odd request.It just so happens, I had tapes of the radio show for years. <br><br>I finally put them in one of my crates along with hundreds of other  cassettes and moved them out to the (dangerous) shed.<br><br>I can dig through it all and see what I can find. I'm not fursure what's on them, I don't remember ever listening to them.<br><br>If I find anything I'll let you know.<br><br><br><br> <br>

For some reason this little part of a sketch has always stayed with me. I don't know who says it Amos, Andy, or King Fish but it's  cute:  First they splits the atoms into monocles. Then they splits the monocles into morons, protons, and fig newtons.<br><br>

I've never seen a episode of the Amos 'N Andy TV series. I did see Check and Double Check, though.

Nope, it's public domain. You can buy it on about a billion different low-budget cartoon comps.
