ANDY GRIFFITH - VIEWPOINT. The lost 1959 interview!

This interview was conducted when Andy was in New York City appearing in the Broadway musical DESTRY RIDES AGAIN, prior to beginning his 8 year run as the beloved Sheriff Andy Taylor on THE ANDY GRIFFITH SHOW.

Andy shares his views on the entertainment business and being an entertainer, as well as his views on Christianity. That’s a subject rarely discussed by entertainers in today's day and age. Andy sat down in his dressing room of the Imperial Theater for this 25 minute interview with a New York radio personality. The tape sat in an attic for over a half a century until its recent discovery.

Now restored, this interview is available for download. Keep in mind the magnetic source tape was recorded 57 years ago on now rather ancient equipment. It's not "digital quality" but it is quite listenable. It’s content is a slice of classic Americana.
