Two Chairs No WaitingNovember 29, 2011 marks the 20th Anniversary of the WBMUTBB Chapter here online!!

Back in April of 1990, Bob Bravetti was on the Prodigy computer network and he started the topic on the Prodigy “bulletin board” system with a subject of “The Andy Griffith Show.”  After a few replies and a little chatter, the subject died off.

In the early fall of 1990 I, your podcast host, signed up for the Prodigy network and started a “subject” on the “bulletin board” system called “Andy Griffith Show.” After that first message I was joined, over time, by 57 other folks (including Bob) who enjoyed talking about Mayberry.

On the first anniversary of that first message, we decided to make our group of TAGS fans a “real” chapter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) so we had people send in their suggestions for a chapter name and “Who’s Been Messin’ Up the Bulletin Board?” (WBMUTBB) was born. A note requesting the chapter name was sent to TAGSRWC HQ on November 4, 1991 and official verification of our chapter arrived by mail on November 29, 1991 in the form of out Chapter Charter from TAGSRWC Headquarters in Nashville.

The WBMUTBB Chapter expanded from just being on Prodigy to being on the whole Internet and thus began the WBMUTBB Digest.  The format is a Digest style email mailing list.  Members are allowed to post messages to the list and several emails are combined into one “digest” and then delivered to members. (Usually one email per day.)  There are currently 1,527 members of the WBMUTBB chapter and their have been 5,355 issues of the WBMUTBB Digest through November 29, 2011.

I hope you will join the fun of a daily e-mail in your inbox all about Mayberry.  It’s easy to sign up.

Follow me on Twitter if you use twitter. I’ve been posting Mayberry things there as another way to let folks know about The Andy Griffith Show.

Two Chairs No Waiting

There was recently an online chapter meeting of the “Who’s Been Messin’ Up the Bulletin Board (WBMUTBB)?” Chapter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club.  As part of that meeting, chapter members discussed what Don Knotts had meant to them as we drew close to the 4th anniversary of his passing away back on February 24, 2006.

In order of appearance you will hear from WBMUTBB? members “Aunt Bee (of IL)”, Mike Peacock, Jewell Kutzer, Ron “Emmett” Blankenship, MariEllen, and Vicki Pillow.  These wonderful Mayberry fans share what many of us feel and enjoy as we watch the performances of Mr. Knotts.

We also have a voice mail and some e-mail listener feedback for you to enjoy.
