I was born in 1923 and, having just read Nat's comments, I can certainly relate to her childhood radio experiences. Several years ago, I found that some OTR programs. I began to search them out and developed quite a library of OTR discs. A disc would only hold two 30 minute programs, so when I found OTRCAT with MP-3 discs my OTR CDs became obsolete and I immediately began ordering OTR on MP-3 discs.
In the depression years the two primary sources of entertainment for the average family was radio and movies, with radio being firest because it was free. So most kids grew up listening to and enjoying the great radio programs which now are classics.
I now live alone with my dog Harry and my usual evening routine is that I have fed Harry and given him his medication (he has diabetes) and also had my supper by 6pm. Unless there is something that really interests me on TV, I turn on my OTR player, relax in my recliner, close my eyes and enjoy. About the only difference between Nat's evening and mine is that I enjoy a cup of hot chocolate instead of wine.
