Andy Wiswell

Andy Wiswell, a Grammy-winning record producer who worked with Judy Garland, Perry Como and Harry Belafonte, died Dec. 17 after a short illness at his home in Aiken, S.C. He was 94.

Wiswell won a Grammy in 1968 as a producer for the original cast album of the musical “Hair,” and was nominated five times in the same category for “I Do I Do!” in 1967, “The Happy Time” and “Your Own Thing” in 1968, and “Coco” and “Purlie” in 1970.

He also worked on the 1962 record of the year, “Judy Garland Live at Carnegie Hall.”

Wiswell served as vice president in charge of recording for Muzak Corp. in the 1940s, and then became A&R record producer for Capitol Records in the 1950s and 1960s. He worked as a producer for RCA Records before retiring in 1973.

He is survived by his wife, three sons and a grandson.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the Scholarship Fund of the Hospital Auxiliary of Aiken County, 380 University Parkway, Aiken, SC 29801.
