Updated and Information

Saturday, November 8th, 2008

The following series have been added -
/
/Line-Up, The
/
/Listener’s Playhouse
/
/Little Evil Things
/
/Little Old Hollywood
/
/Little Orphan Annie
/
/
/
/We have added about 40 new borrowers within the past week.  Apparently a post was made in another group or forum about the availability of free downloads of old time radio programs, and many responded to it.  While we do want to have new members, please do not make a general announcement about the OTRRLibrary in any group or forum. 
/
/
/
/Here’s the reason why.  When you do so, dozens of people respond.  As my time is limited and I only issue new cards about one a week, you can see the backlog that would accumulate, and then I start getting nasty e-mails from people wanting to know why they have not received their card yet!  Also, when dozens of new people get cards, they start downloading like crazy!  Many of them want to get everything at once, and I see people who’ve downloaded 3 or 4 gigs in a day or so.  This puts an enormous strain on our bandwidth.  Yes, we do have unlimited bandwidth, but we don’t want to press our luck with our server.  However, the number of people who are signed on at the same time is limited, and when a whole bunch are on at once, the server starts governouring the bandwidth, and decreases the speed for everyone.
/
/
/
/ In the month of October, 193 members downloaded 151 gigs of files!  That’s a lot.  I’m glad and the OTRR doesn’t mind that.  We have hundreds more series we will be uploading and many, many newly discovered episodes as well.
/
/
/
/So, if you want to recommend this site to your friends, please use private e-mails, instead on posting to a group or forum.  That would help us a lot.
/
/
/
/The FAQS have been updated.  Please read to get the new information.
/
/
/
/Some people have asked how this site is paid for.  The Old Time Radio Researchers group foots the bill for this one and also for www.ottr.org.  Our other two sites are funded by private members who foot the bill.  However, if they request financial aid, we will supply it to them.  The OTRR has a group of about 54 people who contribute $5.00 each a month to help purchase new series and episodes.  We’ve also purchased many transcription disks.  In the past two years, OTRR has spent $12,000.00 to fund its various projects.  Additionally we contributed about $1,000 in funds and other donations to the 2008 Cincinatti OTR Convention.  This year, it will go over $2,000.  So, you can see we’ve spent about $15,000 just in the past two years.  This does not include funds spent by individual members.  All of this goes to benefit the old time radio community, as we make no charge for anything we distribute.
/
/
/
/You will never be charged for anything you download from the OTRR Library, nor will you be requested to ‘donate’ any funds.  However, if you are so inclined to donate series or episodes not in the library, we welcome them.  Information on how to do this is available on request.  If you are inclined to contribute to the OTRR group, you are welcome, but, it is not required.
/
/
/
/If you do wish to donate, you may do so by sending any amount via paypal to tony_senior@yahoo.com .
/
/Be sure to mention that it is a donation to support the work of the Old Time Radio Researchers Group.  You may contribute via mail to:

/
/All donations will be appreciated and you will receive a ‘thank-you’, and also be referenced in a future issue of ‘The Old Radio Times’.
/
/
/
/Be on the look-out for additional series and episodes real soon!
