Would looking at the bit rate not tell you quite a lot about the overall quality.   The better files are also indicated by larger size in some cases.

I'd like to get a volunteer or two to compare two versions of a Duffy's episode for our upcoming release to help determine which is better to include.

Danny Kaye

Ryan Ellett
 

A little while back we received a new episode of the Danny Kaye Show that had not been available when we put our set together last year. It is the March 15, 1946 broadcast with guest Edward Everette Horton. I don't recall where we got it. Did someone in this group discover it? I'd like to credit that person as we update the set.

Many of you remember Doug Hopkinson, an active member during the early years of this group. He is still busy in the hobby, just not with OTRR. One of his pet series the last 12 years or so has been Cecil and Sally. He practically single-handedly brought this program back into circulation among hobbyists. He has the opportunity to purchase more than 600 discs of the series at a total price of $5,000. This is out of his budget so he has created a Kickstarter to attempt to fund it. It's a bit pricey but please take a look. Doug's recording skills are superior and he's been working with transcriptions for years. Cecil and Sally has become one of my favorite series! The link to his Kickstarter.

Martin Grams Lone Ranger

Ryan Ellett
 

I don't recall if this was posted earlier, but Martin Grams' newest book is expected to release mid-June. It is The Lone Ranger: The Early Years, 1933 - 1937. If you're a Lone Ranger fan, it's a no-brainer. Initially I was disappointed when it was announced because I wanted a history of the entire show and this only covers the first years. However, Martin noted in a Facebook message that there are an additional three volumes planned (years out). If you order before it comes in from the printer he is not charging shipping. Cost is $34.95 for a 800-page volume (the majority I expect to be a detailed episode guide that is famous for). If you're interested, order here.

I'm looking for this show, which was syndicated across Metropolitan Broadcasting.

 

It looks like it was also released on LP but that doesn't help me much :(

 

Anyone know of a source?

So, per Larry’s original post, where are these 16 episodes? I only see one Whistler episode at https://archive.org/details/joe-hehn

Only the ones marked "NEW VERSION" were in circulation as network or AFRS
The other 6 had not been in circulation for decades

All of the other USAFE recordings https://archive.org/details/whistlerUSAFEairchecks that were in circulation before are upgrades in sound quality, some of them significantly so

I was going to u[load the TV Men Into Space (I wanted the radio non-fiction one) since it appeared there was interest on it, but someone beat me.

So here's some extras.

https://ilovecomixarchive.box.com/s/oubrt6nxd44ddylm49fr2g1oho1mh4ag

I'm missing the novelization (except for the cover), but there's the cover of Life 1959-09-07 (the inside article was about the TV season and not the show); a Lucky Strike ad, a drawing from Starlog 011 (1978-01) p05; the comic book; and several photos of the Lunchbox /thermos.

The comic is written by Gaylord Du Bois (who, among many many other things, gave is the comic book version of SPACE FAMILY ROBINSON) and drawn by Murphy Anderson (who had a couple of runs on BUCK ROGERS)

Re: The Whistler

Larry Maupin
 

Thank you for the clarification Joe.  According to the post to which I am now replying, the 9 episodes of The Whistler that you mention have all already been in circulation either in "an AFRS" or "a network" version.  

I think that means that they fall into a different category than the episodes of Road of Life, Ethel and Albert and Big Story that you told me are "new" (that word again!).  I still believe that to be true, but it may be there are not "5 or 6" episodes of The Whistler that are "new" in the same sense as the others.

As the team works its way through the remaining tapes, I hope you and other volunteers will keep this group updated on all "new" episodes that are being uploaded to the collection on the Internet Archive if that is not too much trouble.  Nothing is more exciting, I think, than the discovery that a previously unknown episode of almost any OTR series has become available to listen to.  Well, maybe a wild pitch with the bases loaded and the score tied in the bottom of the 9th when you're a fan of the home team.

Larry

The sentence
""NEW VERSION" means that an AFRS or a network version has been in circulation."
is correct
That means that this is the first time a USAFE copy has appeared. It may very well be the case that one of those AFRS or network copies sounds better. But for those looking to be "completists" and identify all existing versions, getting a USAFE copy is something that helps satisfy their goal
