About this Old Time Radio Show

Text on OTRCAT.com ©2001-2016 OTRCAT INC All Rights Reserved. Reproduction is prohibited.

Rin Tin TinThis collection contains many rare episodes of western-theme old time radio shows, many of which are the only known existing episodes to have survived. Included in the collection are episodes from:

  • Death Valley Days
  • Rin Tin Tin
  • Saunders of the Circle X
  • Silver Eagle
  • Wild Bill Elliott
  • Zane Grey
    .... and much more!

One of the first genres that highlighted a uniquely American-historical subject was western-theme television, radio, comic books, and film. This genre began in the 1880's and gained popularity through the 1950s and 1960's and continues today. This collection includes some of the most rare western-theme old time radio shows known to exist.

Death Valley DaysThis collection celebrates the rare radio shows celebrating and exploring the western genre. Death Valley Days was an extremely popular show in the late 1930s and was based on true western stories about bandits, rangers, and other western themes. Rin Tin Tin is most known for his films and television shows, but the famous dog also starred in a radio show; there are some very rare episodes included with this collection. Additionally there is a number of "Other Episodes with Western Themes" in a folder which contains some excellent episodes from various other series (including Lux Radio Theater, Bill Stern, Silver Theater, Suspense and others...) all with a western flair.

For more adventurous animals, see also: Adventures of Champion (Gene Autry's Horse), Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, The Challenge of the Yukon, and the Original OTRCAT Dog Collection.
