Andy Griffith - What it Was, Was Football (Glass 78)
Andy Griffith passed away today at the age of 86. For those of you who aren't familiar with Andy Griffith, he was on "The Andy Griffith Show" where he played a single father who happened to be the sheriff, the show ran from 1960-1968 and continues in reruns to this day. He also played a lawyer in the show "Matlock," which ran from 1986-1995, which is also in re-runs. He also was in many movies.
What you have here is him doing a stand up routine about football. It has a Justin Wilson quality to it.
This recording was made in 1953 or there about, I am having an issue finding this released as a glass 78, which is what I have.
He was born Andrew Samuel Griffin in Mt. Airy, North Carolina June 1st, 1926. he died at his home on Roanoke Island, NC on July 3rd.
Rest in Peace.
