TCNW 773: Runaway Kid

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:29:32

This time we visit the fourth episode filmed of The Andy Griffith Show and dig into the “odd facts known by few” related to “Runaway Kid.”

Plot Summary of Runaway Kid:
Andy finds himself in a dilemma after teaching Opie a lesson about the importance of always keeping your word. Opie has made a sacred trust not to divulge that his new friend, George “Tex” Foley, is a runaway. Andy must grapple with violating Opie’s trust or returning the boy to his family and explaining that there is always an exception to every rule.

There are some, what I think, fun tidbits related to this particular episode so I know you’ll enjoy it.

We hear from “Floyd” about an upcoming Mayberry related event in Scottsburg, IN and then we play some really fun Mayberry trivia submitted by trivia expert Paul Mulik.

TCNW 772: Catching Up With Folks

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:36:11

I’ve had several folks send me things related to previous episodes and I feel like it’s time to catch up with them. Mayberry folks are some of the best people you’ll ever meet and we have several “trained noticers” in the audience that we’ll hear from.

We get some answers related to some “Who Said It” questions Jan and I asked in the last episode. Several folks sent in answers and I’m very thankful to hear from all of you but I’ll have to pick a few representatives.

Larry wrote in to point out something unusual about the original air date of the episode “A Date For Gomer” and that many, if not all, of the books on Mayberry get it wrong.

Paul Mulik sent in some great “Who Said It” questions with a bonus question that will make you scratch your head. And finally, I’ll remind everyone of upcoming Mayberry events you may want to plan on attending.

Two Chairs No Waiting

This episode we dive into the second episode of The Andy Griffith Show, “The Guitar Player.” The original Air Date: 1960/10/17. The writers are Jack Elinson and Charles Stewart. It was directed by Don Weis. We meet the character Jim Lindsey for the first of two times. Jim, of course, is played by the wonderful James Best. Mr. Best appeared often at Mayberry related events over the years before his passing on April 6, 2015.

We play some Mayberry Song Trivia we began last episode and see how we can do. Hopefully you’ll have fun.

We’ll wrap up by trying to identify “Who Said It” and we’re joined by Mrs. Weaver herself. Jump in where you can and hang on.

TCNW 770: The Manhunt

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:44:30

This episode we’ll be digging into the second episode of The Andy Griffith Show, “The Manhunt.” The original Air Date: 1960/10/10. The writers are Jack Elinson and Charles Stewart. It was directed by Don Weis. We see Otis for the fist time and we here the phrase from Barney that, I believe, Mayberry fans may quote more than any other, “It’s Big!…..Ah, big ain’t the word for it.”

I make a correct from last weeks episode to clear up something that was once believed to be true but is now known to be a misconception. (During this episode I erroneously reported that a publicity photo of a young Frances Bavier is seen on the wall of the Taylor living room as Andy walks from the kitchen to the front door. It will be seen in several first season episodes. As pointed out by Randy Turner in his fantastic collection of essays, Mayberry Firsts, the picture is in fact a print of the painting Child With An Apple by the French artist of the 18th century Jean-Baptiste Greuze.)

We play some Mayberry Trivia to see how we can do, just for fun.

We’ll wrap up by hearing from some of you.

TCNW 769: The New Housekeeper 2024

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:34:50

I’m going to try and do something different for a while. I’ve started to do this before but always faded off on it and didn’t follow through. We’re going to try and talk about one episode of The Andy Griffith Show most every week followed by some trivia and then talk about some cast birthdays.

That’s the plan but, we’ll see how well the plan survives the year. ha ha

This episode we start with the first episode of The Andy Griffith Show which is called The New Housekeeper. It first aired on October 3, 1960 and started everything that we still celebrate to this day.

NOTE: During this episode I erroneously reported that a publicity photo of a young Frances Bavier is seen on the wall of the Taylor living room as Andy walks from the kitchen to the front door. It will be seen in several first season episodes. As pointed out by Randy Turner in his fantastic collection of essays, Mayberry Firsts, the picture is in fact a print of the painting Child With An Apple by the French artist of the 18th century Jean-Baptiste Greuze.

We play some Mayberry Trivia to see how we can do, just for fun.

Finally, we check how which cast members have birthdays between January 1st and 19th to remember them all with smiles and joy.
