Is that our own Andy Griffith of Matlock fame?
I do remember reading one time that Griffith had been a music major in college. Ever since, I’ve noticed how often he incorporated a music theme into the various Matlock episodes.
Either he was conducting the church choir, or he was pickin’ on a guitar, or banjo, with some itinerant that he’d picked up and was defending. He was a good musician — at least the TV made him seem so.
