    Please forgive my ignorance, but is there a way to download some of these true gems for ipod listening on the road? Sure could make i5 go more pleasantly.

      You should be able to right click on the Web player and get a dialogue box asking if you want to save the audio. It’s as simple as that. Or you can go to the Archive.org page and download them there.

        You can search for many, many OTR programs at Archive.org. They may be hard to find, due to poor organization, but they are there. Enough radio shows have survived that it’s possible to go day by day through 1944 and find at least one show and sometimes several.
