Wow…249!  Two Chairs No Waiting has reached an episode total matching the number of episodes of The Andy Griffith Show and it’s time to celebrate that achievement by visiting some of our guests from past episodes of Two Chairs.

Guest from the very early days of Two Chairs were kind enough to agree to drop back by our little corner of Mayberry and visit with us.  We have a hole mess of folks so I’m just going to list them in the order they appeared with links to their episodes listed below in the “Related Links” section.

In appearance order: Al Gandolfi, Tim Pettigrew, Debbie Miles,  Darrel Miles, Samantha Miles, Tim White, Bob Mundy, Alma Venable, Kenneth Junkin, Rodney Dillard, Maggie Peterson, Jeff Branch, and David Browning.  Ain’t that BIG!  Please note that the appearance order is relative only to when I caught up with each one…they’re all number one in my book.

I hope you enjoy the show and thank you for joining me on this special episode.  “Aww….Big ain’t the word for it.”

This is the final segment of the 1991 Opryland press conference. I took a couple of weeks off between the third segment of the press conference and this one. If you missed any of the first 3 part, or have forgotten them, you’ll want to drop back by and give a listen to episodes 73, 76, & 77.

George Lindsey, Don Knotts, Betty Lynn, Maggie Peterson, Rodney Dillard, and Jack Prince all have things to say during this segment.  Some of the question are hard to hear and the audio isn’t perfect but we’re just lucky to have this tape recording of the press conference.

Many thanks to Jim Clark, Presiding Goober of “The Andy Griffith Show” Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) headquarters for allowing us to have this piece of history to share with all the fans.

Opryland in Nashville, TN presented a Mayberry Reunion back in 1991.  In this episode we hear from some of the cast of The Andy Griffith Show that were present for a press conference held just before they began the reunion shows held over the course of a weekend.  We’ll have more clips from this press conference in the coming episodes so be sure to stick around.

The question being addressed in this show is, “Do you feel you were typecast because of your role on The Andy Griffith Show? Also, address any negatives or positives related to your role.”

You’ll hear the following folks answering these questions in this order: Rodney “Darling” Dillard, George “Goober” Lindsey, Betty “Thelma Lou” Lynn, Maggie “Charlene” Peterson, Hal “Otis” Smith, and Jack “Rafe Hollister” Prince.  George and Betty speak more than one time each but I’m sure you’ll recognize their voices as you listen.

We’ve had wonderful segments of Two Chairs No Waiting during the Rodney Dillard interview and this final segment is no exception.

Our discussion turns more to The Andy Griffith Show and how being on the show has impacted The Dillards over the years.  The feeling of “family” that The Dillards have when performing for audiences because the fans “know” them from The Andy Griffith Show.

Rodney also talks about being on the set between shots and how The Andy Griffith Show was different than other shows on which they appeared.

Welcome back to Two Chairs No Waiting!  We’re continuing our interview with Rodney Dillard and learn about a few appearances that he and Doug have made on movies and TV that most fans may not know about.

Rodney tells us about things he’s been working on recently including his Mayberry Values in Todays World presentations across the country. This is a ministry that gives practical applications to what it means to be a Christian.

The discussion goes a good bit into this topic so take this as fair warning for anyone offended by frank discussion of walking through life as a  Christian.  I don’t believe that most listeners need that heads up but I felt like I should give one.  I’d love to hear from you about this topic and have a discussion however you feel.

Welcome to the Two Chairs No Waiting – Andy Griffith Show Fan Podcast!  I’m glad to have you join me for part 2 of my interview with Rodney Dillard.

In this episode discuss the influence that The Dillards had on artists such as The Eagles, The Byrds, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Dan Fogelberg, Linda Ronstadt, Elton John, Ricky Skaggs, and several other well known artist.

We discuss the way The Dillards were able to “push the envelop” with the music they played and how they were able to combine different styles of music into their music.

I believe you’ll hear things that many fans of The Andy Griffith Show haven’t heard about our Darling boys and hopefully you’ll understand and be even more thankful for the artist who are The Dillards on a different level.

Rodney Dillard, the guitar playing Darling boy, joins us to talk about The Dillards, the Darling boys and much more. In part one we speak about how The Dillards got their start in the music business. In future episodes Rodney will talk about being on The Andy Griffith Show and many other topics.

Because of my association with The Andy Griffith Show, I have seen The Dillards perform many times and I’ve heard them take and answer many questions from audiences.  I heard things in this interview I’d never heard before and it was a great pleasure being able to dive into the career of this influential  bluegrass band.

How influential you might ask.  The Dillards were inducted into the International Bluegrass Music Hall of Fame on October 1, 2009 and have directly or indirectly influenced artists such as The Eagles, The Byrds, The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Dan Fogelberg, Linda Ronstadt, Elton John, Ricky Skaggs, and several other well known artist.
