They were pressed, 12-inch shellac pressings at 78, two sides per 
program.  The program was syndicated to about 40 stations between March 
1928 and Sept 1929.  In March 1929 they moved from Marsh over to 
Brunswick to do the recordings, and most of those (except for the ones 
done in Los Angeles on the LTR prefix) are listed in the Brunswick 
discography.  Amos 'n' Andy was the first radio program to be syndicated 
via recordings.
