George “Goober” Lindsey was a wonderful man and a great friend to so many of the fans of The Andy Griffith Show. I tell you this so you’ll understand what you’re about to hear/see in this episode of Two Chairs.

Each year, several of George’s friends would gather in Nashville and take George out to eat to celebrate his birthday. It started as a small group but over the years it grew into quite a large gathering.  The meal was at lunch time and most of those present would gather at the home of Jim Clark, TAGSRWC presiding Goober, to shower George with gag gifts and adoration.

Following the gifts, George would often bless those in attendance with memories of Mayberry and some words of wisdom from “The Goob.” He did just that in this recording from 2010 and I know you’re going to enjoy hearing George as well as those present commenting on Mayberry, quoting episodes, Gunsmoke, Alfred Hitchcock, and so much more.

The fine folks over at iMayberryCommunity.com have been having some wonderful discussions and one of them really hit the spot.  This week marked one year since the passing of Mayberry’s Goober, George Lindsey, so I thought it was fitting that one of the discussions going on over at the community was about Goober’s age on The Andy Griffith Show.  There is some conflicting information given that I had never taken the time to piece together in my mind but the big thinkers on the forum at iMayberryCommunity did just that.

Let’s unravel the mystery of Goober’s age and enjoy some special memories along the way.

The 15th Annual George Lindsey UNA Film Festival was held in Florence, Alabama on March 1-3, 2012.  The kickoff of the festival included the dedication of a new Black Box theater named after George Lindsey (The George Lindsey Theatre) and the Ernest Borgnine Performance Hall ribbon cutting. Two Chairs featured George’s presentation at this even back in episodes 187 and 188 and it was certainly special.  If you haven’t heard those episodes, head on over and check them out.

What we haven’t heard yet are the words spoken by Ernest Borgnine during that same presentation.  I’ve delayed using this because it isn’t 100% “Mayberry” but I do believe fans will enjoy hearing a man like Mr. Borgnine speak about his friend, George.  You will hear the genuine love that Mr. Borgnine had for George Linsday and I think you’ll learn a little more about this man who did so much to help others.

The 16th Annual George Lindsey UNA Film Festival is coming up in just a few weeks (February 28-March 2, 2013) so we can all be proud of our friend, George…..just like Ernest Borgnine. He’s still helping others achieve their dreams.  At-a-boy George!

Let’s continue our tribute to George Lindsey which began in episode 187 of Two Chairs No Waiting.  Mr. Lindsey passed away on May 6, 2012 but he will never be forgotten by his family or his friends.

The 15th Annual George Lindsey UNA Film Festival held in Florence, Alabama on March 1-3, 2012 saw as part of the event the dedication of a new theater named after Mr. Lindsey.  The George Lindsey Theatre and the Ernest Borgnine Performance Hall ribbon cutting was a special event and as part of it we saw and heard from George as he did a question and answer session with those in attendance.

The first part of that presentation was in last weeks podcast and we conclude George’s portion in this episode.

The news that George Lindsey passed away on May 6, 2012 hit hard to Mayberry fans all around the country.  I thought to ease the hurt we would take some time to celebrate his life by hearing from directly from him.

The 15th Annual George Lindsey UNA Film Festival was held in Florence, Alabama on March 1-3, 2012 and as part of the festival include the dedication of a new Black Box theater named after Mr. Lindsey himself.  The George Lindsey Theatre and the Ernest Borgnine Performance Hall ribbon cutting was a special event. The most special part was seeing George and getting a chance to listen to him as he spoke at the dedication ceremony.

Part 1 of Mr. Lindsey’s presentation and some memories from listeners will bring you back for more….just like George did.

This wonderful interview comes to us from fellow Mayberry fan, Bart Boatwright.  George Lindsey interviews authors Jim Clark and Ken Beck about their book on The Andy Griffith Show on Nashville Now in 1985.  The two of them helped George write his own book, “Goober in a Nut-Shell”, which? was released 10 years later in 1995.

For those that may not know who Jim Clark and Ken Beck are, they were mentioned in last weeks podcast episode  as the authors of The Andy Griffith Show Book.  That’s not the only book they wrote together related to The Andy Griffith Show so drop by over at Weaver’s to check out more of them like Aunt Bee’s Mayberry Cookbook, Aunt Bee’s Delightful Desserts, Mayberry Memories, and so many others.

Jim Clark is also the “Presiding Goober” of The Andy Griffith Show Rerun Watchers Club (TAGSRWC) and the writer/editor/publisher of The eBulletThe eBullet is the official Newsletter of TAGSRWC.
