TCNW 435: Neal Brower Interviews Harvey Bullock 2002 Part 4

Two Chairs No Waiting

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:21:31

This is our third episode with Neal Brower interviewing writer Harvey Bullock at Mayberry Days in 2002. Harvey Bullock (June 4, 1921 – April 23, 2006) wrote 31 episodes of The Andy Griffith Show, 21 episodes of Gomer Pyle U.S.M.C. and co-wrote the TV movie Return to Mayberry with Everett Greenbaum. So much of what we, as fans, know of the town of Mayberry was created by the mind of this amazing man.

The audio isn’t perfect but this content is something you will not want to miss. Harvey didn’t seem to want to hold the mic up to his face so he’s a little hard to hear. From time to time there are sound artifacts that I’ve cleaned up as best I could so they wouldn’t be distracting.

In this episode Harvey discusses his joy at being one of the writers on The Andy Griffith Show, his favorite scene and how it wrote itself with him just sitting there as an observer.

You will not want to miss any of this series.

Bonus:  This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Cheerio Meredith.

    Hi Allen really enjoyed these episodes with Harvey bullock, it really makes you realize this show would not have worked , without these forces coming together st the right magical time. Not only the actors were great and actresses but the writing was also great. And together it was magic , and even today
    They still work, it’s the one show that when my family comes over. We will grab a plate of food and head for the couch and laugh the whole time ! Keep up the great work your fellow mayberian belvis morgan
