  Amos 'n' Andy "All About Amos 'n' Andy and their Creators" by Correll & Gosden. This 1930 book about the very popular NBC radio show is a book that should be viewed in both the perspectives of radio as well as social history.

It allows searches of over 1 million pages of PDF files and many, many millions of unique words. Check it out and report any issues to the webmaster. Because the search looks through millions of pages, it is slow... that is because we don't have hundreds of thousands of blades in a server farm like Google. But it works!

Note What's wrong? I have added very little to the site in the last 10 days, and that which was added came from processing older scans. About a week ago, while having solar installed on the roof, one of the workers stepped on an unreinforced area and came down into my office, buckets of roofing tar and all. Fortunately, he was not injured beyond some scratches and bruises. But one of my scanners was severely damaged, and many items waiting to be scanned were damaged or ruined. The floor has to be resurficed, and I lost my comfy chair. It is taking a while to repair it all, but we have lots of neat new stuff to start adding soon once the fixing is done.

Despite a diligent search, I was unable to contact Larry Magne, the author in the past. As with many ceased publications, we decided to include it on the site with the caveat expressed in our "Site Information" section that we would "cheerfully" remove it if requested. Unfortunately, this title has been removed from nearly all public and university libraries and is otherwise unavailable for research, review and simple entertainment. Hopefully, as the publisher seems to wish to protect the content, we may expect them to make it again available in some easily accessable fashion.

8/3/15 Radio Stars of Today In the Golden Age of Radio, there were quite a few "annual" guides to the stars on the network shows. Most were just pictures and a short bio. Today we've added an exception volmue from 1937 called Radio Stars of Today by Robert Eichberg. It even has Foreword statements from Lennox Lohr, President of the NBC (Red and Blue) and Wm. Paley, president of the CBS. There are the customary bios and photos, but there are some fascinating articles about the big network stations including some great studio shots and stunning transmitter scenes. There is a generally good discussion of how radio works and how it got to the listner. It's well written and makes one of the best reads on the site. I recommend it highly.
