/Hope that you all enjoy them.  The FAQ has been updated, please read it to make sure you are current on the Library Rules. 
/
/
/
/We have discovered one person who was downloading from the Library, and also from the OTR on archive.org and putting up on a FPT site and charging for downloads!!!  This individual had also purchased a collection from an on-line source that is famous for ‘taking’ from everyone.  That on-line source’s otr is known for its mistakes, errors, duplicate and triplicate episodes, misnamed, etc.  You name it, it contains it.  That’s what happens when you just grab everything in site with worrying if it’s correct or not.
/
/
/
/We hope to put up a lot of new stuff as a Christmas bonus for you, if I can find the time.  Keep looking.

OF CABBAGES AND KINGS AND VARIOUS THINGS

Wednesday, December 10th, 2008

Hello all,
/
/
/
/This has been an extremely busy past week or so for me.  I’m trying to do finishing work on nearly 20 gigs,(Yes, you read that right, 20 gigs) of previously unreleased material.  We have some exciting stuff coming down the pipeline!  OTRR is continuing to lead the pack in new material, better material, and in general working to increase old time radio’s presence in the general community.  If you are not already a member of our organization, you might want to consider joining, so that you can be on the cutting edge!
/
/
/
/NEW SERIES -
/
/Orson Wells Radio Almanac
/
/Our Brave Boys
/
/Our Freedom’s Blessings
/
/Our Gal Sunday
/
/Our Miss Brooks
/
/Out Of The Night
/
/Out Of The Night – AU
/
/Out Of The Deep
/
/Out Of The Silent Planet
/
/Over Here
/
/Ozzie And Harriett
/
/
/
/Additionally, we’ll be uploading to the library some previously unavailable series and episodes over the coming days,  Keep your eyes peeled!
/
/
/
/Some of you might want to monitor your bandwidth.  It’s only the 10th of the month, and some of you are dangerously close to the 10gig download limit for the month.  If you exceed that limit, your privileges will be cut off and you will have to re-apply for a card at the beginning of the new month.  I DO NOT keep names and passwords, so it’s useless to e-mail me for them.  Also remember if bandwidth is continued to be exceeded on a regular basis, you will be banned from the library.
/
/
/
/Let’s face it – there is no way that you can listen to 10 gigs of files in a month.  I know that some of you are new, and I was once also.  You just want to immerse yourself in otr!  But please remember, We have a two year lease on this server.  We are not going anywhere.  Also remember the server does place a limit on the number of people who can download at any given time, so please play fair.  You will have your chance to get what you want!
/
/
/
/If you think you have missing episodes in series we have already uploaded, we’d love to have them.  Please consider giving back to the community.  Many people sent $$$$$ and hours to make these programs available to you for free.  We don’t ask anything in return, except for you to share any programs you may have that we don’t.

/Write when you can, and until then, hang by your thumbs!
