Running time: 0:16:10

Last week we heard from Floyd and Bert all about Barney and Thelma Lou’s first meeting at Wilton Blair’s funeral and the romance that followed.  That was some hay ride.

As we left the pair, they were sitting in the barber shop beginning to talk about Mr. Schwamp and Nellie.

Let’s drop by the barber shop and see what other gossip they might be sharing about the towns people of Mayberry.   Let’s join them now and hear what happens.  Listen…..

 

Thank you to writer Joe Gritton has provided a wonderful script featuring Mayberry barber, Floyd Lawson, and door-to-door salesman, Bert Miller.

What if The Andy Griffith Show had been on the radio?  I mean old time radio?   Wouldn’t it be great to discover that there were unknown scenes with the folks from Mayberry starring in them?  

For the next two episode of Two Chairs, we’ll explore that thought.  Writer Joe Gritton has provided a wonderful script featuring Mayberry barber, Floyd Lawson, and door-to-door salesman, Bert Miller.  The episode is done in the spirit of Old Time Radio so sit back and use your mind’s eye to picture the goings on in our hometown of Mayberry, NC.

Part 1 of “Mayberry After Mid-day” we find Bert Miller walking down the sidewalk of Main Street heading from the Mayberry Grande toward the courthouse.  As Bert nears Floyd’s barber shop, he slows down and considers sitting down for a rest on the bench outside the barber shop window.  Let’s join them now in Mayberry and hear what happens.  Listen…..
