I listen to them on XM radio. But, I have a better collection than they do. I probably have 40,000 shows on tape and MP3 cd's, and have listened to most of them.

I have an extensive mp3 collection, concentrated in 30's serials, Bob and Ray and one of the all-time greats, Jean Shepherd.

I used to be a huge fan of pre-television radio programs back in the 70's. Thanks for the tips guys, you've just restored a forgotten pastime of mine! Only this time I can enjoy the old shows whilst puffing away on my pipe.

I remember as a child having the first radio in the neighborhood and listening to Fibber McGee and Molly, and having dozens of neighbors on the porch listening to the radio thru the screen windows , Mom didn't like it much not that she was not a caring person, but Cajun hospitality meant she had to serve all of them coffee. Whew!

I enjoy Fibber McGee, The Great Gilderslieve

Burns and Allen to name a few. I subscribe

to a pay site off and on to record shows to

my computer and listen to them in my car.

I too have a large MP3 collection, but the favorites I return to over and over include (in no special order):
Johnny Dollar (Bob Bailey of course), ILAM, Vic & Sade, Gunsmoke, Information Please, Adventures of Sam Spade, Great Gildersleeve

Let's not forget this truly awful radio show, Lonesome Gal. Listen to the Bond Street pipe tobacco commercials! https://ia902301.us.archive.org/7/items/LonesomeGal_431/Lg1951-02-06ItsTooLateNow.mp3

When I was a kid we use to go camping on our pontoon boat. My dad would put on some old time radio dramas and we would listen to them before bed.

As a Disc-Jockey in the early-mid 70S, part of my job was to run these old programs on Friday nights. Wish I still had those tapes...

Weezell: go to www.archive.org and you can get thousands of shows free.

All the time. In fact, I usually play an episode of Great Detectives of Old Time Radio (http://www.greatdetectives.net/detectives/) to put me to sleep. (Stop laughing. I started listening to a transistor radio to put me to sleep when I was 4.)

I listen to:

Audionoir.com

RoswellRadio.com

RelisRadio.com

RokRadio.com

and many others.
I have been listening to old time radio since my father turned me onto it when I was a kid. He obtained some cassettes of old shows back when getting them on 8-track was still an option.
