Description
							Amos 'n' Andy is an American radio and television sitcom set in Harlem,  Manhattan's historic black community. The original radio show, which was  popular from the 1920s through the 1950s, was created, written, and voiced by  two white actors, Freeman Gosden and Charles Correll, who played a number of  different characters, including the titular Amos Jones (Gosdon) and Andrew Hogg  Brown (Correll).  When the show moved to television, black actors took over the  majority of the roles; white characters were infrequent. Amos 'n' Andy began as  one of the first radio comedy series and originated from station WMAQ in  Chicago. After the first broadcast in 1928, the show became a hugely popular  radio series. Early episodes were broadcast from the El Mirador Hotel in Palm  Springs, California.  The show ran as a nightly radio serial, as a weekly  situation comedy, and as a nightly disc-jockey program. A television adaptation  ran on CBS, and continued in syndicated reruns.
