When I can, I'd like to start adding a little music to the mix. Music is just as much a part of Old Time Radio as is Mystery, Drama, Comedy, Horror, and Sci-Fi. Unfortunately, while most Old Time Radio shows are in the public domain, most music is not. So I am going to restrict myself to music recorded before 1939 --- 78s... 45s... maybe some old cylinder recordings.
I will be more than happy to play any one request in the Listening Booth, or post it privately on a hidden page. However, if you would like to request more than one half-hour show, then it will require a contribution in the form of written reviews which I will post in the Plot Archives (some folks have offered money, but I do not sell shows, nor accept donations).
There are only 2 forms of payment I do accept: Reviews or Trades from the list of Lost Shows
1st requested show (1/2 hour) = Free
After that, 1 written review per every half-hour of show. (A one-hour show will cost you two reviews, etc.)
CBS Radio Mystery Theater shows (45 min long) will be treated as a half-hour show.
If you want something quite long, such as 'Fatherland', be prepared to do a lot of writing.
This may seem like an odd policy, but I have been inundated lately with requests for multiple shows, and simply do not have the time to fulfil them all. Many of these requests have to be hunted down if they are not in my collection, which sucks up more time and even money, as I pay for FTP subscriptions which charge by how much I download from them. Thus, I am using up my paid access for nothing in return. Not a big deal when it comes to a request here and there, but as the site has become more popular, it has become an untenable situation.
Thanks for your patronage and understanding.
