On October 3, 1960, a man and his son walking to the fishing hole first appeared on our televisions with that happy whistling tune. The Andy Griffith Show has not been off the airways since that date and is usually on several times per day in most television markets. Pluto.TV, a free streaming app, even has an entire channel that shows nothing but The Andy Griffith Show 24 hours a day.
While it has been 62 years since the show originally aired, it remains popular with an estimated thirty-thousand fans attending the 33rd Annual Mayberry Days in held in Mt. Airy, NC the last full weekend of September 2022. The ages were from 4 to 96 and all gathered because of their love for series that ended production on April 1, 1968.
We’ll talk about the Anniversary of The Andy Griffith Show and then we’ll hear from SpiritWalker with his Returning to Mayberry report.
