TCNW 560: Mayberry Like It’s 1999

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:31:44

I’ve been looking through my files lately to see what treasures I might find. I recently ran across some articles from 1999 from papers and magazines and I thought they might be fun to share with you.

I found a really nice story from May 16, 1999 that ran in The Orlando Sentinel called “Mayberry 101 is a studious look at a classic show.” We’ve hear from Neal Brower many times here on the podcast but this is from back when he first put out his amazing book so we’ll hear what the Sentinel thought about it.

I also found a story from Jan 8, 1999 that was in USA Today Weekend titled “The Bible according to Barney Fife.” This was in the very eary days of the Mayberry Bible study and went a long way in helping spread the word about the study originated by Joey Fann and Brad Grasham.

I also found a couple of other fun things so I hope you enjoy yourself partying like it’s 1999.

TCNW 549: Talk of Mayberry Days 2019

Two Chairs No Waiting
Two Chairs No Waiting

Host: Allan Newsome
Running time: 0:29:37

Mayberry Days 2019 is fast approaching and The Andy Griffith Show is everywhere. This past week TAGSRWC’s own Neal Brower appeared on “Talk of the Town” aired on C19TV. Talk of the Town is original programming produced by Cleveland Community College in Shelby, NC and airing on Cleveland County NC Spectrum Cable Channel 19.

Neal contacted Two Chairs No Waiting HQ because he thought I might enjoy watching the episode and boy was he right. During the interview, Neal talked about much more that Mayberry Days. Neal always has great information about The Andy Griffith Show and this interview was no exception.

The interview was so good that you host jumped into action and contacted C19TV to ask permission to rebroadcast the segment with Professor Brower and they were kind enough to grant the request.

I know you’re going to enjoy hearing the interviewer Steve Putnam and Neal talking Mayberry.

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