You requested interviews with some of the good people from Mt. Airy, NC. For those that might not know, Mt. Airy is Andy Griffith’s home town and home to Mayberry Days the last full weekend of September each year.
In the episode you’ll be hearing an interview I did with Russell Hiatt. Russell is the owner of Floyd’s City Barbershop located right next door to the Snappy Lunch on Main Street in Mt. Airy. Russell *is* “Floyd” to those that visit Mt. Airy and he is a wonderful friend to all who know him.
The interview was recorded on April 24, 1998 in the back room of the barbershop so there’s a good bit of conversation in the background but I know you’ll find it worth listening.
