I really enjoy Old Time Radio (OTR) and that’s one of the reasons I did Two Chairs No Waiting #384 as an OTR special.  That love made me really enjoy a bit of feedback I got from Jim Romig about OTR and Mayberry.  We’ll talk all about that on this episode.

We’ll also talk about a question related to Andy’s hair color and try to get to the root of the question.

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 lost episodes with our Mayberry friends in them?

Four years ago “Mayberry After Mid-day” was released here on Two Chairs but it was across two episodes (#191 &192). This speical edition is created to sound like an actual episode of The Andy Griffith Show from beginning to end.

Writer Joe Gritton provided a wonderful script featuring Mayberry barber, Floyd Lawson, and door-to-door salesman, Bert Miller. Sit back and use your mind’s eye to picture the goings on in our hometown of Mayberry, NC while listening to this “old time radio” program.

We begin “Mayberry After Mid-day” with 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. Join them now in Mayberry and hear what happens.

Two Chairs No Waiting 130: From Pine Ridge to Mayberry

April 5, 2011

Opie Cates was on “Lum and Abner” as one of the characters but there are several connections between Pine Ridge, Arkansas and Mayberry, North Carolina. On Two Chairs No Waiting episode 129 we heard audio of Lum Eddards (played by Chester Lauck) and Abner Peabody (played by Norris Goff) interacting with Opie Taylor’s namesake, Opie Cates, and I’m sure Mayberry fans thought it was interesting but in this episode we’ll go into even greater detail.
