Back in January 2016, Two Chairs had an amazing series of episode featuring Neal Brower’s interview with The Andy Griffith Show assistant director Bruce Bilson. That original interview was recorded during “Professor Brower’s Class” at Mayberry Days 2011. If you haven’t heard them, check them out starting with part 1 all the way through to part 4. (https://imayberry.com/podcasts/tag/bruce-bilson/)
Bruce Bilson was assistant director of “The Andy Griffith Show” from 1960-62 (I said through 1963 in the episode) and in this series of episodes we’ll hear Neal’s interview from 2015 when Mr Bilson returned to Mayberry Days to share even more of his Mayberry knowledge. This first part of the interview has some amazing stories related to The Andy Griffith Show. The topics he will shed light on are: where and how episodes were made, scripts were refined, and what an amazing team Andy and Don were.
SPECIAL NOTE OF THANKS: Neil & Pat Coleman from the “Remembering Mayberry” chapter of TAGSRWC for providing the recording of Professor Brower’s Class from Mayberry Days 2015.
Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Charlie Ruggles.
