Lurene Tuttle And Me—We Go Way Back!
You folks are not gonna believe this, (and I don't know much) but I've been familiar with Lurene Tuttle since I was 13 years old back in 1977. Here's how: I was an old-time radio fanatic by the time I was in 2nd grade, and by the time I heard an episode of "Pat Novak For Hire" entitled "Father Leahy" from 1949, starring Jack Webb and Raymund Burr, I was a six-year student of OTR trivia, and very much into the details.

I knew very shortly after listening to my tape recording of this broadcast several (dozen?) times that the actress playing Norma Feldman was none other than Lurene Tuttle. She was quite impressive as a radio performer and very much in demand. I made this connection the next time I saw the TAGS episode "The Shoplifters."

I did not know until today, however, that Parley Baer was also in the same episode of Pat Novak with Lurene Tuttle. This somehow escaped me, as distinct as Baer's voice is. There is a veritable web of these coincidences, as I was reminded upon surfing around Google and Wikipedia and finding that Baer appeared in "Three's Company," which of course co-starred Don Knotts. He also was a recurring performer in "Adventures In Odyssey," a Focus On The Family radio production, alongside his old TAGS colleague, Hal Smith. And the list goes on and on. Make an interesting book, wouldn't it?

I have loved Old Time Radio for many years and go through spells of listening to various programs, especially comedies like "Gildersleeve."  It is interesting to learn of connections with TAGS.

I really enjoyed the last couple of Two Chairs podcasts and the tie in to The Great Gildersleeve.  My blind grandmother who lived to be 99 years old, loved listening to the Gildersleeve radio show.  She loved to hear him laugh and it would set her to giggling and laughing herself.  I remember buying her a 78 record of Gildersleeve for her birthday or Christmas one year.  I became hooked after listening to a couple of the shows and have been listening to them ever since.  I think there are over 500 of the old Gildersleeve shows and before that, Gildersleeve was a character on Fibber Magee and Mollie radio show.  You can listen to at least 100 of these shows by going to the following link:

Again, thanks Allan for the connection.

John, I think we would all agree with that!

There is NEVER enough Mayberry

Comment by John Foster on March 11, 2012 at 4:10pm

That's good to know Andy gets something from the sale of Mayberry products.  So we are part of his retirement package!

Comment by Allan "Floyd" Newsome on March 11, 2012 at 3:31pm

Hey John,

Yes...that is true of ALL the cast...even Andy.  None of them get residuals from the show.  Andy sold his rights to TAGS back in the 1970's but he still has the rights to all the characters and their likenesses ( with a few exceptions).  Mayberry Enterprises, INC. holds those rights and Andy does get payment from the sales of licensed Mayberry products.

I am a little behind on the Two Chairs podcasts.  Just listened to Part 1 of the Don Knotts podcast.  A couple comments.  One - you were wondering what the woman said that wasn't by a microphone and Don Knots said 'thanks'.  I think I heard her say, 'ATTA Boy Luther!.  Just kidding!

Also, Don mentioned that he didn't get any residuals from TAGS.  Do you think that is true for all of the cast, except maybe Andy Griffith?  Kind of sad - we have watched these reruns for years and years and its sad to think the actors don't get any dollars from that.  I guess that's the way it is though.

Allan, awesome show. My 5 to pull others in would be
1 - The Pickle Story
2 - Birdman
3 - Bailey's Bad Boy
4 - Aunt Bee The Warden
5 - Convicts at Large
These 5 had powerful messages within. It's a real privilege to be your neighbor in Mayberry. That goes for all of you guys and gals. I guess what I'm trying to say is "Best to you and yours".
Comment by John Foster on February 18, 2012 at 3:46pm

Yes, no leaning on barber chairs for you!  You do a great job with your Floyd imitation.  Its the actor of the man.  For what its worth, these would be my 5 to hook someone one into Andy with a quick comment:

5. Opie The Birdman - showcases Opie and Andy's relationship

4. Barney's First Car - "I'm all set" - Hilarious -" You're a good son, Barn."

3. The Pickle Story - Great showcase of Aunt Bea and love for her by Andy.

2. Convicts at Large - Floyd at his best.  Wow.....

1. Man In a Hurry - This was the episode that hooked me way back when.
