I've been buying OTR exclusively from "the cat" for about two years. Always fast delivery, always good CDs, and the monthly addition of new material and occasional Samplers keeps things lively.
Compared to other major OTR stores, what makes the Cat superior is clear description of the contents of each disk, and the ability to buy each disk separately...

I originally found your site after a search for the hilarious British show, "Round The Horne" and not only did I find exactly what I was looking for but I also am delighted to have found a magic treasure trove of suspense, drama, music and humor - and most important of all, history. There is something so much more engaging to me in listening rather than watching: the re-activation of imagination, perhaps? It makes me sorry I was born too late to experience it the first time around. I am therefore very grateful to have your site as an excellent resource. I am so please with not only the quality but the QUANTITY of material ones receives is just remarkable! I just placed my third order and I am delighted that I have so much more to discover... thanks for the "freebies" too! Cheers - Paul

After being a satisfied customer for such a long time, I guess its about time I told you that I think your Sample CDs are fantastic. No kidding. I would pay good old American dollars for Sampler CDs like these so I am amazed they are free! Keep up the good work and I'll keep coming back. Let me know when the 7th Sampler CD is ready and don't be afraid to charge for it!

Going on family vacations in the car, my dad would always know which stations were playing the old time radio shows, usually one of the mystery shows. That started my love affair with old time radio, and thanks to Jon and his wonderful selection on OTRCat, I've been able to find and listen to those wonderful shows again. Thanks Jon.

I am retired now and was surfing the net when i across your OTR site. I was really amazed at the catalog of shows you have. So i ordered a couple of cd s and was hooked. Remember when i was young and laying on the livingroom floor in front of our ZENITH radio and listening and fasinating of what was going on. Brings back memories. Thanks so much.

I'll never be able to thank you so much for the daily pleasure I receive in listening to your wonderful CD's. Every lunc htime I relax bak in my recliner and go to sleep listening to a show. The same when I go to bed. And on long car trips, flights, never leave home without one. You have given me countless hours of pleasure and I wanted to share how grateful I am for the price and quality and service you provide. Yours very sincerely Keith

Jon. It's wonderful to be able to please my listeners, I've been doing an OLD TIME RADIO show for about 27 years and when a listener requests a show, I know I can count on you to get it to me fast. At KKUP 91.5 FM we supply most of our own programs and with your large selection I'm able to do a really good job intertaining. I often mention otrcat.com. and tell what great prices you have. Thank you for the wonderful shows you share.

I've been a happy customer for over a year now. While I enjoy listening to XM Radio's old time radio channel, I also greatly enjoy listening to the shows I have ordered here at OTRCat. I was born after the golden age of radio, but I find the shows a great educational experience.
Jon at OTRCat sends orders out promptly and accurately. There is great value for each $5.00 spent per disc.

I've been ordering from OTRCAT for almost 6 years now -- it never ceases to amaze me the new collections and compilations that show up on this website. I've been a happy listener for years now and couldn't live without an MP3 cd playing by my bedside at night. OTRCAT is tops!

You are "faster than a speeding bullet". I got my "Two Black Crows" CD in the mail yesterday, 3 days after I ordered it!
I have only had an opportunity to listen to a couple of tracks, but it's better than I had imagined it would be.
Thanks for keeping these thing available.

These are just great folks! I've been a regular customer for about a year and expect to stay one as long as we're both around. Lots to select from so its easy to mix shows to match my mood. Little by little I'm trying to convert my kids (they didn't grow up listening to The Shadow, The Lone Ranger, etc like I did) - OTR makes for great birthday/Christmas presents (Jubilee & Birdland for my son, Goon Show for my daughter).
By the way, Jon is also a just plain really good guy, OTRcat isn't some anonymous business - these are for real folks that I enjoy dealing with.

I'd like to acknowledge the great service and prices from otrcat. I was able to find some old time radio shows that were carried by a San Francisco station in the mid 60's which my wife and I listened to (we were first married and had no money). What a treat to find all the shows that were featured at that time. Thank you Jon.
Jim Earle (San Ramon, CA), January 30, 2008
I started listening to OTR with my older brother. When he came back from the NAVY I would spend the night with him (he is 14 years older then me) He and I would play Rummy until early morning hours and listen to the shows on the AM stations. sometimes I would get a record from the library. Then YEARS later I was working graveyard and again I found a station with them on. I am hooked. They help get threw the long hours in my tow truck. 24/7 and sometimes I am in the truck 12 to 18 hours. So thank you again. I think you have a great collection and I will own it someday no matter how long it takes me to get them. lol
Again thank you from a kindred spirit.. Edward

Your work is deeply appreciated by me, my partner, my father, and our best friend. It is fun to get together and enjoy the shows laughing or shivering together.
