Amos 'n' Andy
Volume 6


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 Show 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.
 
The Kingfish was one of the program’s best-known and popular supporting characters, making his appearance in the early days of the show. But the half-hour format proved to be his meat; audiences loved his weekly attempts to swindle Andy out of some fortune or treasure which the thick-witted Andrew H. Brown had managed to acquire, and it wasn’t too long before the focus of the comedy zeroed in on a weekly formula highlighting the Kingfish’s machinations.
 
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 6 clearly shows the enduring humor and impact this series had on America, then and now.
