About This Library

This Library has been created as an alternative to the many FTP pay sites that can be found on the internet.  OTRR is dedicated to providing the community with free downloadable old time radio programs.  While it is true that we spend many thousands of dollars each year acquiring new materials, we will never make a charge to the general public for any of that material.

/
/
/If you operate a FREE downloadable site, please let us know so that we can place a link to your site, or if you know of a great otr site, we’ll link to that as well.  You can e-mail me at beshiresjimatyahoodotcom.

/
/Additionally there are many fine dealers who do originate new materials, mainly in the form of Audio Cds, and we strongly urge you to support these.  By purchasing from them, you enable them to continue to search, purchase, encode and provide these series.

    /I wondered if you can have an option for series that can be downloaded in one download (or if they’re many, in groups of downloads) so that you don’t need to individually download each show seperately. (maybe in sections of 700 mb to fit on a CD easily.
    /
    /
    /
    /Also, if an option to download them Zipped, therefore you can download more without taking up the resources of the library for downloading

      You could try using ‘firefox’ as it allows multiple downloads and you can also set limits on your downloads. I use it a lot on other sites, but it is very easy to exceed the limit imposed by this site which will get you in the s… trouble, and barred. and hey, whats the rush? Quality is what you seem to get here, and thats better than quantity any day, isnt it?

    /This is for the “I Found a Mistake” category. The Suspense episode listed in the library as being 47-12-19 (276) “Wet Saturday” is actually the earlier 42-06-24 broadcast.

    I’ve created a username / Password .. but when I try to actually download anything it doesnt accept the username / password. Is there a seperate procedure for creating a user account for downloading versus posting on the blog.
