TCNW 789: Mayberry Filming Locations

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:35:48

In early April 2024, members of the Mayberry Chapter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) lead a group on a trip to the Los Angeles, California area. They visited major filming locations for TAGS including Franklin Canyon, Red Studios and the Desilu (Forty Acres) backlot. They also discovered other filming locations that haven’t, so far as anyone is aware, been identified before such as the baseball field where Opie’s Mayberry team played Mt. Pilot and the gas station location where the Taylors & Goober stopped for gas in “Goober and the Auto Show.” They were able to sit in the plane used when Aunt Bee learned to fly and to see where that episode was filmed, Whiteman Airport. They met up with several cast or crew members including Ruta Lee, Bruce Bilson, Leroy McNees and Joy Ellison. They also met with kids of cast and crew to include Dixie Griffith (Andy’s daughter), Andy Bullock (TAGS writer Harvey Bullock’s son), and Kit McNear (Howard “Floyd” McNear’s son).

The person responsible for locating and identifying previously unidentified location was Codie Sloan and we are so fortunate to have him sharing his first hand experience of this amazing trip. Codie wanted everyone to know he’s not trying to toot his own horn with his report but hopes that through it all listening or watching can share in the excitement he, and the others on the trip, experienced.

Thank you, Codie, for letting us all travel along with you virtually.

Stick around after the report for some Mayberry trivia and see how many questions you can answer.

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:33:27

We received some sad news today here at Two Chairs No Waiting headquarters. The wonderful Elizabeth MacRae passed away on Monday May 27, 2024. She was 88 years old when she passed but she will always be remembered by Mayberry fans as a compassionate lady who enjoyed life and shared her joy with others.

To celebrate her life, we’ll listen to or watch (depending on how you partake of the episode) her performance at the 2006 Mayberry Days Col. Tim’s Talent Time show. Hosted by David “Mayberry Deputy” Browning with Allan “Floyd” Newsome on hand as backup Elizabeth took the stage as Lou Ann Poovie to sing “That Old Black Magic” for the assembled crowd of fans. It was an amazing performance that you have to hear to believe. I hope you’ll enjoy it as much as she enjoyed making the crowd smile.

We have some trivia to correct from last weeks episode where I provided a bit of incorrect trivia. Then we’ll play a little trivia to make up for the mistake.

The town members become screen-struck and busily go about giving Mayberry a face-lift, changing everything the producer liked.

TCNW 785: Clint Howard Turns 65

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:35:05

Jan and I were invited to attend a surprise birthday party for Clint Howard on April 20, 2024 out in Burbank, California. What an honor it was to be asked and there was no way we were going to pass on something like that. Clint’s wife, Kat, was who invited us and we couldn’t believe it was happening. We made very sure not to mention anything about traveling to California because we didn’t want to be like Barney and let word get out about the gold truck, I mean the party, and let Clint find out.

This episode I’ll give you a taste of what we experienced so you can go along for the ride with us.

Then we’ll play some Mayberry trivia submitted by trivia expert Paul Mulik.
