AMOS N' ANDY
Radio's most popular series, 1926-1958.
Inscribed signatures: "To/Corinne R. Manning/With Kindest regards/from/Amos" and "'n' Andy", 5½x3¾ piece of paper. Amos n' Andy, originally titled Sam n' Henry, debuted on Chicago's WGN on January 12, 1926. The storyline was about two Alabama Black men who came to Chicago to find their fortunes. Its two stars, FREEMAN GOSDEN and CHARLES CORRELL, both white, wrote the scripts and played all of the parts. The Chicago "Daily News" radio station, WMAQ, offered them a contract that included distribution rights. The two accepted, but WGN refused to give up the name Sam n' Henry, and so two new but similar characters were created called Jim n' Charlie, then Tom n' Harry and, finally, Amos n' Andy. The show debuted over WMAQ on March 19, 1928. The characters came from Atlanta instead of Alabama and were members of the Mystic Knights of the Sea Lodge instead of the Jewels of the Crown. Everything else remained the same. Amos n' Andy premiered on the NBC radio network on Thursday night, August 19, 1929 at 11:00 P.M. EST. The show was broadcast an unprecedented six days a week. It was so popular, that it was moved to 7:00 P.M. EST to reach a broader audience. There were protests on the west coast because it would be aired there at 4 P.M. so, for the first time in radio history, NBC did a repeat broadcast for its west coast affiliates. Amos n' Andy hit its peak of popularity in the 1930s, but the show remained on radio until 1958. Soiled. Vertical crease at middle (not affecting signatures but the inscription. Irregular lower right corner.
