In September 2015, a group of tribute artist gathered at Bellevue Baptist Church near Memphis, TN to perform a play called “Ernest T’s Rock Concert.” The play was written by David “Mayberry Deputy” Browning but a portion of the play, a segment called 23rd Psalms, was written by Joe Gritton.
Podcast listeners might remember the name Joe Gritton (known around the Mayberry internet world as “The Untrained Voice” ) as the writer of several episodes of Two Chairs featuring Bert Miller and Floyd Lawson.
The first of Joe’s podcast episodes was way back in episode 17 of Two Chairs called, “Bert Miller Barbershop Flashback” and there have been several more “old time radio” type scripts by Joe since. A link to all is in the notes below.
Back to the play, we’re going to listen to, or watch, “Barney” try to recite the 23rd Psalm as “Floyd” holds the good book on him. Hopefully you’ll see a little of the “preamble to the constitution” or “an officer of the law” come through and have smile & a laugh to brighten your day.
Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Clarence White.“
