I'm new to OTR :D But in my first attempt at a search from the OTR Main Page, I got the error message (with OTR watermark) Error in selecting oldtime_radio database
error:1044 Access denied for user 'oldtime_anon'@'localhost' to database 'oldtime_radio'.


What's to be done?

Please paste the EXACT link you attempted to use.

This site is named "old-time", not "oldtime_radio" or "oldtime"

Googled "Old Time Radio," clicked on the second hit and was instantly transported to, where I found precisely what I was looking for. Magic! Thanks for your offer of help!

Glad you found what you were looking for.

Advisory: The files at that site are in ".ram" format, rather than ".mp3" format. You probably will have to download a program to listen to 'em.

If you are interested in obtaining those shows on cassette or CD, try visiting one of our sponsors:

Amazon carries a good selection of books & CDs/DVDs on Old TIme Radio, too:

Also, you can freely download many OTR programs from the frequently updated Internet Archive, as mentioned here: ... a920fbd411
(Most of those files are MP3s, zipped to save some space)

You are welcome to stop back here frequently, to learn more about OTR, or to discuss shows with other visitors.
