OBTAINING ACTUAL COPIES:
Due to download space, it would be impossible for us to offer them here.   However, most of these programs can obtained via various websites [just go on any internet search engine, and type in the program/episode name] some allow free downloading, while others as for a minimal cost.   [The average about 30 cents each].

If worst comes to worst, you can obtain the from the museum [see appendix C], but we recommend a service like OTRCAT, etc.

PRICES:
Fortunately, or unfortunately depending upon circumstances, audio Old Time Radio programs of and by themselves have little or no monetary value.   This is because, for the most part, these OTRís have no copy right protection and thus anyone is free to make and distribute copies.   Adding to this the fact that the OTR community is (for the most part) a sharing community, and one can see why the value per OTR recording is only about 30 cents.
