Re: Question

Scott Galley
 

Yes, these were downloaded many years ago, and have not been quality checked. I can say that I listened to:

LOOK WHAT WE FOUND! - A LIGHTHOUSE KEEPER
OLD TALES AND NEW - THE BOY THAT WAS CARRIED AWAY BY A BEAR
OLD TALES AND NEW - THE EMPEROR’S NEW CLOTHES
OLD TALES AND NEW - THE HORSE WHO LOVED MUSIC
OLD TALES AND NEW - THE THREE ELEPHANTS
LOOK WHAT WE FOUND! - TRAINS, TRAINS AND MORE TRAINS
OLD TALES AND NEW - A YAK AT THE COUNTY FAIR
OLD TALES AND NEW - WHITNEY, THE NEIGHBOURLY WHALE
OLD TALES AND NEW - SLEEPING BEAUTY

Because they are all in Title Case, an old method that I had 15+ years ago of indicating whether I had listened to it or not. And to that end, I have not listened to them since, although I remember really enjoying them. I downloaded them from a site that was also offering "Hello, Sucker" (another WONDERFUL local show) and "Case Dismissed". I think that they had all been recently discovered in some lot of transcription recordings that were going to be thrown away, or some such thing. Also, if I remember correctly, Harry Bartell was a contributor to the site, in that, you could contact him via email. I was not as knowledgeable as I am today about radio, otherwise my wife and I would have had dozens of questions to ask him, along with singing his praises. An opportunity missed.

I listened to the intro to Pierre the remarkable prairie dog and did not hear them use the phrase tales old & new so did not include it as my retitling process.

Re: Jungle Jim

Scott Mahan
 

Ryan:

 

Well you won’t find much. Lots of stuff about Jungle Jim Liberman and Jungle Pam Hardy though. I saw them and  Don Garlits and Shirley Muldowney and Don Prudhomme and the like at Green Valley Raceway when I was in high school but life happens and I had totally forgotten about them until I did my first Jungle Jim Google search. J No one could start a race quite like Jungle Pam.

 

That’s true. No reason not to start from the beginning. If, oh, say, half a dozen people sign up to listen then I’d say we launch.

And, really, although some of them are a bigger commitment, it would be a better experience for listeners if folk would sign up for whole story arcs.

This is a serial. It’s a lot more engaging to hear an arc from beginning to end. Lots of episodes are “cliffhangers”.

Do you really want to stop after #10 and not know whether Rev. Chalmers gets killed or not? (And you don’t know. Lots of dying in Jungle Jim.)

Not counting Ted’s stuff, and one arc that overlaps it, below is what we’ve got to work with.

Would you, perhaps, like to sign up for “The Bat Woman”?

I agree with Scott's sentiment, that anything from Ted's buying group (even if purchased separately) should probably wait a while just to avoid raising eyebrows. It may take that long to get such a big set out any way. 

 

Scott, I'd be happy to take ten episodes; it's not a series I've listened to much. I'll also start poking around for ads and articles and such.

Which, you might recall when this was being discussed in May, I explained that the numbers on the transcription discs after 1942 aren’t episode numbers at all. Which is why the dates and episode numbers on the files in circulation are so messed up and needed fixing in the first place. And why there are so many misnamed duplicate files.

 

I would be happy to share but, as I recall, the conversation left off without a decision about how much that I have from Ted Davenport's OTR Buyer’s Group that should be included. I got these as a member of that group without a promise not to share but as a member of the OTRR Purchasing Group, which does have such an agreement, it seems like I ought to abide by that. I just wanted someone to tell me what to do.

 

These are 15 minute episodes and there are 450-ish depending on the above. So we’d need about 45 volunteers to verify 10 episode blocks. I’d be happy to coordinate that.

Those would be fantastic to get. I homeschooled my children in what they
called the Dark ages because I could not teach some thing. But the
biggest thing we didn't have computers in those days. Nor did we have the
internet. Of course they had computers then but I wasn't about to pay for
something that would take money from our Grocery Budget for something I
didn't even know anything about.

I have 7 of the Minnesota School of the Air, I can share via Dropbox.

Also I have a fairly large collection of shows that others might not have.
Most of it is from ottrlibrary but others are from behind paywalls.

If anyone would like to have access to my library I can grant access to it
when I am back in cell phone range.
