TCNW 522: Mrs. Mendlebright

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:18:46

Randy Turner is bringing us a great report about J. Pat O’Malley this episode to start off the podcast. Mr. O’Malley appeared as Oscar Fields on The Andy Griffith Show but Randy tells us so much more.

Mr. Fields was courting Mrs. Mendlebright in the episode “Up in Barney’s Room” so it got me wondering about Mrs. Mendlebright herself. The actress who played Mrs. Mendlebright was named Enid Markey and I found out some interesting things about her.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring J. Pat O’Malley.

TCNW 516: Nostalgia

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:32:15

What is nostalgia? The dictionary defines it as “a sentimental or wistful yearning for the happiness felt in a former place, time, or situation.”

The nostalgia part of this podcast was recorded by me back on August 26, 2017. It was recorded for use as part of “The Mayberry Effect” film being produced by Chris Hudson. Chris came to Two Chairs headquarters (my house) and stayed overnight with us in order to interview me for the documentary. As part of that, he asked if I had an episode of Two Chairs that was about nostalgia. I told him I didn’t but, to quote Goober, “I’ll do it.” So I recorded what you’ll hear in this episode.

Before we get to all that, we’ll hear from Randy Turner and this week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Sheldon Golomb. Sheldon went by Sheldon Collins during his time on The Andy Griffith Show and had a successful career acting but you might be surprised by what he does today.

I love The Andy Griffith Show and it doesn’t take much to get me talking about it to anyone who’ll listen. You may have noticed that after 514 podcast episodes so I’m not telling you much.

This week, Randy Turner got me watching The Andy Griffith Show episode “Guest of Honor” because of the report we’ll lead off with. Guest of Honor is a really fun episode with several quotes that are hard to forget. Let’s spend a few minutes walking through the episode and hear a few of the lines and segments that are etched in my memory.

TCNW 513: Andy and Allen

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:18:28

A podcast listener, Dixie, wrote in to tell me about spotting Andy Griffith and Allen on an episode of the Amazon Prime series “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.”

Andy and Allen is not about Andy and me. I spell my name differently. This episode is about Steve Allen, Andy Griffith and a The Andy Griffith Show “alumni” sighting by the daughter of than very alumni of The Andy Griffith Show.

We also ran across a few clips from The Steve Allen Show featuring Andy because of our research into the clip Dixie spotted. It’s BIG! So big, in fact, you might want to watch the video version of this episode just to see the clips.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Bob Denver.
