We’re so happy to have found you! We used to buy Fibber & Molly and other old radio classics on cassette when we could find them, but your selection is wonderful and I so appreciate being able to have them on my MP3 player when I work around the house. We also listen to them when we take road trips and your prices are fantastic.

I was first interested in old time radio shows when I was about eleven because my older sister liked them. She found radio shows and recorded them onto cassette tapes. Then I started to listen to them and enjoyed them too. Now we have audio CDs and even better, MP3 CDs, which are so much easier. Now that I'm older, I understand things that people are saying so much better. I appreciate the fact that old time radio shows are clean and suitable for any age. Anyone can laugh at Junior, the Mean Widdle Kid, or scoot to the edge of a seat in anticipation during Suspense. Sometimes I find myself saying, "I knew that would happen!" I enjoy listening to old time radio while doing various things, from exercise and working outside in the garden to cleaning windows and knitting. Listening to a good show makes me forget the utter boredom associated with scrubbing glass and pulling weeds. Many a happy hour have I spent in the sun, happily working and laughing at Chester A. Riley. Listening and knitting is a good way to pass time. I love the detectives who go through all sorts of things and always solve the mystery in the end, like Richard Diamond and George Valentine. This catalog has the most old time radio shows that I've seen anywhere. They're really quite affordable and the service is great. We have so many MP3 disks in the house it's hilarious, but I'm not finished yet. I love old time radio! Thank you, Jon!

Thanks so much! These atomic radio recordings are for my husband's birthday. He wants to have a 'disaster weekend' where we listen to OTR watch cold war movies, and live off the cabinets. No spam in sweden though, he doesn't know what he's missing! LOL

My wife and I have ordered several sets of your MP3s (Dragnet, Amos & Andy, My Favorite Husband, Suspense, and just today Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar and Nightwatch) and these OTRs are an important part of our relationship. We listen to these shows together and enjoy them more than any TV show. These have all been excellent CDs and we will be ordering more. Thanks so much for the great radio shows.

I've purchased a great many OTR mp3 discs from OTR Cat and have always been nothing more than completely satisfied with both the service and the quality of the product ... I can almost guarantee you will not find the same level of quality and professionalism as you do here. Order without fear and prepare to enjoy some truly great audio theater from yesteryear!

Jon: just want to tell you I enjoy old time radio at night while trying to go to sleep. Enjoy "Broadway's My Beat" "Tales of the Texas Rangers" "Philo Vance" and all the other detectives.. Your prices are reasonable -- Wishing you all the best!

I was born too late to enjoy most OTR without tape, CD, record or MP3. I discovered OTR by ordering some Superman records from Kellogg's when I was a boy. Today, thanks to otrcat I'm discovering new OTR treasures all the time. Thank you & have a Happy New Year!!!!

Just so you know my kids opened the X Minus One CDs and my son broke out in laughter. He had such a good time listening to the ones from 1995 on tape and both my son and daughter are looking forward to listening to 140 episodes. I plan on getting more CDs and some for me. My daughter works as a CNA at a retirement home and this would be a great way to have the patients enjoy their memories, what a great idea.

The discs arrived today. I just want to tell you how much I am enjoying the Cities Service Band of America one. I have been searching for years for recordings (I wore my records out 40 years ago) and only came up with one, the fabulous Lavalle at Work, which I've digitized. When I was a child I was very ill and missed almost two years of school. A highlight of my week was the Cities Service program. It encouraged me to take up the trombone and I later became active in concert and jazz bands. Paul Lavalle was a real hero to me. So, thanks for pulling that together. The sound is better than my old table radio's and the spirit of this kind of Americana is hard to beat.
I'm sure I'll enjoy the other recordings, but did want to mention this one to you.
Best wishes for the holidays. You have a great service. I will doubtless be ordering more.

Again, I receieved my most recent purchase of great OTR from OTRCAT.com and I'm very happy to be now listening to Your Hit Parade, with the feature song "Goody Goody." I also ordered the Benny Goodman collection.
I want to say for anyone unsure of the quality of shows, they are usually remarkably good, for the age of the shows.
OTRCAT.com is the best source for all your OTR listening needs. I recommend that you take advantage of the free SAMPLER, which is a great gift to your collection, and order from OTRCAT.com with confidence.
As they say on the web, ENJOY! It's history, happiness, and will put a smile on your face, unless you want to be scared by Suspense, or thrilled by the Detectives. Or educated with the wonderful selection of Historical and Children's shows. It's all on OTRCAT.com.
If I sound like a commerical, it's because I'm sold on OTRCAT.com.

I just wanted to let you know I received the discs last week, and the Glenn Miller disc was EXACTLY what I've been looking for! Thank you for providing something I did not think was available, and for providing it at a reasonable rate and timely delivery!
