FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 1 of 3
What should I do first?
The first thing you should do is to read the blog ! It will give you the latest information about the site, and news that you need to know.

The second is to stick a pin in the map showing your location.

Who sponsors this site?
This site is sponsored by the OLD TIME RADIO RESEARCHERS, who sponsor a Yahoo group, a FACEBOOK GROUP and a website . Members and friends contribute to the cost of the server.

Are the programs here really free?
Yes, all programs are available for free downloads. They have been provided for your listening pleasure. Members have contributed them from their personal libraries.

Why is this site up when you can purchase mp3 files from FTP dealers?
This site is here to make sure that old time radio programs in mp3 format are available for free, for those not wishing to pay FTP sites for the right to download them. The vast majority of FTP dealers do not originate the material they sell, there being a few exceptions. Many of them get their material from one of the many otr groups located at Yahoo, from one of the local clubs, from purchasing it on eBay, or by becoming a member of another FTP site under a ficticious name. So they get it either free or extremely cheap and try to get you to pay for the right to download it. Their claim is that they are not ‘selling’ the program, they are just charging you for bandwidth to download it. Some say that you can make a donation. But if you do not pay or make a 'donation', you are limited to what you can download. There are no bandwidth charges, fees, or required to download from the OTRRLibrary. All our programs are entirely free.

How can I know the programs are right? So many that the MP3 dealers sell are mis-named, mis-dated, duplicates or are just wrong.
Our programs are verified by the database program OTTER , which generally catches most errors. However, some few are missed. So we have members who download and listen to every episode to verify its correctness. When they find a problem, they let us know, and we will let you know about it by posting to the blog. If possible, we will find a corrected or better episode.
