I am a young OTR fan (I am a mere 20 years old) but I have loved OTR since I was a wee lad! Instead of watching TV I was a kid who much preferred to sit in front of my grandmother's reproduction radio listening to OTR cassette tapes. I really was born in the wrong era since I love classic movies, magazines, radio, cars, memorobilia, etc. I also auditioned for a popular television music show (I can't name it, but it is the most popular singing talent show in america) from which I sang classic songs including Patsy Cline and made it decently far. So old time radio and the golden eras have a definite influence on my life. I ordered from OTRcat for the first time a week ago, and I LOVE what I recieved. I have been an avid fan for years, but first time order-er. So I can't wait to order again!

It's been a long time since I've ordered from Jon, not because I don't want to, it's just that I have so many of the otr MP3's that I'm still listening to them all. Whenever I visit OTRCAT I make up a wishlist, but the next time I visit the site there's either a new series or a great deal going on...I've been picking up a Canadian station that plays otr from about 9pm-3am. Sometimes the signal fades, but if I have the series on disc and can find the show, I make a note to listen without interference after. Recently I had to be in the hospital for almost a month. Having my discs to listen to while I was there helped pass the time. Everyone wanted to know what I was listening to. When I told them, they wanted to know where they could get some...so I gave them the website. Word of mouth still works!! Thanks Jon for all the wonderful times in yesterday...

Although I was not born until 1958, I've become very interested in the golden age of radio! And I just LOVE the sampler that I received with my order and can hardly wait for the next sampler that will come with my nextorder!

The best idea ever was to have a free sample show. That is how I discovered "The Whistler" and bought the set among others. OTR predates me and I had no idea what great stuff was around. Plays big, packs flat and cheap: How do you beat that?

Not only have I stopped watching T.V.(Because the plots are stale), but I am also looking foward to more exciting OTR. Thank You guys for showing me what true drama is all about!

OTRCAT disks (MP3) have been the most reliable of all the disks I have purchased. Infact I have made them my only supplier. Great supply and great quality all to make me a very satisfied customer.

I'd never heard of OTR and accidentally stumbled across it whilst searching for information on 'The Halls of Ivy (tv)'. I lifted the lid on a treasure trove and delved straight in with 'Box 13', 'The Six Shooter', and (of course) 'The Halls of Ivy'. What delights. I've been back for more: Escape, Lux Theatre, Sherlock Holmes, Suspense... and friends/family have found themselves (sometimes surprisingly) drawn into the OTR magic. Despite all that our current tv/media portray as required entertainment, the enjoyment of OTR by all ages confirms that there is still a place for more paced and 'honest' productions. It's a shame you have to go back roughly 50 years to find a good supply... but reassuring to find them so easily available. And inexpensive.

And am spreading the word!!

To my friends at OTR. I grew up listening to Old Time Radio in the late 40's & 50's. I began collecting Old Radio Programs several years ago on cassette whenever I could find them but when I came across OTR, I was delighted as it was the ultimate solution to finishing my collection.(If it is ever finished).OTR eliminates searching the net. for programs to listen to. OTR has them all!!!! I have purchased over 100 hrs of programs and am still ordering more.(And am listening to them to).I am reliving my childhood when Radio was "Old Time Radio" Thank you for this site.

What a great website with even greater OTR shows! I have now placed 3 orders and have been very satisfied with the quality of the discs and the speed of delivery! I am 20 years old and I own a iPod but I love these Old Time Radio programs. Some of my favorites are Dragnet, Spy Catcher, This Is Your FBI, and Calling All Cars. I am still amazed at the quality of the dialogue and the production of shows like Dragnet. I used to subscribe to another OTR website and download the shows but this is so much faster and I get more for my money. Keep up the good work and look for my next order soon!

Thank you so much for this site. I used to listen to Breakfast Club with my Dad. We would march around the table with Aunt Fanny and Don McNeil. Anyone who would understand this is now dead in my family. My sister is 9 years younger and this has been hard to explain to her - now I can show her what it was like. This has been wonderful - thank you so much.

Thank you so much for your work on this site. I'm a fanatic about radio shows, and I'm very glad that this lost art is being revived. I was also very happy with the discs I recieved, including The Explorer's Club, Escape, and My Favorite Husband. They have the best audio quality of anything available on the web, and for very reasonable prices. I was thrilled to find that I could get all existing episodes of "Quiet Please" (the creepiest show ever on the airwaves and my favorite horror show) for a trifling $5. In contrast, the pack of unscrupulous pirates at "Radio Spirits" were cowardly enough to charge sixty dollars for a small, jumbled selection of radio shows that I could get here for only a few well-spent dollars. Once again, thank you.
