    I have been a otr collector for about fifteen years, and a very happy customer of yours for at least five of those years. I've gotten all of your Random Rarities collection plus other fine recordings, and I am waiting for more Random Rareity discs. I also appreciate your online availability of shows that I have purchased. Your kindness and love for these shows and your fellow otr fans and collectors is truly wonderful. Thank you for making your customers feel very special. Really. As I am a blind person, I especially love this art form, old time radio and even its more modern throwbacks. Thanks again.

    Today, I listened to disc # 8. It was a good representative of the 1940's. The first program, Soldiers in Greasepaint, was a Thanksgiving Special to entertain the troops with comedy from the likes of Hope and Benny to musical interludes including Jascha Heifitz. The second program was 15 minutes from Skelly News of the World. Since this was from 1943, the news was all war related. The last program was a show called Ramona's Mighty Minature Minstrels. Ramona played the piano while singing several songs. Her voice reminded me of Dinah Shore.
