The Amos ’n’ Andy Show, Vol. 2

The Classic Radio Collection

Description

Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll made their radiodebut January 12, 1926, as the comedic, blackface characters Sam ’n’ Henry. On March 19, 1928, theyintroduced Amos ’n’ Andy, which wenton to become one of the most popular and longest-running programs in radio history. During the height of the show’s popularity,almost the entire country listened to the fifteen-minute adventures of Amos andAndy that aired Monday through Friday. Department stores open in the eveningpiped in the broadcasts so shoppers wouldn’t miss an episode; movie theatersscheduled their features to end just prior to the start of Amos ’n’ Andy so they, too, could pipe it in.

The characters were members of the Mystic Knights ofthe Sea Lodge, of which George Stevens was the “Kingfish.” Amos and Andy ranthe Fresh-Air Taxi Company, with the more stable, married Amos doing most ofthe work while Andy chased girls. In 1943, after 4,091 quarter-hour episodes,it switched to a half-hour weekly comedy. While the five-a-week show often hada quiet, easygoing feeling, the new version was a brassy Hollywood-styleproduction, complete with a studio audience, a full cast of supporting actors,and a full orchestra. Many of the half-hour programs were written by JoeConnelly and Bob Mosher, later the writing team for Leave It to Beaver and TheMunsters. In the new version, Amos became a minor character to the moredominant Andy and Kingfish duo. The new Amos’n’ Andy show lasted for the next twelve years as one of radio’s most popularweekly programs.

Episodes include:

“Violets”“Culture”“Diamond Ring”“Sunday, Monday or Always”“Madam Queen, Part 1”“Madam Queen, Part 2”“Insurance, Part 1”“Insurance, Part 2”“Amnesia”“Get Acquainted”“Chauffeur”“Secretary”
