    A sad day, indeed. I'll have to dig up my CD of Andy singing gospel songs and give it a listen.

    We'll miss you, Andy... you, Sheriff Taylor, and Ben Matlock.

    The Andy Griffith Show is one that has never got old to me, one of my favorites.

    I was sad to hear this news. Really enjoyed his work. For those interested, Turner Classic Movies is having a four-film memorial July 18th to pay tribute to Andy Griffith's life and career. See below:



    • “A Face in the Crowd” (1957), 7 p.m.: Elia Kazan’s acclaimed drama about an Arkansas bum who becomes an overnight media sensation.
    • “No Time for Sergeants” (1958), 9:15 p.m.: Griffith is a dumb country bumpkin drafted into the Air Force.
    • “Hearts of the West” (1975), 11:30 p.m.: Jeff Bridges is a Western writer who meets a real-life cowboy (Griffith).
    • “Onionhead” (1958) 1:15 a.m.: This military comedy was reportedly such a flop that it drove Griffith to television.

    From everything I could tell, he was a decent and genuine guy, much like his on screen persona. There aren't too many hollywood icons that I could recommend as role models but he was one of them. RIP sir and thanks for all of your fine work.

    No problem. I think TV Land is having an, "Andy Griffith Show" marathon this weekend with all-time fan favorite episodes as well.

    The black and white Andy Griffith Show remains the best comedy show period, every episode was a classic. The best were when Opie shot the bird, anything with The Good Time Girls, or Gomer, the haunted house... well they were all great. The world is a lesser place without you, Andy Griffith.

    His humor is often played on Pandora and xmradio's "laugh usa". I especially like his interpretation of Hamlet. It's so different from what you expect.
