TCNW 745: Mayberry Meet-up 2023 Report

Running time: 0:41:23

This past weekend was the Mayberry Meet-up 2023 so I wanted to give y’all a report about what went on and encourage you to join us in the future. So many fun things happen when you’re with fellow Mayberry fans and I want you encourage you to join in with us at some event near you.

This episode may be best consumed as a video version because I show photos and things that I believe you’d enjoy seeing but I think the audio will get you most of the way there so it is, of course, your choice.

I found a video from 10 years ago on “Floyd” singing with Rodney Dillard and the Dillard Band. What an honor that was and I remember it so clearly that I find it hard to believe it was 10 years ago. I think you’ll enjoy it. Floyd sang “House of the Rising Floyd” so it has a Mayberry twist.

We’ll play some trivia, too.

TCNW 743: Prep for Mayberry Meet-up 2023

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:31:09

For the 11th year, Jan and I are heading to Mt. Airy for a weekend of Mayberry fun and the 11th Mayberry Meet-up. I hope you can join us! The reason we started this event was, in part, because Mayberry Days (you really should attend that event) has grown large enough that we wanted to have a chance to visit Mt. Airy and do things that there just isn’t time to do during Mayberry Days. So, the Mayberry Meet-up is a little more slow paced where you can do as much or as little as you’d like.

We will gather at the Mayberry Motor Inn gazebo to watch episodes on Friday night.
On Saturday, if all goes well, Neal Brower should be at The Andy Griffith Museum theater on Saturday afternoon for a session of Professor Brower’s lectures. Details on that will be provided as the event date approaches.

If you haven’t (or even if you have) seen The Andy Griffith Museum, you will want to take time (a few hours) for a tour. It is amazing!

You can visit the museum website at https://www.andygriffithmuseum.org/ or call (336) 786-1604. There is a fee for touring the museum of $8 per person (adult) so keep that in mind. That cost, if on Saturday will include admission to Professor Brower’s lecture.
We will gather at the Mayberry Motor Inn gazebo on Friday and Saturday evenings for visiting and to watch episodes of The Andy Griffith Show together.

TCNW 695: Mayberry Meet-up 2022 Reports

Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:37:44

This year marked the 10th Annual Mayberry Meet-up in Mt. Airy, NC. You might ask, “What is the meet-up” and that would be a good question so I’m gonna try and answer that by letting you hear directly from several who attended the 2022 edition. Hopefully, their reports will be fun for all and will encourage you to make plans to attend a Mayberry event in the near future.

We have eight reports about the Meet-up and three other voice messages from folks so this will be a very fun episode where we can hear from fellow Mayberry fans.

This week also marks the end of fund raising for Mayberry Man: The Series so if you haven’t taken advantage of one of the perks by donating to the series, I encourage you to do so quickly.

Mayberry Man: The Series. It’s gonna be BIG!

This year marked the 9th Annual Mayberry Meetup. It’s hard to believe that what started by chance in 2013 is still going as a yearly event on the Mayberry calendar. Back in 2013 I was heading to Mt. Airy the third weekend in July in order to interview Betty “Thelma Lou” Lynn for the podcast and mentioned if anyone what going to be in town that weekend we could meet-up. Twenty-five or thirty folks showed up and what I thought would be a one time event became an annual one.

Folks started asking me late in 2013 when the Meetup would be in 2014? Thus began the fun and relaxing Mayberry gathering that the Mayberry Meetup has become.

We had a great time at the Two Chairs No Waiting Meetup over at the George Lindsey UNA Film Festival this past weekend. Not only did we get to gather as Mayberry fans and visit with each other, we got to see the documentary film by Chris Hudson, The Mayberry Effect. Chris has been working for almost 4 years on this film and he has done the fans of The Andy Griffith Show proud with his efforts

I give you a full report during the show then we hear from Randy Turner followed by a special report on our wonderful Mayberry friend, Maggie Peterson. She needs our help and what an opportunity we have to show her an example of how much she has meant to us.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Scott McCartor.

TCNW 542: Ron Howard & Opie

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:29:31

On TCNW #480 we featured an interview with Rance Howard, the father of Ron and Clint. During that interview Rance mentioned how Ron got the role of Opie. Ronnie was optioned to appear on a possible CBS series called “Barnaby and Mr. O’Malley” which would have conflicted with Ronnie being able to appear on The Andy Griffith Show. Aaron Ruben put in a second hold for Ronnie to be on The Andy Griffith Show if the other series didn’t sell.

What a different version of Mayberry we would have had if Ronnie hadn’t been Opie.

TCNW 541: Mayberry Meet-up 2019 Report

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:44:12

We had the 7th Annual Mayberry Meet-up in Mt. Airy, NC the weekend of 18-19 July 2019 and it was another wonderful Mayberry family reunion. More than 130 fans of The Andy Griffith Show gathered in the courtyard of the Mayberry Motor Inn around the gazebo on Friday and Saturday evenings. Visiting, talking, Mayberry murder mystery solving, trivia and episode watching were on the agenda. A good time of fellowship was had by all.

I recommend watching the video version of this episode to get a more complete feel of what went on during the weekend. I did my best to describe things so audio podcast listeners wouldn’t feel left out but to paraphrase Briscoe Darling, “Seein’ speaks louder than words” in this case.

Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring Robert Emhardt.
