TCNW 737: Old Time Radio – Mayberry After Mid-day

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:27:12

Last week, we heard from “Floyd” who did a flashback to a time he and Bert Miller talked about going into business together. That was originally released on July 13, 2010 and was the first time I had done anything that reminded me of those old time radio (OTR) programs. It got me thinking about doing other episodes with Floyd & Bert that sound like “lost” OTR versions of The Andy Griffith Show.

It was June 5, 2012 (episode 191 & 192) before the first OTR “lost” episode was made. Writer and Two Chairs listener, Joe Gritton, provided me the script featuring Mayberry barber, Floyd Lawson, and door-to-door salesman, Bert Miller. A little over 4 years later, on July 5, 2016 (#384) I re-released the two episodes as a speical edition created to sound like an actual episode of The Andy Griffith Show from beginning to end with opening music and everything, no Two Chairs intro or anything.

Mayberry After Mid-day” begins with Bert Miller walking down the sidewalk of Main Street heading from the Mayberry Grande toward the courthouse. As Bert nears Floyd’s barber shop, he slows down and considers sitting down for a rest on the bench outside the barber shop window but decides to head on inside. Join them now in Mayberry and hear what happens.

As a note, we lost Joe Gritton last year and I am so grateful and thankful to have these OTR episodes to remember and honor him. These type episodes are hard to do and take a long time to perform and edit together but they are some of my favorite Two Chairs episodes. We’ll have another OTR Mayberry episode next week so come back if you enjoy it.
