We’ve added two new series and two additional episodes to the
/
/library.
/
/
/
/America’s Town Meetings
/
/Shadow, The
/
/
/
/Two episodes for ‘The Kate Smith Show’.
/
/
/
/Enjoy!

Ongoing Work

Friday, October 30th, 2009

We are still making some ‘behind the scenes’ changes to
/
/the website, so if you experience any difficulty in
/
/downloading some of the series, please try a bit later.
/
/
/
/One of the changes effected the way I upload new series
/
/and we are working on fixing that.
/
/
/
/The OTRR has many, many more series and episodes to
/
/provide you for FREE, as apposed to some who charge
/
/by the gigabyte.  We give you 10 FREE gigs each month.

Library Makes Progress

Thursday, October 22nd, 2009

The OTRRLibrary is fast becoming ‘the’ place to find old time
/
/radio programs.  We continue to add new series/episodes
/
/on a regular basis, with many of them being unique to the
/
/Library, until the ftp pay sites grab them!!
/
/
/
/Currently we have about 500 gigs of programs for you to
/
/download, all for FREE.  And we have more to go.
/
/
/
/I just took a look at the figures for Sept.  We had 837
/
/borrowers from the US and 21 other countries.  They
/
/downloaded 262 gigs in September, and  the total so
/
/far this year downloaded is 1922 gigs.  That’s a lot of FREE
/
/programs for you to enjoy.
/
/
/
/We’d like to hear from our card holders as to how they use
/
/the Library, and if it is meeting their needs.  I get e-mails
/
/when something is broken or wrong, but very few people
/
/post here to the blog.  If you are using and enjoying the
/
/Library, we’d like to hear about it.  Also, we’d like to know
/
/how our card holders found out about the library.
/
/
/
/Can you take a few minutes and register for the blog, if you
/
/have not already done so, and give us your comments?
/
/I’d like to know if the hard work that went into and is still
/
/going into building this library is worth it.
/
/
/
/The site has been total redone by one of our volunteers,
/
/another uploads new stuff regularly, another maintains
/
/everything and makes sure  it works properly.  Still others
/
/have donated missing episodes and series.  Has this
/
/library been worthwhile?

Some New Additions

Wednesday, October 21st, 2009

I have gotten so  busy recently, that I’ve forgotten which series
/
/
/
/has been uploaded and which have had new episodes.  So, please
/
/
/
/bear with me this time if I get it all wrong!
/
/
/
/CBS European News (A.M. Edition)
/
/Skelly News With Alex Drier
/
/Elmer Davis(I believe has some new episodes)
/
/
/
/And finally —(trumpets sounding)
/
/Cecil And Sally now has 275 episodes, totaling just over 1 gig!
/
/
/
/A buying group got together and purchased this series from a private
/
/
/
/collector.  They spent big bucks for it, and I believe, that it is
/
/
/
/available here for the first time in mp3 format.
/
/
/
/I think that everyone should post a big ‘thank you’ to this
/
/
/
/special buying group, the leader of which is a card holder with
/
/
/
/the OTRR Library.  So please post your ‘thank you’s here so
/
/
/
/that he can see them.
/
/
/
/JimB
/
/on behalf of the Old Time Radio Researchers group and it’s
/
/friends.

/from pay ftp sites.

Fixing Problems

Wednesday, October 14th, 2009

As most of you know, in the past few days, you have been getting
/
/
/
/a lot of 403 errors.  When we updated the site, a lot of things
/
/
/
/changed.  I had to convert my files in Dreamweaver to match
/
/
/
/the changes on the site.
/
/
/
/I believe that everything is working properly(ha ha).
/
/For your patience, I’ve just added a new series – Famous Artists
/
/
/
/Of The Air.
/
/
/
/Enjoy!
