Sure. I’m not sure what OTTR already has but when I get back from dinner tonight I’ll make DropBox shares for Sherlock Holmes and Squad Cars.
Might you be willing to share Springbok?
I have 210 BBC Sherlock Holmes episodes ranging from 1945 to 2010. Would we consider the 65 that are prior to 1962 OTR? Or is the BBC just BBC? And I have 47 Springbok episodes from the 80’s. You can’t not like Springbok (Squad Cars!) but you just can’t call it OTR. I kind-of think OTR is an American thing. Fun to talk about.

Scott, I have dozens of BBC dramas on cassettes, and most of the ones I have listened to are very good. I do not think that any are in the OTRR Library collection, probably because most people do not consider them to be old-time radio.
Thank you for your comments about The Little Things in Life. It seems that you might think it qualifies as an old-time radio series.
