Re: [ARSCLIST] Seeking some OTR audio

Hi Randy:

Thanks for the tip. And the info on Norman Corwin.

OTR Cat quality, in my experience, is very low-grade, generally high-loss MP3 or WMA media. I was hoping for some better quality, especially if I'm going to pay for it. Does anyone know if OTR Cat went back and improved their quality from how it was a few years ago? Sorry, just my pet phobia about digi-swishies -- I don't even like them around 70-year-old transcription audio several generations removed.

Hello, Tom--

Try the OTRCAT website; they sell mp3s of radio shows
on compact disc.  The quality varies from excellent to
barely decipherable, with most shows being in fairly
good shape.  I searched their website for "An American
in England" and got the following results.



As you may know, Norman Corwin is still healthy and
active at 97 and still teaches in Los Angeles.  He's
also active with Peggy Webber's California Artists
Radio Theater.  (Leonard Maltin has some recent
pictures of him in the "Leonard's Journal" section of
his website:

All the best--
