You are my go to source for Christmas and Birthday gifts
for my Dad. I need for him to dig out all his samplers and let me know which ones he is missing. I'm kind of hoping he has a double someplace so he can send it to me. *lol* Thank you for your prompt shipping!

My mother introduced me to the wonders of radio when I was very young. Since the only way I could see our RCA black and white television was me staring at close range to it due to my vision impairment.

Her first program she introduced me to was The Lone Ranger and what an impact that made on a 4 year old! (I even had a chance to thank Fred Foy in 1993 at an otr convention for being 'my storyteller'. My birthday August 31, 1955 was the last day of recording original Lone Ranger with Brace Beemer!)

Then she went on to introduce me to programs that would educate me and I slightly remember this program as being one of those. There were a few programs of this type that I enjoyed. I remember listening to 'Heartbeat Theater' in 1963 on WMAL-AM 630 and the story of a little girl who happens to dial the Salvation Army number on the phone. As she talks to our caring hero he finds out that this little girl's mother has fallen ill and might die. This little girl doesn't know anything about where her address is or even her telephone number and of course at this time there were no Caller-IDs to refer to. So the hero of our story has the girl describe her location in what she sees outside her window and viola the mother is saved. I still remember that story because the voice of the little girl was I think portrayed by June Foray!

Anyway all this to say these radio programs popped up more frequently on the radio when the big networks moved to TV and only smaller organizations and groups sponsored and underwrote these type of shows. Alas I miss the big network offerings when I hear a really good one; but today with the Internet and radio acting groups doing such fine work I know the art form of radio will not die it will just be rediscovered again and again.

I order quite a bit on line and your company is without a doubt the best when it comes to customer service and value for the money. Thanks again and I hope you have a wonderful Christmas!

I am a satisfied customer who has purchased perhaps 25 discs from you. I *do* enjoy these old shows --- many pleasant memories for me. Back in the old days, when I was a child, I listened raptly to the radio while kneading those plastic bags of margarine for my parents in order to turn the margarine yellow and to look like "real butter". And yes, I remember breaking a few bags in the process, and I remember being told " Pay attention to what you're doing!" Of course, I was paying attention to the radio, not to the margarine.

I love listening to OTR radio. Sometimes, actually, many times I wish I could turn back the clock to when the programs were live. I was born in 1953 so have no memory of radio. Recently, while having dinner with my folks, my dad said that Jello for desert reminded him of the Jack Benny program. I was thrilled that I knew what he was referring to:-)

Once again OTRcat discs have safely crossed the big pond and I have more goodies to listen to as I drive around. Thanks for the usual good service and for the effort you folks put into gathering these shows together.

I am so excited about finding your website! My mom is turning 80 in a few weeks and i can't wait to give her these cds. As a kid i heard about the radio shows she listened to long ago and i thought it was a long-shot to find anything out about them. It's amazing what you can find with the internet/ I was blown away by the awesome collections you offer and even more-so by the affordability! I don't think i have ever been so excited about a gift for anyone. She will be so happy and hopefully will enjoy countless hours of listening to the shows she remembers so well. THANK YOU SO MUCH!

I REMEMBER LISTEING TO DR IQ ON THE RADIO

AND LATER ON TV WHAT S MY LINE AND I OUEEN FOR A DAY AND MANY OTHERS

I know I have well over 1,000 radio programs from OTRCat. Many of their shows are free, and I have bought hundreds of others.

Otr is one of the best places ever to buy Old Time Radio shows I am and have been a long time old time radio show buff and I bought some of the best old time radio shows available from Jon the owner the service and selections he provides to customers like me is the best on the market I recommend this company to anyone who is interested in Old Time Radio they are the BEST!

I especially enjoy Bergen and McCarthy. ( I love Mortimer Snerd.) They were as witty, funny and outrageous as The Marx Brothers, W.C. Field and the other great comedians of that era. God bless you for bring their joy back to the world. P.S. "Mortimer how can you be so stupid."

I have ordered from you and I am astounded! I was able to upload the files to my Playstation 3 and then download them on to my Vita so I can listen to them with headphones. I will be ordering again, you guys are great. I had to retire this year due to medical issues and I have an extensive collection on cassette. I am only 49, but I have received many hours of enjoyment from these programs. I am crippled by spinal arthritis, but listening to these shows helps distract me from the pain. I am saving up for the Lux Theater collection.

I know that eventually I will be housebound more and more and listening to the shows will help. It actually snowed a tiny bit yesterday. My wife uses parts of my collections to motivate her blind students. They love Superman. Whenever I can scrape some money together, I will be ordering from you.

I listened to my Vita last night and it worked beautifully!

Hello Friends. I just wanted to leave a note stating that I have been ordering from Jon for awhile and never been disappointed by my order. I just received the CBS Radio Mystery Theater (every episode of course- 26 discs- I wouldn't have it any other way!) and it is awesome. I have wanted this huge collection for a long time but managed to convince myself that I didn't need it.(A difficult task!) Jons "spooky sale" was just the push I needed and I gave in and ordered. I'm so glad I did. CBS Mystery Theater is the show that got me hooked on OTR. They played it on a late night program when I was 12 years old. It was a new and fun experience I'll never forget. Now at the ripe old age of 30 I intend to order from Jon for years to come. You can never have enough OTR! Thanks Jon! Take care friends. God Bless.

My legally blind grandmother was feeling blue because she couldn't enjoy watching "I Love Lucy" anymore. I bought her the simplest mp3 player made, and every episode of "My Favorite Husband" from OTRCAT. She was so delighted to have "new" episodes of Lucy that she could enjoy fully, without wondering what she was missing. Thanks for making her day!

When I was 10 years old, back in 1953, I listened in awe to the original JOURNEY INTO SPACE serial (recently bought again from you, for sheer convenience and now listening in the car!!). It was nearing its conclusion when I went down with appendicitis and spent New Year 1954 in Booth Hall Children's Hospital, Manchester, England. I was distraught and resigned to missing the episodes on 29th Dec & 5 Jan......the episodes dealing with the climactic meeting with the Time Traveler!!

Not for us the luxuries of tape recorders or iPods.....my dad, however, was equal to the task and took down the entire episodes, live, in Pitman's Shorthand and I lay there enthralled in my hospital bed, with my eyes closed, whilst he read them out, verbatim and in full.

Even though the serial we now hear is a 1958 remake, when I listen to it I can still 'hear' my dad, as David Kossoff, as Lemmy Barnett, yelling in fear and running away in fear from the first sight of The Time Traveler.....!! Now, you won't get THAT in a Podcast!!

Keep up the good work.
