rand’s esoteric otr


rand’s esoteric otr   A weblog and podcast featuring vintage broadcasts directly transferred from original transcriptions.

Quotes from the blog:

"This blog and podcast features recordings of unusual and esoteric original 16" radio transcriptions from my personal collection - shows that aren't widely circulated among OTR (old time radio) collectors."

"Transcriptions were used from the 1930s through the 1950s to distribute syndicated radio shows to stations. They're 16" discs, usually made of vinyl like modern records, but sometimes pressed of thick, heavy shellac, like a 78. The discs hold a maximum of 15 minutes per side. For playback, they require a special turntable and a wide-groove 78 needle, along with proper equalization for proper reproduction on modern equipment."
