that that episode is known to exist in some form. It may be on reel-
to-reel, cassette tape, transcription disc, mp3 or simply in the
hands of one of the old time collectors who, for various reasons,
choose not to share them.
Our sister group, OTR Researchers attempts to track down episodes
known to exist in formats other than mp3. Thus far this year we've
purchased well in excess of $2000.00 worth of new materials, the
first in the form of the Smiley Burnette distro, which is now
underway in another of our sister groups, OTR Distro. That series
alone cost us in excess of $300.00. We've recently received a
donation of about 2500 cassettes full of stuff. It's in the process
of being cataloged now. Additionally, I'm sitting on about 15gb of
new materials awaiting to be distributed, and Doug has about the
same amount. We have lots of new stuff and getting more each day.
The problem is getting it encoded(you have to do it in real time),
into the hands of people to put together, etc, etc. This is not a
quick process, it takes time.
I can assure you of this fact. The Old Time Radio Researchers Group
has more new stuff than any other group. Our certified series are
the best in existance, and we are constancely working to make them
Otter Project exists to mainly work on logs and ensuring that
series/episodes/dates/etc are correct, so if you are just a member
here and not in the OTR Researchers or OTRR Distro group, you are
missing out on well over half the good stuff. If you say jimb sent
you, you'll have a 'Golden Ticket' for admittance!
