Two Chairs No Waiting 243: Parley Baer Part 1

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:23:17

It’s been quite some time since we’ve talked about or heard from Mayberry’s Mayor Stoner…”Roy Stoner  … errr … S-T-O-N-E-R…you talk to him”…so it is time to correct that situation.

You are in for a treat thanks to the The National Lum and Abner Society and their June 24, 1995 convention featuring Parley Baer as their special guest.  Tim Hollis, one of the founding “ossifers” of NLAS (along with President Donnie Pitchford and Vice-President Sam Brown), provided Two Chairs No Waiting this wonderful footage of Parley Baer that I know you are going to enjoy.

We get to hear Mr. Baer discuss his start in radio, playing the character Chester on Gunsmoke, and more. As part of talking about Gunsmoke, you’ll hear Howard “Floyd the Barber” McNear as “Doc Adams.”

    Alan, if you send me an address I have. Recording for you. It is a story Parley Baer tells about the actor who played Floyd. It is from “the history of Gunsmoke.”

    Hey Frank,

    I believe the link below will take you to part 1 of a podcast episode I did about that very conversation with Parley Baer.


    If it’s different or you have a better quality version I would LOVE to have a copy of what you found. Thank you so much for thinking of me and the podcast!
