Amos & Andy Show

Amos & Andy Show

This 15 minute daily situation comedy was probably the most popular radio show of all time. The listening audience was estimated at 40 million, almost one-third of Americans living at that time. The story was of Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll playing Amos and Andy as black men from Harlem who owned the Fresh Air Taxi Company, so called because its only cab had no windshield. Amos and Andy were the commonest of common men: they symbolised the poor Joe with no money, no job and no future. It was the first significant serial utilising the elements of sympathetic characters, comedy and suspense.
