And a BIG thanks to Danny Thomas !! I've heard that DT had
an episode where he got a traffic ticket and that was the start of the show. I didn't do any research for posting this but am going to check now. The morning radio show I listen to 'Mark and Brian' @ KLOS 95.5 Los Angeles are big fans of the Andy Griffith Show and have visited with and/or interviewed Andy and also Don Knotts.
