Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:34:02

It was with a heavy heart that I found out about the passing of James Best.  He passed away the evening of April 6, 2015 and he will be greatly missed by his fans all over the world.  James Best is known to Mayberry fans as guitar player Jim Lindsey from two episodes in season one of The Andy Griffith Show but he is loved the world over as Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane from The Dukes of Hazzard.  But those are just two of the hundreds of characters James Best has played during his amazing life.

I thought a nice tribute to him would be to recall an interview he did with Jim Clark from March 31, 1998 issue of The Bullet.  The story was written by Jim Clark and I think it will give you a different look into James Best’s life and career.

I did an interview with Mr. Best way back in episode #38 of this podcast that you might also enjoy.  It’s fairly short so drop by and give it a listen.

Two Chairs No Waiting 325: Allan Melvin

by Floyd on April 7, 2015

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:22:40

Mayberry fans know Allan Melvin…well, they may not know his name but they would know his face and one of the eight different characters he played on The Andy Griffith Show.   Maybe the name “Fred Plummer” from the TAGS episode “Barney’s Uniform” would ring a bell or maybe “Jake” who was Mrs. Lesch’s right hand man in “Barney’s First Car” would trigger a memory.

This interview from November 16, 1997 issue of The Bullet was written by Jim Clark will help you get to know Mr. Melvin and appreciate his contributions to Classic TV and cartoons.

Two Chairs No Waiting 267: News of Cast & Crew – The eBullet January 2014

January 21, 2014

The January 2014 issue of The eBullet, the OFFICIAL newsletter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC), has just been released and the information contained within is something you don’t want to miss. I’d like to thank Jim Clark, the “Presiding Goober” of TAGSRWC, for allowing Two Chairs No Waiting to use some of the content from The eBullet here on the podcast. Jim works throughout the year to find Mayberry information for the fans and I am very thankful for being allowed to help spread the news he delivers.

Be sure to check out the latest issue of The eBullet and read all the information for yourself. You can also go back over 10 years to see past issues of The eBullet…for FREE! That’s right! Jim provides all this amazing information for free to all the fans of The Andy Griffith Show out there so be sure to subscribe to the newsletter so you never miss an issue.

Also, shop at Weaver’s Department Store and support TAGSRWC in the process.

We also hear from Larry by voicemail discussing Opie’s ability to curve a rock from right to left so well at such a young age. He might give Ernest T. a run for best rock thrower in the county.

Two Chairs No Waiting 266: The Bullet Volume 1 Issue 1

January 14, 2014

I was looking through the archives here at the Two Chairs No Waiting headquarters and found my back issues of The Bullet. The Bullet was the official newsletter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) for years until it moved to an electronic version (The eBullet) back in the early 2000’s.

I thought it would be great to share the very first issue of The Bullet with you and give you a feel for where TAGSRWC began. We have so much to be thankful to TAGSRWC for because without the club I truly believe we would not have the podcast, websites, events, and products related to The Andy Griffith Show that we have today. Thank you, Jim Clark and all the founders of TAGSRWC for keeping Mayberry alive.

George Jr. was on an episode of “Shop ’til You Drop” that aired on the Game Show Network in December where he won a trip to the Bahamas. The fun thing was, I had to come home early one day from work and what just happened to be on the TV…this very episode of “Shop ’til You Drop!”
