Reviews

Use Single Episodes Entry

(4 stars)

Note for those who are trying to download The Whistler collection, I found that the mp3 zip file on this page contains only one episode and the torrent did not open. Another link for this show "The Whistler Single Episodes" seems to include a working mp3 zip file. That link has higher quality audio files but of course is a big download.

Here comes the Cliche!!!

(5 stars)

I mean it when I say "IT Don't get much better than this!!!" Serious, there are only a few other shows that I can notch up to the level of The Whistler (suspense, jack benny, gunsmoke and lux radio theater) I recommend this to anybody who is new to OTR and is looking for a great program to get into!

Green with envy

(4 stars)

Thanks to OTR I am able to listen to and appreciate some of the best US radio from the last 60+ years, In the UK the BBC has provided me with excellent radio plays etc, but not to the quantity and variety that US radio companies have been able to. Oh to have been brought up in the States!!!!!

Familiar Actor's Voice in #327

(5 stars)

Aha! I recognized Bob Bruce as a salesman in #327, "A Law of Physics." Bob was the narrator voice in some of Disney cartoons. He passed away a few years ago. He wrote a book about his media experiences, "Fourth Banana."
