anniversary of the first airing of episode number 4 of The Andy Griffith Show titled “Ellie Comes to Town.” That fact and as a result of a voice mail I received this week it seemed fitting to focus just a bit on this episode.

Kevin Burke recapped this episode on his “Burke on Mayberry” podcast(#6) back in April 2008 [a link to his podcast will be given below] but on Two Chairs we’re going to look at a few things that many of you may not have noticed.

We have links to some screen grabs and enlargements of some shots so you can see the things you’ll hear about during Two Chairs No Waiting.

Enjoy the show and tell Goober that Allan says “hey.”
