Hi Jon, I am so glad I found the OTRCAT.COM website, I have been collecting OTR shows for over ten years with a collection of over 2000 cassette tapes with a max of 3 shows per tape at a price of 5-10 dollars per tape. What a terrific deal you have at only $5 a disc and normally 50 or more shows per disc, now that is value. My new car had a MP-3 disc player in it, what a blessing, I rarely have the radio playing anylonger, great on long trips. Keep up the great work big fan of westerns and the Green Hornet but many other shows too. Burns and Allen and Fred Allen and many comedies keep you laughing. Will be ordering again and again I am sure. Thank you from upstate NY.

We have ordered several times from OTRCAT and are very impressed. The website is easy to navigate, ordering and delivery is quick and the shows have great sound quality! Don't forget the bonus CD's! Wow! Please keep these great shows coming!

I'd seen and collected all the Jimmy Stewart movies I could get my hands on when I discovered OTR's The Six Shooter. Wonderful show that added a new deminsion to my admiration of this great actor. But it didn't stop there. I discovered OTRCat's James Stewart Collection, which then made me hungry for other OTR programs. I am now a fan of Mercury Theater with Orson Wells, and am enjoying the Superman series, never mind that I am 46 years old. My list of "What I will order next from OTRCAT" continues to grow. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I'm 25 years old and I happened to run across this website one day. I downloaded some samples of "Candy Matson", "Box 13", and "Black Museum" and burned them to a CD. That CD was the only thing getting me through evening rush-hour traffic! I recently ordered some shows and am eagerly awaiting their arrival!

I have been collecting otr cassettes for years - and paying top dollar for them! Decided to go "hi tec." Tried your mp3's on my computer and then bought a sony cd payer which you recommended - works great! Great value, great selection. Thanks!

I love OTRCAT. I have ordered several of the MP3 CDs and would order them all if I had the money! They are GREAT and the service is GREATER! Thanks for such a wonderful service.

I grew up with radio. Laying on the floor in front of our floor model Philco after school (homework finished first) and any hours I could sneak in on the weekends. My mom would have to force me from the house winter & summer, I was fascinated and glued to that sound and beautiful yellow light from the big, long front dial. The latter part of the '50's to the present were a slowly developing drought for radio shows and recorded shows were few, expensive and hard to find. For several years I scratched, hunted, spent large sums of money for 30 minute tapes, (of very poor quality) until ultimately finding Jon & OTRCAT. From my days of SUPERMAN, LITTLE ORPHAN ANNIE, LONE RANGER, LET'S PRETEND, RED RIDER, and that frightening 'INNER SANCTUM' that gave me nightmares and a scolding from my mother if she caught me listening to it, and all the others, until today I will always favour the entertainment from oldtime radio. I have been with Jon OTRCAT for some time now and owe him and his shows a large amount of gratitude for giving back my youth, especially since being immobile these last dozen years due to a deteriorating physical condition. I have not & will not purchase from anyone else since the first order from OTRCAT. THANK YOU!! from another loyal Canadian Fan? customer? friend!

Thanks for preserving good clean entertainment. My wife and I will be ordering some Christmas gifts from you so our children and grandchildren will have the opportunity to enjoy true American history. C.Wright Odenville, Alabama

I am 63 years old. As boy, up until the mid 1950's, I listened to Old Time Radio exclsuively. Radio tunes more than entertainment. It tunes the mind, excercises the imagination. It's the best thing to start kids 'thinking.' Something which seems to be missing in this society.

I had originally ordered all my material from OTRCAT and then one day ran across a competitor's website which promised a deal.
I had ordered the shows on DVD which I didn't realize were incompatible with my Mp3 player. Without the descriptions of the programs and content, many of the recordings lacked dates, actor information and were flat-out mislabeled. Many of the recordings were blank while others were such bad sound quality they were impossible to hear.
The other website claims they've re-organized and offer a better product, but in the long run for my listening pleasure, it's better to get OTRCAT's quality over quantity.
It's always a pleasure to visit OTRCAT any time of day, read about new collections and listen to an episode online I've never heard before.

Am enjoying all the new Mp3s that I have recieved so far. They play very well on my DVD recorder. I do plan on getting an Mp3 walkman so I can listen to them in the dark. I really love Gildersleeve and The Lone Ranger. I will probably be ordering more soon. I am happy to have discovered your web site! Keep up the good work!

I was fortunate to grow up during "the golden age of radio" and worked at WJDX(NBC) in Jackson, MS while in high school and college.
"Lum and Abner" were my favorites. I had an early wire recorder and my mother would record them while I was out delivering papers.
Your programs have been a real fount of nostalgia and entertainmet on walks and long road trips. My son in Mpls, and our Pastor have also become fans of your shows.
Thanks for the memories...
George Smythe (Huntsville, AL), May 29, 2006
Thanks to you, I have almost memorized all the Lum and Abner shows from the 40's and 50's. These old shows take me back to my grandmother's "parlor." What fun.

You have the best OTR site I've yet found! The descriptions of the various shows are fantastic. I was just old enough to catch the last of radio's Golden Era and learned to appreciate its storytelling art. Now with all the old shows available through your website, everyone can live them all again--or experience them for the first time! Great job!

You are doing wonderful work here preserving and making available this lost but vital part of our cultural past. Thanks,
