Two Chairs No Waiting

Each year at Mayberry Days in Mount Airy, NC fans have a chance to attend Professor Brower’s Lecture.  Neal Brower works his heart out each year to provide Mayberry fans a memorable and special time visiting with those who have touched our lives though The Andy Griffith Show.  In September 2010 Neal’s guests were Jim Clark and Ken Beck.

Jim Clark is the “Presiding Goober” and one of the founding members of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC).

Ken Beck is a journalist who worked for “The Tennessean” where he edited the “Sunday Showcase” until he stepped away from his 31 years with the Nashville, TN paper.

Together Beck & Clark have touched Mayberry fans everywhere with their books about The Andy Griffith Show.  I know you’ll enjoy hearing from them as “Professor” Brower draws wonderful information from them.

Neal, of course, has a wonderful book of his own called “Mayberry 101” that you will not want to miss.  Neal was the focus of two episodes of this podcast so after you finish listening to him interview Beck & Clark, head back to episodes 50, 51, and 52 to hear his story.

    Fantastic Interview, now we know! Thanks Jan for capturing this. It is like being there and without this recording, this would not have been possible. Lots of questions answered in this interview. I often wondered how the name “TAGSRWC” was created. My first impression was this was a mouthfull to say . LOL. ejoyed it, on to part II.
