Try the beta site (https://www.otrr.org/OTRRLibrary/otrrlibrary.html) and let me know what you think.
You can view episodes in a 'Table' (new way - click the file to listen to it) or as a list (old way - click to listen, right-click to download).
Bonus #1: You can search by Episode title.
Bonus #2: The newly added Purchasing Group files (19,100 total) are available as well.

John Tierney and Paul Kornman are taking care of the problem; we became aware of it Friday night or yesterday. It has to do, as John explained it, with some legacy issues with the site left over from Jim's time. John is having to clean out some content and that is taking quite a while. On Facebook Paul linked to the updated library site that is currently in beta; it is entirely usable but looks very different: OTRR Library

Re: New Book on Caroline Ellis

Thank you, Scott! I like to throw out the library option because I know some just don't have the extra money for this kind of purchase. It also supports Bear Manor, and owner Ben Ohmart is a huge fan of old time radio. I know he doesn't make much off the radio books compared to the other topics he publishes about but he does it for a love of the hobby.

Just got a notice from Ben Ohmart at Bear Manor that my latest book from his press is now available for purchase. Some of you may remember my initial write-up on Caroline Ellis in SPERDVAC's Radiogram many years ago. Much more info came to light since then and resulted in this book. It includes a lot of behind-the scenes details about bringing a brand new show to the air on an NBC regional chain and some great never-before-seen photographs as well. Her only series that is in circulation is The Travels of Mary Ward, which is available on our library. You can always request your local library get a copy!

Paul Dubov also played Regan a few times; if anyone wants to write a bio of Dubov, we would include it.

This set still needs a short intro of the series if anyone is interested.

For the Jeff Regan set we will need a short bio for Frank Graham (who took over the role after Webb left) and a general introduction to the series. Anyone interested in either of these jobs?

The word “ bankruptcy” is prominent in this article, but it appears the publishers are using the idea of it as a club.
