Excellent, after just a glance I found a series I haven't heard before: Thirty-Three Half Moon Street. I'm sure I'll find more as I browse the site... thanks for sharing the link!

Looks like they have a lot there -- but I'm trying to find a site that allows downloads. This one does not. I've looked at others; some will -- but will also download weird stuff you don't want, to mess up your browser.

When it comes to buying in bulk, I like OTRCAT. I don't mind forwarding a few dollars for a complete collection. But to download a single episode, not that easy anymore. What I was looking for, specifically, is Mercury Theatre, Around the World in 80 Days, 10/23/38.

Just maybe, if no other choice, I can find it on my cell phone and copy it onto my computer. Won't be the first time, but this is an hour -- geez . . .

Seriously? A quick Google search shows that the episode you seek is on www.archive.org. You can also find it on www.otrrlibrary.org. Honestly, between those two sites, you can pretty much find and download any OTR show that is available...

I use OTRR library often...excellent downloads, and free, too! Also use Archive.org. NOTE: Archive.org now has MP3 downloads of many of the late Rich Conaty's BIG BROADCASTs.....

It gets really expensive to allow downloads. There are people that will try to download everything, whether ir not they actually want it, not caring that it costs the host site to send all that data.

I might add I've found an interesting new source, totally by surprise. Facebook has a group for those who collect radio transcriptions. I thought this might just be a casual group where I might find a few friends to chat with -- but wow! So many posts it's hard to keep up! Many of them are about disks that have just been found, recorded and available for your listening pleasure. I've got my own stack that I'll clean up and digitize someday . . .

Yes, I agree, this is pretty straightforward to find and download. When OTR shows became more available twenty or so years ago I used OTRCat as a source because the quality was good and the price was fair. More recently I have downloaded many shows from archive.org.

Hey guys, I use Firefox and an add-on "video download helper". I can download from the linked site in Mp3 format using the add-on. It works on all sorts of sites and content that doesn't have an obvious download link.

Subscribe to the newsgroups. (the other half of the internet) If your ISP doesn't (mine doesn't) then pay for it. I use https://www.fastusenet.org/? and pay $3/month for 6 gigs.
Then use a program to access it. I use Free Agent.
