FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 3 of 3

I'd like to contribute series or episodes to the Library. How do I go about doing that?
That's great! we encourage people to donate to the Library. However all files donated must be in the Uniform Naming Code adopted by the OTRR. Files should be named thusly
Series Name - yymmdd - ep# - episode title.

I'm a member of another group or forum. Can I post a notice there about this free Library?
Feel free to do so . We welcome new borrowers to the Library.

I notice that you have a list of dealers who do sell old time radio programs. What’s that all about?
Yes, we do recommend some old time radio dealers. These are people who we feel should be supported. They primarily sell otr as audio files, and the vast majority of them introduce new materials to the hobby on a regular basis. We feel that they are entitled to make a profit in order for them to continue to make new series/episodes available. And if you prefer to have old time radio programs on CD audios or in extremely high qualith audio, we highly recommend that you consider purchasing from these fine people. Most of them work closely with the OTRR organization, and supply us with needed materials, on request. Support those who have made this hobby what it is.

I like to listen to these programs. Are there organizations that I can join and support?
Yes, there are. You can do a search on Google for ‘old time radio organizations' that will give you a large number of groups that you can join. Additionally, there are many fine local clubs that would be happy to have you as a supporting member. You can find a list of these recommended clubs at The Old Time Radio Club Network .

You can also access the Old Time Radio Researchers website and join their Forum. This is the largest of the internet organizations and is international in scope. We have members in over 20 countries, all working to research, preserve and make available the finest in old time radio, all free to those requesting it.

You may also find a wide range of old time radio programs available at the Archive Library site. Just do a search on ‘old time radio’ in the search engine, located on their home page.

I want to start my own FTP Pay site. Can I download programs from here to start with?
Well, you could, but that would not be honest or ethical. This site is free. Why would you want to offer programs anyone can get here for free? Anyone who we discover is downloading from the OTRRLibrary and re-offering series/episodes for a charge will be dropped and the computer id noted so that they will be prevented from ever becoming a member again. Please do not abuse the generosity of the members and friends of the Old Time Radio Researchers organization.
