Running time: 0:18:48

The last few episodes we’ve been talking about things that some of the greatest writers of The Andy Griffith Show took the time to share with fans and I’ve certainly been enjoying celebrating these master writers.  The conversation led one of our Two Chairs No Waiting listeners, Joe Gritton, to write in and share his insightful thoughts about writing.

Long time listeners of Two Chairs may well remember Joe Gritton’s name from previous “flashback” episodes of the podcast written by him that featured lost scenes from The Andy Griffith Show with Floyd the barber and door-to-to salesman Bert Miller.  There are a total of 4 episodes of Two Chairs completely credited to Joe’s writing and while Joe calls himself “The Untrained Voice,” I believe you’ll join me in saying his education is worth every penny.

Be sure to head over and listen to Joe’s “flashback” episodes and I hope you enjoy his comments in this episode.

Two Chairs No Waiting 232: Touch of the Pip

by Floyd on April 16, 2013

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:18:02

Back on TCNW #230 I mentioned finding several letters from TAGS writer Harvey Bullock.  Harvey wrote 32 episodes of TAGS and I have several wonderful letters he wrote to me answering questions that fans had asked him and writer Everett Greenbaum.

This episode we’ll find out exactly what is the “pip” and other things like what is Pygmalion and what does it have to do with The Andy Griffith Show.  See….you really do learn things from Mayberry.

I know you’ll enjoy the show.
