    Mayberry Days Trivia 2020 Qualifying Round

    Mayberry Days Trivia 2020 Qualifying Round

    Two Chairs No Waiting







    Host: Allan NewsomeRunning time: 0:30:07







    What great memories I have from Mayberry Days 2020. It was the 31st Mayberry Days held on the 30th anniversary of the first Mayberry Days and just a week before the 60th Anniversary of The Andy Griffith Show. While the attendance for 2020 was not what it normally is because of the Covid-19 issues, it was a welcome time of normalcy in what has been an unusual year. In this episode we’ll work through the Qualifying Round questions and answers of the 2020 World Championship of Mayberry Trivia.







    The qualifying round is just to qualify for the Finals of Mayberry trivia. If you qualify, you end up facing past Mayberry Days Trivia champions and other qualifiers from this round and the “kids” trivia winners.







    The Grand Champion of Mayberry Trivia for 2020 was, for the 5th time in a row, Jim Sherrill. Jim has been the champion in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and now in 2020. He deserves a lot of credit for his education and the speed of his buzzer finger. We’ll go though the questions from the finals in a future episode.







    This episode also marks the start of year 12 +1 of Two Chairs….I’m just being cautious.







    Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring part 2 of his review of “No Time for Sergeants.”

    Trey Meets Andy

    Trey Meets Andy

    Two Chairs No Waiting







    Host: Allan NewsomeRunning time: 0:28:51







    On episode #103 of Two Chairs (Andy Griffith Statue Part 4) a young man called into the show with a voice mail about meeting Andy Griffith (about the 8 minute mark) to help us celebrate the 50th Anniversary of The Andy Griffith Show. The young fellows name is Trey Miller. Ten years later, on the 60th Anniversary of The Andy Griffith Show (October 3, 2020), Trey created a special episode of his video blog called “Globetrotting with Trey” sharing the same experience but with more detail.







    I contacted Trey to see if I could share his story with you. I think you’ll be, just like me, imagining being right there with Trey as he meets Andy and share his excitement in meeting “the man himself.” It’s an event he’ll never forget and one I’ve never forgotten since hearing that story 10 years ago.







    Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “No Time for Sergeants.”

    Mayberry Man & Mayberry Days 2020

    Two Chairs No Waiting







    Host: Allan NewsomeRunning time: 0:41:55







    Here we are at our 600th episode of Two Chairs No Waiting. This BIG event is happening right after a month of filming the Mayberry Man movie & Mayberry Days 2020 and just days before the October 3rd celebration of the 60th Anniversary of the premier of The Andy Griffith Show! What a wonderful time to be a fan of Mayberry!







    This episode we celebrate the podcast just a little then move on to reporting a bit about the Mayberry Man movie filming experience (more to come latter on that) then we have a report from Lydia…err…Ol’ Barney…about this years Mayberry Days experience.







    I have had a wonderful several weeks as a fan of The Andy Griffith Show and you’ll be hearing more about it as time goes on.







    As a bonus, we have an original parody song for you to enjoy at the end of the episode instead of our usual “This Week in Mayberry History” report. I thought it was fitting to give Randy Turner time off for the entire month of September so he’ll be well rested heading into the end of the year.

    Interview with Randy Turner

    Interview with Randy Turner

    Two Chairs No Waiting







    Host: Allan NewsomeRunning time: 0:31:34







    We’ve all heard from Randy Turner each week since January 2017. Randy has worked hard to bring unique information related to The Andy Griffith Show that we might never have heard before. In this episode, we get to learn a little more about Randy. How he became a fan; what keeps him going; and more. I know you’ll enjoy learning more about our “roving reporter.”







    There isn’t a “This Week in Mayberry History” this week since the whole episode is about Randy Turner. I figured he deserved a little time off.

    Behind the Scenes with Danny Vinson

    Behind the Scenes with Danny Vinson

    Two Chairs No Waiting







    Host: Allan NewsomeRunning time: 0:31:34







    In episode 594 of Two Chairs No Waiting we had fun getting to know Andy Griffith Show fan and actor Danny Vinson. In this episode we get to see some behind the scenes conversation with Danny showing us around his memory room. The room is full of memories of his carrier and it’s really amazing how many of Danny’s stories turn into Mayberry stories. He’s a true fan and I know you’re going to enjoy it.







    One thing I would recommend is that you actually watch the video version of this episode. Danny shows us a lot of things and I think the video makes it a bit more fun. I did the best I could to make the audio version fun for those who can’t, or don’t want to, watch the video.







    No Mayberry History report this week because I’m on the set filming the Mayberry Man movie.

    Mayberry Days is Go for 2020

    Mayberry Days is Go for 2020

    Two Chairs No Waiting







    Host: Allan NewsomeRunning time: 0:27:05







    There has been a lot of conflicting information about the status of Mayberry Days 2020. An article just came out in the Mount Airy News that details the plans for the event. I’m going to go through that article in an attempt to set the record straight and to help you know what the plans actually are for this year’s event.







    We’ll also hear a little about the Virtual Mayberry Meet-up that was held this past weekend and some information about things Randy Turner is doing related to Mayberry.







    Bonus: This week’s installment of This Week in Mayberry History by Randy Turner featuring “Tol Avery.”
