Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Last week was about Don Knotts got his star on Hollywood Walk of Fame. This episode we get to hear bits of the audio from the luncheon held following the star ceremony.

We start off with John Ritter talking about seeing The Andy Griffith Show for the first time. Having gone to church with Andy, he enjoyed the show but recalls that Barney was the character that he loved.

Andy Griffith then speaks about his good friend Don Knotts. They have known one another since they were 30 years old. Andy says that the five years with Don on The Andy Griffith Show were the best years of his life.

Finally, Don  says, “Thank you” to all those that helped him get where he is. I can say, from all of us, THANK YOU Don Knotts.

The audio is a bit hard to hear and you will heard glasses clinking and laughter of those in attendance.  I hope you can enjoy what you can hear as it certainly is rare audio and I wanted to share it with you.
