SINGLES AND DOUBLES COLLECTION Volume 2

This is a work in progress. This OTRR Collection is a Non-Certified one, containing series in which currently only one or two episodes are known to exist -- hence the name: "Singles and Doubles Collection". Almost every type genre is included. Radio -- called by some The Theater of the Mind -- has been with us since 1920 when stations WWJ of Detroit and KDKA of Pittsburg made the first regular commercial broadcasts. The first program aimed at entertaining the unseen audience followed close behind. Over the years since then, literally thousands of series have been broadcast nationally and thousands more in regional or local markets. Some endured for a few years, others for 20 or 30, and some unfortunately only had one episode broadcast. Of those thousands, some series saw some of their episodes saved for the future, some saw nearly all and others only one or two episodes. While the goal of the Old Time Radio Researchers Group is to preserve radios past by collecting, and archiving as many different series as possible and making them available to the community, we do not want to let the series that only had a minimum number of episodes to survive go unpreserved for future generations. To that end we have put together this unique collection of series. Most of the programs you will find here will be totally unfamilar to you, but they are informative and entertaining none the less. This is the second version of this collection that we have released. Since the first collection new broadcasts have surfaced, and others will undoubtely be found in the future. When and if that occurs, we will release a version three. From comedy to drama to cooking shows to music, you'll hear it all here, and every episode will be unique and different. They run the gamut, from the middle 20s to the early 70s, all showing us a glimpse of the past, when things were slower and families gathered round the radio each evening. Times when each person was hearing the same thing, but created a different picture in their minds of what the characters looked like, the scenery, location, and most important the sounds. Sounds that each found a different meaning in, but one that entertained, educated, and made the world a smaller place, where you could hear those stories that in the past were told to just a few, gathered round the dinner table, at a campfire, or in small audiences, but now the whole world could hear and enjoy. Some of these episodes may be misnamed or misdated. If you find such, please let us know. Additionally there may be some dead air space at the beginning or ending of some episodes. This is not one of our certified sets, it is being provided as a way to obtain those series in which only one or two shows have survived. From the Old Time Radio Researcher's Group. See "Note" Section below for more information on the OTRR.

This recording is part of the Old Time Radio collection.

Reviews

thank you!

(5 stars)

you are soooo right OTTR folks - there is nothing here to criticize, as far as I can see/hear - I am soooo thankful for all the work you do! it gives me a huge amount of pleasure to have access to all these hours of old radio you provide. I'm sure you don't hear it near enough - THANK YOU. :) liz

Cannot download this version, either!

(0 stars)

I did enjoy the "Singles and Doubles Volume 1 shows." Those were in smaller, CD-size zip files. I guess I cannot get these "DVD-size" zip files. Thanks for the effort to compile these. I will download some of the individual shows, but it's not worth the effort to try to get them all.

.

(4 stars)

Isn't Clan of the Fiery Cross an episode of Superman? I didn't listen to that track, but unless there is something else by that name floating around, it doesn't belong in a singles and doubles collection. Great scoop on most of these, though.

Give Credit Where Credit Is Due

(5 stars)

Give some credit for the effort to bring you episodes you will never find anywhere else. We're sorry for the dupes, but think of the other new and unusual episodes here.
