Jon: i am completely in awe of your service and your website. i really didn't expect the professional way that you are set up. The fact that you have lists of each episode per disk is such a great idea. i can print them and then keep track of each episode listened to. It seems as if the episodes on the samplers are alphabetized and serialized. Another great idea. i bought several shows (Amos & Andy, X Minus One, Weird Circle, etc.) and i chose sampler #1. i can look at the episode lists and know which ones not to listen to since they could be on the other disks. Thank you for the well organized website. i will return! -bart Darby, MT

I am happy to provide Jon and OTRCAT a testimonial!
It has been a couple years since I have done my first OTRCAT order, and I keep coming back.
The choice of shows are great. Ordering is a breeze and my orders come quickly (okay, I wish they would come sooner, but that is a post office issue and certainly not a Jon or OTRCAT problem).
Whenever the topic (for whatever reason) the issue of Old Time Radio comes up, I am sure to mention OTRCAT!

Your site is a blessing to those of us who love old time radio

Dear Friend: Once again I marvel at your merchandising skills with the internet! Thanks for the vignette on OTRCat. I inherited a black and white tuxedo and huge cat from my late wife. We had always raised cocker spaniels in 57 years of an often tumultuous marriage so having a black and white cocker along with the cat has been quite an experience. Your ability to link and mix titles with a common artist are amazing. My friend B who introduced me to the world of MP3 enjoys his expanding collection. This is in confidence, as I wouldn't want to embarrass him. As my computer skills lumber on with tiny steps I enjoy reading the history of each artist and series. Many blessings and continued success.

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.
Michael S. (Ottsville Pa), March 5, 2008
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!
Gale Weinberg (Des Moines, IA), February 16, 2008
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.
