In this episode, we’re going to be hearing from Bernard Fox. You know him best as Malcolm Merriweather but to non-Mayberry fans (and perhaps even to Mayberry fans) his best-known role was as the warlock physician Dr. Bombay on Bewitched.
Mr. Fox is a “fifth generation performer” and was born with the name Bernard Lawson in Port Talbot, Glamorgan, Wales. Maybe he’s distant kin to our own Floyd Lawson. Bernard has been married to his wife Jacqueline since 1961.
This interview was recorded on 26 June 1998 in Kingsport, TN. If you listened near the beginning of the interview we are interrupted by Howard “Ernest T.” Morris. The folks talking in the background are Maggie “Charlene Darling” Peterson, The Dillards (a.k.a. The Darling boy), Howard Morris, Elinor “Miss Ellie” Donahue, and Jean “the Fun Girl” Carson.
