If anyone would like to join the Metropolitan Washington Old-Time Radio Club, just type MWOTRC into your search box and you will be taken to the website where you can join and pay your dues online.  Membership approval is automatic as I recall. There are some nice benefits.  It only costs $20 for a full year.  For that you receive 6 issues of Radio Recall and 6 issues of Gather 'Round the Radio, one each month in alternating months.  You will also receive an invitation to attend each month's Zoom meeting, which is held on the first Friday evening of every month.  If you have a microphone and a webcam you can attend that way, or you can phone in, or if you're like me and don't have all the high tech gadgets you can just sign in on your computer and type any comments you have into the Chat box.  The meetings are a lot of fun.  Each one has a quiz on an old-time radio topic which lets you test your knowledge.  For example, do you know the color of the Lone Ranger's horse Silver?  There are also presentations on OTR subjects.  Last year Martin Grams did one on The Green Hornet that had some great visual material.  It turns out that one of the most interesting characters in that series is the Hornet's enigmatic partner, a mysterious foreigner who murdered a man in one of the early episodes.  Now that must have been great to hear!

Also, unless I misunderstood him our own Dr. Joe Webb will be making a presentation at one of the monthly meetings in the near future.  I do not know the subject matter, but if Joe reads this perhaps he will provide that information.

Attempting a Mac Version of Database Program

Wild West Designs
 

I finally found an SDK that allowed for cross compilation to try to get the database program up and running.

Using the Godot Game Engine (I know it sounds weird using a Game Engine, but thankfully it has a low processor mode that helps with redrawing and thus RAM usage).

Click here to get a version of otrDB for Linux, Windows and/or Mac.

Now the Mac version is for the Intel version (I think that Godot will have M1 support with Version 4, but when that will be released, I dunno).  You may be able to use Rosetta (or whatever the compatibility layer is) and see if it will work in some form on M1.  While I was able to confirm that Linux and Windows versions work as expected in the program's current form, I cannot verify the Mac version, so if you have a Mac and would like to let me know if it works or not, I would appreciate the feedback.

The program has basic CRUD functionality, when I have time, I'm going to see about adding import/export table functionality using CSV files.  Make it easier for people to make, confirm accuracy and share those changes as well instead of relying on one source for all updates.

Some functionality to add:

Notes section:
At least add a word search functionality, if not search/replace as well (if that is desired).
Can actually make it more of a full blown editor if need be, depends on if there is enough demand for it

Database:
Import/Export using CSV Files
Cohesive theming of the program, no theming has been done at this stage
Functionality to the table headers to do ASC/DES for Exists, Date, Episode Number, Episode Name
Also see about adding a Comments column to all the tables in order to add story synopsis as well.

Thoughts, concerns, comments?

Thanks and hope y'all like it so far,

Evan West


Re: Jeff Regan?

Under the set of Jeff Regan there is an naming error..

The show with the name error reads...

Jeff Regan, Investigator - 0028 - 49-10-26 - Wanted To Live


It should read as..

Jeff Regan, Investigator - 0028 - 49-10-26 - The Lady Who Wanted To Live

Re: Jeff Regan?

I'm pretty sure that's a typo. Searching this group, the only announcement was for version 2007 (July 2020). It's also the version on archive.org - https://archive.org/details/OTRR_Maintained_Jeff_Regan_Investigator


Jeff Regan?

Ken Arromdee
 

http://otrr.org/?c=certified lists Jeff Regan, Investigator as version 2012. The link is to a version which is 2007. Is this a mistake or is there a newer version?


ILAM Help

Jim Jones
 

I have fianlly finished sorting, filing and tagging ALL the ILAM series (except 1). I will post them later for your perusal and download. These series will look much different from what you have now.

The one series I am having trouble with is the 1943 and 1952 versions of The Hermit of San Felipe Atabapo. Most of the 43's are actually 52's. Many of the episodes are partials, some have no intros, some have no closings, many are dupes, the sound quality is extremely poor....

Does anyone have access to the scripts for this show? Either 1943 or 1952 would be helpful.

Thanks

Greetings, MWOTRC Members,

 

This Friday evening, we will have MWOTRC Zoom Meeting #12, for those of you keeping score at home.  

 

For our First Fifteen, Jack French will tell us about “Irene Delroy”, one of the first crime-solvers on radio. She debuted in 1932 via a syndicated series produced and marketed by Transco of Hollywood during the Great Depression.  Irene was a musical film star for Warner Brothers and Transco allowed her to use her real name in this radio series.  

 

This month, Jack’s “Fur and Feathers” quiz will concentrate on dogs, horses, and even flying friends in OTR.   Be prepared to answer questions about Lassie, Rin-Tin-Tin, and all the other creatures of nature that appeared on the airwaves, some of them on their very own shows. 

 

For our main course, Frank  Morgan will tell us about my favorite OTR genre, police procedurals.  

 

We look forward to seeing / hearing you all there.  Note that you do not need a computer to join the meeting.  You can join using a cell phone or land line.  Please see instructions below.  

 

Important Note:  This meeting info must NOT be posted to broad social media platforms. That helps to protect us from disruption from "Zoom Bombers".

This is just for Table view.

Re: To All Members Who Have Submitted Favorite Episodes To Me

Larry Maupin
 

John, thank you for your comment.  It gives me a chance to state that I have all the favorite episodes I need now for the column in the June issue of Radio Recall.

But if I receive more nominations (I like your word) that meet the requirements (episode title and date, the name of the series and a paragraph explaining why you like it so much, plus your name and place of residence) I will begin stockpiling them right now for future issues.

Just one more note.  I don't care for Christmas shows or for episodes that almost everybody has already heard.  We have had discussions before about favorite episodes on this message board, and the Christmas shows mentioned seem to be the same ones over and over.

Best regards,

Larry

I have a program called total recorder  from http://hcserv1.highcriteria.com/ which records anything played on your computer.  If you got the standard edition for $18, you could listen to the files and record them at the same time.

Yes. The old site works fine. Downloads work as advertised. However, the old site does NOT have the files listed below. It does not have the 1939 (actually 1949) files of Fear That Crept Like a Cat. It does have listings for the 1949 files, but they are really the 1996 recreation files. This is what I am trying to straighten out.
 
The new site lists them, plays them, but does not download them.
 
Sorry for the confusion.

On the NEW site, when you switch between the CHART view and the LIST view the following files disappear.

They play, but don't download. 
The shows are dated 1939. However, the 1st 15 are actually Mutual broadcasts from 1949. The last 5 are from a 1996 recreation.

These shows are on the OLD web page, but with different titles and harder to find.

Also, IF ANYONE HAS "THE FEAR THAT CREPT (CREEPS) LIKE A CAT" EPISODES 16-20 WITH MUTUAL INTROS OR ENDINGS. starring J - Michael Raffetto, D - Barton Yarborough, R - Walter Paterson (not Jack - Les Tremayne, Doc Long-Tony Clay), that would be a great find and complete this series.
