This is to say Thank You! In this current world we are still able to return to a time when good and evil were defined and good trimuphed. There was no PC and no need. There was a pride in our country and the language we heard was not offensive, full of racial slurs, politically slanted and written in an educated and masterful manner. They call the radio, the "Theatre of the Mind" and to be able to listen to these shows just proves the point. I am 58 and remember listening on Sunday nite to the shows as Mom made dinner. Having these shows around keeps those memories alive. We hear some of the greatest stars of all time in these shows and they in turn showed us respect with the way they entertained and took us away from our worlds for a little while. Keep up the good work...

I spend a lot of time alone on surveillance as a private investigator. I have to watch for my target so I spend a lot of time listening to the old detective radio programs on my MP3.
They are a lot more exciting than real life, but I still enjoy listening. I highly recommend OTRCat.com

I just wanted to add my two cents worth to the many other people who are enjoying these old radio programs. I am in my thirties and love to listen to these programs while I clean and sew. I must admit that I even fall asleep listening to them! I absolutely love them. Thank you for adding some good wholesome entertainment. I have ordered many different shows and will continue to order more! Thanks again!!

While I love listening to OTR around the house, as it helps even unpleasant chores go faster (wash the dishes with Fibber McGee and Molly...do laundry with Our Miss Brooks...), I've discovered that it has completely changed my driving habits. No longer do I measure a trip by hours or miles, but by OTR episodes! My car's CD player plays MP3 discs, so Indy to Terre Haute is 3 episodes of The Great Gildersleeve! Indy to Ft. Wayne is w episodes of the Lux Radio Theater .... I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to vacation this fall, where I'm driving cross country to visit friends in Ohio, New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut. I'll be taking my whole OTR library to keep me company and am looking forward to having the opportunity to listen to some multi part episodes. I might FINALLY get to listen to all of The Cinnamon Bear in one shot! Most of my OTR library has come from Jon's site, as you just can't beat the variety and the QUALITY of his discs. I've purchased from other vendors, thinking that I was getting a "deal" only to end up with partial series, shoddy discs that stick and inferior sound quality. I end up having to buyy them from Jon AGAIN, so it ends up not being much of a deal after all. Great work, Pal! Keep up the good work!!!!

I'm 26 and I first started listening to OTR with my grandparents when I was a very small child. It played on the radio at about 1am on sunday mornings and we would stay up and listen to it every week. My parents got me as many episodes on tape as they could find, but it was expensive. Even so I must have listened to each of those tapes 100 times. I was so excited to find your website. Those MP3 cds are the greatest bargain I've ever found. I listen to them every night while I'm going to sleep, and I rewind to the last thing I remember so that I don't miss a minute. I also wanted to compliment you on the speed of delivery. I know we live in the same city, but I ordered on wednesday the 1st and it was waiting for me on Monday, which is an incredible feat considering that I ordered close to midnight, and it was 4th of July weekend. Keep doing what you are doing. You can count on my business in the future. I already have a list put together.

I thought I would drop you a note to let you know that I my mother loved your Radio show and I was born June 17, 1945, she named me Corlis after Corliss. I spelled my name with a "A" Carliss in school, but that is where I got my name from. I have been asked so many times, where did you get that name and I always tell them about how my Mom loved your show and wanted me named after Corliss. My Mom is still living at 84, will be 85 in September. She had memory problems,but still remembers your shows.
Hats off to your memory!!!

Just entered my 7th or 8th order -- have lost track over the years.
Wanted to comment on two things: first, many of the OTR vehicles make terrific gifts -- as you may remember, I've a huge library, but recently have been giving OTR programs -- especially "I'm Sorry, I'll Read That Again" -- to friends (to the point where one, an "oil" guy, is now giving copies to some of his staff in China), and second ... congratulations on the great upgrades you've made to the website. It's really good looking and easy to maneuver around.
I guess I should comment of the OTR programs or the fulfillment -- but they're great and you run the business like a finely tuned clock.
Appreciate all you've done. Thanks again. /s/ Paul

The quality of the redigitized Gunsmoke collection is terrific. They are as good, if not better, than listening in real time on the radio. It's truly appreciated for the care taken to make these episodes available for a very small cost. As I've been saying for the past years, "Thank you".

I received my radio cds and love them. In fact I can say OTR will improve my health as I will use the tread mill longer. I hate to exercise but walked to Orson Wells 30 minutes longer than usual this am. Thanks again

I was born too late to enjoy the heyday of radio entertainment. This site has given me the chance to here the shows my grandparents and parents grew up with. I have became adicted to listening to these shows. Thankyou so much. This site is real easy to use and the history behind the shows is very imformative. Service is FAST! Thank you again. Rick

I have been collecting shows from a number of websites but they don't compare to OTRCat with the photos/bios/and listening samples. A quality product at a great price. For many friends who borrow my collection, I include a link to Cat so that they can explore their interests. Well done!
Kevin (Vermont), May 21, 2009
I've ordered a few times from OTRCat.com, and every time has been great. Thank you Jon for keeping the old time radio spirit alive!
