Post a message...

Really appreciate having you to turn to for my Old Time Radio Shows!!! I'm 63...remember listening to "The Shadow" in front of our Zenith (Which I have refinished & still have working....it was purchased the day I was born in 1946). I have ordered quite a few MP3's from you and can't thank you enough for the enjoyment it has given me.

I’ve been an OTRcat.org shopper for years. Recently my father, who just turned 89 had been having some health issues. He was having anxiety attacks which were making his heart race. He would then take his pulse and see his heart rate was up that would make him more frightened causing his heart race even faster. After a particularly bad spell of this I took him to the emergency cardiac unit at a local hospital.

For hours he fretted about his heart rate while the doctors told him that he just needed to relax as they ran a series of tests on him. Of course, this took hours, during which he keep asking me what his heart rate was on the monitor. As I sat as his bed I realized I had my Ipod with me. I had just loaded a bunch of Great Gildersleeves. I said, do you want to hear an old radio show… and I put in the ear buds and started the shows. He laid back and began to relax… he was so quiet that I was worried for a moment until I heard him start to laugh. All the while his heart rate went down and down until it was normal.

A few hours and several shows later (he even wanted to take the shows into the lab when they were going to run tests on him) the sent him home with a full bill of health. On the car on the way home he said, “All I needed were these shows…” I left him with my Ipod and came back the next day with an mp3 player and all of my Gildersleeve and Fibber discs. Whenever he feels anxious he sits back and listens.

So grateful… thanks OTRcat!!

I love the mousepad, several folks at work have commented on it. One wrote down your website. I love the Johnny Mercer set. I have never heard the complete Camel Caravan shows. When I was on the radio years ago, I used to play LP tracks taken from those broadcasts. If and when I get a website up, I will include an OTRCAT link. Thank you for providing such a great resource.

As a new customer, I absolutely agree with Mort from New York! I'm so grateful to have found this site. My order was filled accurately and promptly and the two extras were really nice; one of them quite unexpected! I have a large collection and will probably not be ordering frequently, but I know where to come when I do want something. Thanks again!

I love this site! My mother purchased a cassette of two Shadow shows for my brother and myself years ago and we must have listened to it a billion times. Imagine my surprise to find the volumes of shows on your site. My brother and I have made multiple purchases and cannot get enough. My favorite thing to do is to put a variety of shows on my i-pod and bring the thrills of yesteryear into the high tech era.

Being used to seeing a show on TV, I would have never guessed how great "seeing" a show in my mind could be. It's got me hooked!

Just listened to a bit of the old radio show "Straight Arrow" It's the episode called "Stage to Calvedos."
They talked about naming Straight Arrow's golden palomino horse. Well, they did have a contest, and I was the winner, submitting the name "Fury." Here's a picture of me with my grandmother that was taken when I found out that I won. Now I have to send this episode to my 9 year old grandson and see if he gets as hooked to Straight Arrow as I did so many years ago.

Hi once again Jon......

To show how bad my addiction is..... You were kidding me about sitting out in the driveway to catch the last part of a show??

Well remember I told you of the radio my grandfather gave me when I was a wee lad (many, many Years ago) ? The first thing that I did to that radio was to disconnect the speaker and hook up a set of headphones so that I could listen to it in bed without my parents knowing since as a child I was supposed to be in bed and asleep rather early.

Jon ....old habits die hard my friend....I have a three disc cd player beside my bed. The player has a sleep timer on it and is set for at least an hours worth of play time and to add insult to injury it is connected to a pillow speaker so that my wife thinks that I am asleep but in truth I am revisiting my youth and am listening to the radio shows.

Me have an addiction ..... Naw........ or if it is then do not ever send me out for the cure.

Thanks again

Nice enhancements to your web site this week.

Hi Jon, Just like to say i have every one of your sampler discs. Your website is amazing and the service is as good. You have made my life so much fun with all the radio shows you have provided.I have already loaded an 80g and 120g ipod with your shows it is so great. God Bless you an keep it coming.

I have been able to use the shows I have purchased from you as part of my "Introduction to Radio and TV: The History of Broadcast" course (JRN1103) AT Troy University's Hall School of Journalism and Communication, where I am a full-time faculty member.

Discovering your website is my greatest "Greatest Discovery in Years!!!"

As a Vietnam veteran (1969-70) let me thank you on behalf of the service people in Iraq and Afghanistan for sharing these wonderful programs with them. It brings back memories of listening to Armed Forces radio from Saigon. We could listen to Fibber McGee (my all time favorite show), or Gunsmoke or Lux Radio Theater on a weekly basis and how much we looked forward to listening to those shows.

These shows stimulated my interest and when I returned to the US I really got involved in collecting. Hopefully, many veterans will also start an interest in OTR.

Thanks for sharing these shows with our service members. You are doing a wonderful job.

I thank you for giving me the opportunity to relive my most memorable childhood days ,whene radio shows fed my imagination in a most creative way. Your immense collection of radio shows is in no small measure due to your unwavering dedication . Many of my friends have been notified of your website.

I have enjoyed many of the mp3cds I have purchased, but none was quiet as fascinating and moving as the Pearl Harbor day disc. It was indeed, as the cliche' says "Living History". What was most fascinating to me, were the long pauses, the dead air, if you will, that would never be allowed today. But it was history as it happened. No matter YOU ARE THERE
