29056Re: [OTRMP3] How did you get hooked on OTR?
- May 1, 2003I'm 36 years old now, so the golden age of radio had already ended
when I was born. I guess I was around ten or eleven when I found a
local am station that played old-time radio at nights from 8PM-10pm,
sometimes until midnight. I remember going to bed and listening to
radio shows from my little transistor radio I had underneath my
pillow. One night the host, Gary Hodson, gave out some addresses to a
couple of otr mail-order companies. I started ordering radio shows
from THE RADIO VAULT. They were really nice people and I could get 2
shows on a tape for about $2.00 (I didn't know about trading at the
time). Over the years I built up my tape collection to about 500
tapes. Then I discovered the internet and distros and now I have more
shows than I could possibly listen to!
