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.

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.

Christmas time is here so I thought I’d discuss the one and only Christmas episode of The Andy Griffith Show.

“Who’s Been Messin’ Up the Bulletin Board?” Chapter member, Janet brought to our attention recently an inconsistency in the Christmas episode that I’d never noticed so I thought I’d share it with you.  You’ll want visit the Photos link over on our Facebook fan page (http://www.facebook.com/twochairs) to see screen shots of the things I’m talking about in this episode when you have a chance. The magical card switch is easy to see (time 1:51 into episode on season DVD) when you watch the episode so pay attention when you watch the episode this Christmas.

Since next week is Christmas week, I’m going to play Miss Ellie singing “Away in a Manger” to close out to the show.

I hope you enjoy it.

Last week we spoke of TAGSRWCs 30th Anniversary and this week I’m following up with the “Who’s Been Messin’ Up the Bulletin Board?” Chapter’s 18th Anniversary.  I’ll talk a bit about the WBMUTBB Chapter but to give you a heads up, it was the first official online chapter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers club and over time has produced to date 4,966 editions of the WBMUTBB Digest daily newsletter.

Don’t worry…I’m going to throw in some trivia for you to test yourself with as well.  Not just ANY trivia either. This will be a few questions from the “Super Bowl of Mayberry Trivia” held each year during Mayberry Days in Mt. Airy, NC.  These questions are HARD so don’t feel bad if you don’t know them.  I’ll throw in an easy one or two so folks like me can feel good about getting one right.

Mike Peacock of the “Who’s Been Messin’ Up the Bulletin Board?” Chapter provides us with a little more insight into why Elinor Donahue left TAGS after only one season.

Robbie Curlee gives us some behind the scenes information about a near meeting with/sighting of Andy Griffith in Mt. Airy, NC.

We have ONE rating on iTunes but there are only 11 subscribers using iTunes so that’s 9% . “Fife” gave us a 5 star rating and I’m thankful for that. We’d love to have more ratings so if you’re one of the 11 subscribers using iTunes go give us a good rating and a review.

Janet who goes by Thelma Lou on the WBMUTBB Digest had this to say about episode 11: I especially enjoyed your most recent podcast with the interview with Elinor Donahue (though I listen to and enjoy all of them).  And adding “Away in a Manger” at the end was the perfect touch!

Romeena from over at The Taylor’s Front Porch (shownotes will have the link) had this to say: Hey, Floyd.  Great podcast.  Very down-home, friendly and welcoming.  Makes me proud to know ya!

Dave, who goes by “Gomer in Glasgow” wrote in to remind me that he was around early in the life of the WBMUTBB Chapter like Jack Felenzer and Kevin Johnson. And he says: have a Merry Christmas an a Happy New Year……Lotsa Luck ta you an’ yers….Gomer in Glasgow

Brian from Stevensville, MD wrote in to say: Greetings Alan!   What was it like meeting Hoke Howell in Judge Laird’s “Mayberry Room” in Anniston, Alabama? What did he talk about? Curious. Thanks!

Chief Master-At-Arms Paul Balmer presented to me on behalf of the fans of The Andy Griffith Show and of this podcast a flag that was actually flown over the Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. This is BIG for me and I believe it will be to you, the listener, as well.  Paul and the troops serving with him are in our prayers. Thank you, Paul, for this great honor.

Please let us hear from you!  We would love to hear your comments, questions, and Mayberry experiences so send them in either by leaving comments on our website,  e-mail me (floyd@iMayberry.com), or use our toll-free number to add your voice to the podcast. No…I’m not giving out the number here..you have to listen to the podcast to get the number (sneaky ain’t I).
