Here's another great Classic Radio resource!

Just want to thank Ted Davenport over at who helped me spend part of my tax refund on a quantity of new shows!  Ted is one of the few vendors who still sells CASSETTE tapes as well as mp3 CD's of darned good quality!

(Hint:  If you follow him on Facebook at you'll find he posts some neat shows for free from time to time!)

If you enjoy our program, would you consider a little help here?

I've been fortunate to be able to travel to the Philippines twice in the last two years to spend a little time with my lovely fiancee.  Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond my control my planned vacation before she travels to Japan is short of funds. 

If you enjoy Classic Radio Theater, a few bucks to help our last time together for what might be a few years would be greatly appreciated.

FREE online Classic Radio resources

There are a great number of free or low cost Classic Radio resources online that you might be interested in exploring.

Jerry Haendiges has been in the Old Time Radio collecting hobby for YEARS and produces a weekly radio program.  His website has radio logs, articles. links, and programs for sale.  Some of his shows he has posted for free at

Another great source for Classic Radio information and collecting is the Digital Deli at where you'll find a lot of articles and free downloads!  Yes, they have a pay section that contains buckets full of great shows, but the prices are amazing.  If you have a little bit of tech savvy, you can grab a bunch of shows to listen to during those hours that you're NOT listening to Classic Radio Theater!   

Note:  I tried to subscribe to the Digital Deli's FTP service.  I say tried because I was unable to contact the operators of the Digital Deli for two weeks and finally ended up requesting a refund.  It now appears the site is totally offline.  You can probably access some of the information on the site by using the Wayback Machine.

Wanna help me get new Classic Radio Theater shows?

A number of you have asked about helping me expand our program library.  And the truth is I can always use upgraded and better quality programs.  If you'd like to send a small token, a Gift Certificate would be a nice gift.  

Any amount will help me bring new and better quality programs.  Just go right here:

Our email address is classicradiotheater at gmail dot com.  

And thanks for thinking of me.

Another book, more reasonably priced....

Some of you were sticker-shocked at the price of what I consider the Bible of Old Time Radio, so I thought I'd post here another more popularly priced book, Carl Amari and Martin Grams "The Top 100 Classic Radio Shows"

I've read some of Martin's writings, and I've known Carl's work for some time.  Now this book is limited in scope to just 100 shows, or should I say, 100 series, but for the price, you can sacrifice some of the less popular series and enjoy not only the photos but the three audio CD's that are included with the book.

If you're bargain minded and don't mind an older volume, Amazon still has used copies of John Dunning's Tune In Yesterday: The Ultimate Encyclopedia of Old-Time Radio, 1925-1976.  This is Dunning's earlier and less complete version of On The Air.

If you want someplace to start, this is a good spot.  For under $15, you can get some great reading.
