TCNW 594: Interview with Danny Vinson

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:44:27

I received a letter from a long time Mayberry friend

I met Danny Vinson several years ago at the George Lindsey Film Festival and right away I knew he was a Mayberry man through and through. Over the years I’ve been able to get to know him better and consider him a friend. I should also mention that Danny is a “working actor” which means he makes a living acting. He’s been in more than 86 movies, had done television, and commercials….but mostly, he’s a great guy.

I know you’re going to enjoy hearing him talk about how he met George “Goober” Lindsey, Don Knotts, Howard Morris, and so much more. As I said, he’s a fan of The Andy Griffith Show and when I meet a fellow fan, there’s always plenty to talk about.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Harry Arnie.”

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:35:01

I received a letter from a long time Mayberry friend and listener to Two Chairs that I thought was BIG….Big, Big. As a result, I’m focusing this episode on this wonderful memory that Johnna from the “Blood Brothers” Chapter of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club located in Macon, MO. Johnna and her fellow blood-brothers make the trek from MO to NC almost yearly. I believe her story is something you’ll enjoy

We’ll also have a little feedback from several other listeners/views of Two Chairs so sit back and enjoy the fun.

The 8th annual Mayberry Meet-up was held in Mt. Airy, NC the weekend of 17-19 July 2020.

TCNW 589: I Know You Won’t Let Me Down

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:26:20

In 2001 the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center in Nashville, TN had it’s first Mayberry event with Don Knott, George Lindsey, Betty Lynn, Howard Morris, Maggie Peterson, Bernard Fox, and the Dillards. I was so lucky to have been not only to attend but to perform as “Floyd the barber” along with these amazing people.

Having performed since 1994 as Floyd, I realized I really didn’t have autographs from most of the cast members so I asked my wonderful wife to take my hardcover Mayberry Memories book and get as many autographs from the Mayberry folks as she could. She was worried something might happen to the book but I told her, “I know you won’t let me down” because I knew she would take care of the book at least as good as I would, if not better.

Listen for the rest of the story.

TCNW 588: Peaceful Easy Feeling

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:29:43

The Andy Griffith Show is my television show of all time. The 249 episodes were aired over eight seasons (1960-1968). It was created by Sheldon Leonard with help/suggestions from Andy Griffith, who starred as Sheriff Andy Taylor. Sheriff Taylor is a widower with a son named Opie, played by Ron Howard.

The Andy Griffith Show never ranked lower than 7th among all television programs during its run. It was ranked #1 in its final season and one of only three shows to ever go out on top (I love Lucy and Seinfeld being the other two).

Let’s see if we can capture some of that peaceful, easy feeling that The Andy Griffith Show promises.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring part 2 of “Ross Elliott.”
