Stewart Wright has contributed several broadcast logs on Old- and New-Time Radio drama series. He is an OTR researcher and writer and a former OTR newsletter editor. Stewart regularly updates his logs, so check back every so often for those updates. A zipped file of Stewart's latest, November, 2016 update can be downloaded by clicking here.

Each of Frank Passage's 165 or so logs contains a short introduction to the subject program, as well as a listing of episode titles and broadcast dates. Frank does an outstanding job of searching through several document sources and resolving potential conflicts in information, when he compiles his logs.

Frank's last update was in September, 2013. Those updates are available either by viewing the following pages, or by downloading a zipped package. Frank's full list of logs can be downloaded by clicking here.

Frank deserves the thanks of anybody that makes use of these great logs. He can be reached via email (wb2ntp@arrl.net), or via the snailmail address included in each log. If you redistribute copies of his log, please do NOT delete Frank's authorship.

There are also several well-done logs by other contributors, who cared enough to help you organize your collections. Each of them deserves your thanks too. Some additional contributors (in alphabetical order) are:

Martin Grams, respected author of many books about OTR, contributes several in-depth episode guides and background information papers.

Dick Judge, a well-known open-reel OTR dealer has been searching his private database to assemble logs for you. Some of these logs are for "revival era" radio, and describe shows that were aired after the supposed death of OTR in late 1964.

NOTES:

  1. Simply clicking on the file name will display the log. HOWEVER, if you want to save the log, RIGHT-CLICK instead of left-clicking, and follow the instructions.

Some logs are now being provided in PDF (Adobe Acrobat) format as well as in text format. Those logs are annotated with "PDF" You may obtain Adobe Reader to see the PDF files, or use your favorite PDF reader.
Many OTR collectors have found that databases are the best way to maintain their logs. Don Fehr has contributed A series of logs in .dbf (database format) , including lots of info about various shows. This is an excellent way to add to your collection of logs. If you are unfamiliar with databases, you can check the short introduction to using a database .
Did you ever wonder what was on the radio on your birthday? Jim Jones has set up a very nice site with PDF images of the radio show program guides listed in several daily newspapers, including the New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Daily Tribune, and Los Angeles Times from 1930 through 1960.
