The Internet OTR Digest

The Internet OTR Digest first appeared in 1994. It is an eclectic collection of articles about old time radio programs, collecting, tips and other material. Almost all of the material is contributed by subscribers, many of whom are recognized personalities or experts in the area. The OTR Digest is emailed (usually every night) to subscribers.

The OTR Digest offers content that is exclusively related to old-time radio. The mail group is maintained by a long-time OTR fan, participant in many OTR conventions, and internet guru, who promises spam-free editions with good "flame" and off-topic prevention, as well as articles by guest experts.
