Summary
The Amos 'n' Andy Show debuted in 1928 and went on 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 and Andy that aired Monday through Friday. Department stores open in the evening even piped in the broadcasts so shoppers wouldn't miss an episode. The characters were members of the Mystic Knights of the Sea Lodge, of which George Stevens was the "Kingfish." Amos and Andy ran the Fresh-Air Taxi Company, with the more stable, married Amos doing most of the work while Andy chased girls. In 1943, after 4,091 quarter-hour episodes, it switched to a half-hour weekly comedy. The new version was a brassy Hollywood-style production, complete with a studio audience, a full cast of supporting actors, and a full orchestra
