<< Old Time Radio Articles


First recollection had to be around 1951. Back then no tv in every house in Topeka Ks. so regardless if I was at my Grandmothers or at home it was the Shadow, Mr. Chameleon, Lone Ranger, Sgt. Preston, etc.and a host of soaps as it was Grandma's fave entertainment. Dad and I crowded around the old Zenith to listen the Grand Old Opera and Judy Canova in the eves. The memories never left me so that brings me to the present whereas I have been listening to OTR as I fall asleep these past 35 years.


I was probably eight or 10 when I first became interested in OTR. A local AM station used to play one of those syndicated shows that had a couple episodes of different shows. I fell most in love with the detective ones, and they are still my favorites nearly 40 years later. Marlowe, Spade, Diamond, Shayne, etc… I have been fortunate now to find a couple of internet stations that play nothing but the mysteries and detective shows. I fall asleep listening to them and love how I either dream I am part of the show, or wake up during another show and my brain just puts them together.


As always, the quality is excellent. Always happy with my purchases. So many great memories! If I was a millionaire, I'd buy out your entire catalogue - But I'll settle for more radio than I can listen to in a lifetime a little bit at a time. Thanks for keeping old time radio alive :)


I want to thank you all for your great customer service. Just received another order of MP3 CD's and can't wait to listen to them. I suffer from insomnia, but with the help of your radio shows, I'm able to fall asleep without having to take any medication. In addition, I listen to your shows while I'm out on my walks; the time just flies by. Please keep up the good work


I do tell people as this is my favorite form of entertainment. They play all night and when I sleep, I replay where I fell asleep until I hear all.


Want to say thanks for providing this service. Enjoy the recordings immensely, can't go t sleep with out listening to Bogey and Bacall.
