In 2002 an event called Mayberry in the Midwest was held in New Castle, IN. I was lucky enough to be asked to be at the event as Floyd so I was able to go to the panel discussion the event held for the media with the cast members. The cast present were Howard “Ernest T.” Morris, Betty “Thelma Lou” Lynn, James “Jim Lindsey” Best, Maggie “Charlene” Peterson and all four Darling boys; Rodney & Doug Dillard, Dean Webb and Mitch Jayne.
I found an 8mm video tape that I recorded during the panel. The audio isn’t wonderful but it’s good enough and you’ll get to see/hear things that few heard in person. You’ll get a feel for how these wonderful cast members are as “real” people and I know you won’t be disappointed. We’re gonna listen to the first fifteen minutes this week.
This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Don Rickles.”
