One of our members asked me to post some of my favorite series of shows.

Here they are. With number one being my most favorite. Two my second favorite and so on.


1. CBS Radio Mystery Theater

2. Sherlock Holmes (Rathbone / Bruce)

3. Adventures Of Frank Merriwell

4. Escape

5. Father Knows Best

6. Barry Craig Confidential Investigator

7. Unexpected

8. 2000-Plus

9. X Minux One

10. Suspense

11. Rocky Jordan

12. Mysterious-Traveler

13. Lights-Out

14. Inner-Sanctum

15. Box 13

16. Ellery Queen

17. Mystery Is My Hobby

18. Yours Truly Johnny Dollar

19. Nick Carter

20. Chase

It's hard to put them in order. Sometimes I'm in the mood for a comedy, sometimes a mystery or maybe horror. They're all good though.

Let's have more people post their favorites and see what we come up with.

Brad

Ok. Great idea, Brad, even though this is a little hard. I have listened to a lot more comedy than mystery, but I have learned that I do like the mystery shows, so here is my try at this:

1. Our Miss Brooks

2. Mysterious Traveler

3. Father Knows Best

4. Suspense

5. Ozzie and Harriet

6. Jack Benny

7. Calling All Cars

8. CBS Radio Mystery Theatre

9. Aldridge Family

10. Family Doctor

11. Smiths of Hollywood

12. Fibber McGee and Molly

13. Burns and Allen

14. The Great Gildersleeve

15. Phil Harris/Alice Faye show

16. Sherlock Holmes (Rathbone and Bruce)

17. My Friend Irma

18. Spike Jones

19. Command Performance

20. It's a Crime, Mr. Collins

That was hard and I'm not certain I got it right, but there are lots of great shows. Very Happy

What shows do you want added to the members directory. I'm adding shows all the time but just tell me what's missing that you want added and I'll try to put them up right away. If I don't have them, I'll do my best to find them or order them from a catalog. I want this to be a one-stop place for all of you to listen to your favorite shows.

Brad,
You must work really hard on uploading. You have a really nice selection of shows. Thanks for all your hard work. I don't want to be the only one ever asking for shows, but I happen to believe you really do mean it when you say you would like to get the shows people want to listen to. Do you happen to have the Johnson Family? I have seen that on OTRCAT and it sounds really interesting.
I hope others will also make their requests known.
Thanks, Brad.

Hi Brad

Thanks for all the hard work you do to keep this Great OTR Site going, Your otr music show collections are very impressive. There is another show which is called JUBILEE.
Jubilee was another in a series of "For The Troops" broadcasts that was aired for military personnel, salut but never broadcast at home. It contained a live-studio audience, and jazz performances of Count Basie, Duke Ellingyton, Max Roach and many others.some of the guests included Jack Benny and Rochester Anderson
cheers There are some really great vintage jazz performances on these shows.

Thanks Kevin Wink
