Great pic! There were a couple of episodes where he played tuba with the band on the show. Good stuff. Thanks for sharing.

You're welcome - I thought this was a pretty cool picture, too.

(To me, it looks like a Conn/Pan American E flat.)

Since this is a "candid" picture of him at home, I've got to assume he was a tuba player in private life.

I drove through Mt. Airy, NC a couple of years ago. I should have paid a visit to the Andy Griffith museum to see if there was anything tuba-related there!

As an aside, his wife doesn't look particularly happy, does she?

That must be HER bugle on the floor, behind the kids... :)

It reeks of authenticity!!

I just watched a 1970's interview with Andy Griffith where he says he played sousaphone in the UNC Chapel Hill marching band.
