OK. I admit I've bought a lot of shows from disk dealers over the years.

I've had some conversations with some of the OTR purists that say, you should never pay for OTR shows.

I understand their position. They've taken the time and expense to convert these shows from tape to mp3 and provide them for free.

Still, sometimes it's nice to get a DVD with all of the shows you want and not have to download them.

What disk dealers have you purchased from that you feel you received a good deal from.

I've purchased a lot of shows from otrcat.com. Good quality and decent prices. I'm always looking for good quality shows. Who do you recommend?

Most of the shows I have paid for have come from OTRCAT. I have bought from sellers on eBay. Sometimes that has been good and sometimes not so good.

Yes, OTRCAT was always pretty reliable for me, and I bought a couple of things from a Canadian site I cant remember offhand

    I've purchased transcription discs from ebay . . . I also found a library in Indiana that has over 1,000 cassettes of various old radio programs . . .

    It's in Indiana, near Indy and if you're not a resident you have no access. I have 3 daughters that live there . . .

    If you look in Detroit's library system, you'll find quite a few, Randy . .

The only two dealers I've dealt with, in the past are Bobby's OTR and OTR Cat. I have received excellent service from both parties....Bobby and Jon. I don't hear too much from Bobby (adverts, etc.)...but am always getting them from Jon, via e-mail.
