Amos 'n' Andy
Volume 5 

Gregarious Charles Correll entertains Edward G. Robinson, Frances Langford, Jon Hall, and his partner Freeman Gosden in this photo from 1936.
During its radio heyday, Amos 'n' Andy was definitely a legend in its own time. While entertainment programs have an admirable capacity to instill loyalty in their audiences, though, very few have the magic to capture the public's imagination forever. Proving itself to be a program dedicated to the best in entertainment for its audience, Amos 'n' Andy reinvented itself as necessary, becoming something different than it had been, yet remaining a favorite of listeners everywhere.
The Amos 'n' Andy shows after 1943 were radically different from the earlier program, but the revitalized show stood out in its own way. Now cast more in the mold of a traditional situation comedy, the later Amos 'n' Andy shows spotlighted a variety of black characters in many different walks of life. There were characters successful in business, entertainment, politics and more featured in the program and this was an area not explored much by other programs of the time.
These shows retained the heart that Amos 'n' Andy has always been known for among fans. The characters themselves remain at the center of the later shows as well. Even though Amos moved into the background somewhat, listeners still chuckled and laughed at the adventures of the well-realized cast, particularly Andy as he got in and out of whatever predicament The Kingfish got him into.
Restored to the best audio quality, Amos 'n' Andy, Volume 5 clearly shows the enduring humor and impact this series had on America, then and now.

5 of 5 A success on radio and television....... May 25, 2022
Reviewer: Richard McLeod from RIVERSIDE, CA United States  
This series was extremely popular on both radio and television.  Tim Moore who starred in the television series as the "Kingfish" will long be remembered as one of the great comedians of the last century.  His influence on later comics was tremendous as noted in the many documentaries that have been completed since the show was last heard on radio and seen on television.  The show had a much shorter run on television, much to the later regret of the network on which it aired.
