A slice of Americana: Andy Griffith, Earl Hagen and Old Theme Songs

Did you know that there are words to the theme song from the Andy Griffith show? When Andy and Opie are walking with their poles to the fishing hole we hear someone whistling the show tune, which in fact is called “The Fishing Hole.” Ray Fowler has a great post on the passing of Earl Hagen, who wrote many of the great themes to the shows I grew up with, including Gomer Pyle and Dick Van Dyke. You can even hear Andy sing the words to the song at the post!
