The problem I have with many of the MP3's is audio quality.   The compression is so high that the audio becomes muffled to the point where it cannot be deciphered.   I have an MP3 collection of The Goon Show and another of the Shadow that is terrible!   The people who are creating MP3's should be taking care and compressing at a much higher bit rate in order to give the finest quality. Instead, they tend to compress at a low bit ratio to save space. It is a diservice to present programs like this.    I was anxious to introduce my son to the Shadow, but gave up after he kept asking "what did they say"?

sorry, I should have said "the compression bit rate is so low" in the first sentence.

New series added-- HANK WILLIAMS!

This collection includes two of Hank's Grand Ole Opry appearances as well as his radio show, Health and Happiness, with The Cowboy Drifters and several shows he did for Mother's Best Flour. Thirteen episodes total.

One of the Opry episodes is there as a free download. Sound quality-- heck, it's HANK!

Also, some have mentioned the difficulties with download software-- the site says this:

PLEASE BE KIND: To avoid overloading the server bandwidth, please be courteous to other listeners and limit downloads to the only shows you will listen to today.

Although the server is now running, recently over-active downloaders using downloading manager sofware crashed the service preventing everyone from being able to listen to these shows.

By limiting your downloads to 20 episodes per day and disabling any download manager sofware, you will insure the free downloads will continue to be available for everybody listening pleasure! Thanks for visiting OTRCAT.com!

Free download up for the week:

Leadbelly's appearance on Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street


Musical Satire; a swing show that lampooned the classics (1940-52). "Good evening, lovers of fine music. Welcome to the no-doubt world-famous Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street, and another concert dedicated to the perpetuation of the three B's - barrelhouse, boogie-woogie, and the blues."

Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street was molded in the essence that it would be verbally satirical, but when the music started, it produced one of the best swing music shows on the air. To add more humor to the show, the announcer was Milton Cross, the long-lasting announcer to the sallow-faced Metropolitan Opera broadcasts. Milton would pile on long-haired grandeur upon the commonest distributor of rhythm and blues.

The show served as the launching pad for the venerable Dinah Shore. Milton Cross once said that "she starts a fire by rubbing two notes together," which explains the nickname "the one-woman torchlight parade." With star-studded power like this, Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street guarantees a swingin' good time from start to finish.
