Two Chairs No Waiting 285: 40 Acres Lot

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:22:58

This episode we’ll tackle a few questions from listeners and hear feedback from others. The main topic that I believe will interest you is our discussion of the 40 Acres backlot where the external shots from The Andy Griffith Show were filmed.

There’s a GREAT website devoted to 40 Acres called RetroWeb.com. Fans of The Andy Griffith Show and many other TV shows film in the 1950’s and 1960’s will enjoy the trip through memory lane when you take the virtual tour of the backlot created on the RetroWeb site. You may also notice homes and locations used on a little movie called “Gone With the Wind” if you look around a bit.

If 40 Acres doesn’t interest you, then stick around and you can at least learn more about me (your host) as I answer a question about how I got started as Floyd. If that really interest you, check out the interview done with me on back in episodes 144 thru 146. The link is in the notes below.

    Allan, I got behind on my e-mails, so I’m a week and a half late watching the video version of the podcast on 40 Acres. I was already familiar with Retroweb and have examined that site in the past, but I went back and spent some time on it again after I finished the podcast. That site is a great resource, and I find 40 Acres fascinating! I couldn’t find an aerial view that clearly labeled the location of Wally’s filling station, but I think I figured it out. It makes me sad to think that all the exterior sets for TAGS have long since been demolished. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if those sets had been preserved and fans could go there and walk the actual streets of Mayberry and sit a spell on the Taylors’ front porch? I would think that could have been a great tourism draw. Ah, well, we can dream, can’t we?
