Ed Bolton, the talented musician and voice actor who recreated the lost Amos 'n' Andy episodes, died in November at the age of 83.

Shortly after I discovered WBCQ, I tuned into "Uncle Ed's Musical Memories." My Mom had possession of my great-aunt's Victrola and when I was a kid we would listen to the recordss sometimes. Uncle Ed rekindled my love of the music of the twenties.

I also enjoyed the Amos 'n' Andy re-creations but didn't tune into them as much as "Musical Memories" because of course it was serialized and I couldn't tune in every night. However, "Amos 'n' Andy" was quite interesting as well.

I also got a kick out of all the politically correct people getting their shorts in a twist over them.

Slightly more information about Ed Bolton can be found on WBCQ's website.

Sorry dude, I wish I knew more about that myself, but all I know is what was on WBCQ's website.

Please let me know if you find out anything more and I will for sure publicize it here.
