Happy birthday Jack Benny!
He was born 122 years ago but is still 39. Thanks for this great app to remember radio as it was.

Reliable player, no strings attached
I have thousands of OTR shows on mp3 format. I had nothing for my modest android tablet until this player. It installed flawlessly and plays reliably. The controls are easy and the random play is a great feature. Well designed. Kudos to the developer. Thanks. 😊
Bought the Paid Version
I now have a great collection of shows thanks to you guys.. Big Dragnet Fan...
I suggest Life With Luigi starring J. Carroll Nash. Its patriotism is cringeworthy at times, and it can get a bit repetitive, but otherwise it's a good time.
So grateful to get for free
I listen to this app every night as I fall asleep. It's superb. The drama. The intrigue!! It's just a MUST HAVE app. I would give it 5 stars but sometimes and I do mean sometimes....the recordings have random music in the background like it was recorded by mistake....and this can be a little annoying and off-putting but a few episode have this so it's not too distracting. Thank you for the freeness. ☺
I love listening to the old radio shows and I couldn't find a good way to listen to them on my phone before I found this app . There were no decent podcasts that had such the great range of shows that this app offers and I didn't want to get Sirius Satellite Radio just to get the radio classics. When searching for a way to listen to the shows then I stumbled upon this app and I'm glad I found it.
I use this app on my phone along with a Chromecast to play period shows on my 1939 RCA-Victor K106 tube radio. It has two RCA inputs for TV and phono, 3.5mm to RCA adapter is all I needed.
Stops at the beginning
It stops and restarts continually at the beginning of every episode around the 20 to 30 second mark. Even when I have full 4g and the episode is quickly downloading. If I skip the first minute or so it plays fine.
Favorite OTR app
Great for OTR detective fans! :) I sometimes have trouble with the playback stopping randomly at the beginning of episodes. I haven't had that problem in the past month-ish, so I'm hoping that problem is behind us.
Still skips episodes but...
I Love it even though it has glitches at times .I still have to have it every night when in bed trying to sleep :)
All the sudden will not play. I tried uninstalling and then reinstalling, without success. Please help
Only 2 problems
1.) After about 2 or 3 hours of being on, it stops playing. The only way to get it to start playing again is to close out the app completely and re open the app. Yes I have it on continuous play. 2.) It skips some episodes on its on after it stays playing for approximately 2 minutes. It's more annoyance than inconvenience.
Real old time radio
Entertainment from another generation but still very entertaining with an open mind & good imignation & insight to that generation one could have quite a bit of fun with this app. Well worth the download. A O.K. Joe A O.K.!!! Rodger that!
Really nice to be able to listen or watch old radio without all the filthy language or perverted comments. Needgod com.
Even my kids have this on their phones. We all go to sleep with a story. I love this app.

I have to replay the current episode around the 23rd second mark after it just quits. Happens on all my android devices. Great selection nonetheless.
Best for OTR users
Now I'm able to listen to all my favourites on android. I love this app so much because there is wider selection, this mean I'm now able to discover more shows and come to love them.
Great selection no sleep timer
If this app has a sleep timer it would get a 5. I use these shows to listen to as I fall asleep. Also it over rides my alarm volume so the alarm volume ends up being low level like my shows I choose. Otherwise great design easy user interface and awesome customization. Please devs add a sleep timer.

It's how I get my housework done!
Free radio classics that gets your mind off of your work. Long boring drives aren't as boring now too! My kids love them!
Absolutely love it!
Great app here, I love it so much, it has a good collection and is easy to navigate. It represents a great and mostly gone era and brings a lot of great shows to my phone.
I love this app !
Very enjoyable and comforting I really can't stop listening to it it's much better than sitting in front of the t.v. thanks so much for the programs I'm sure you will add more in time.
One of my favorite apps.
A great variety of classic radio shows. For the most part the audio is great. The audio quality for a few shows can be a little difficult to understand clearly, but this is probably due to the age of these recordings.
Awesome (10 stars if possible)
I love Abbott and Costello this is the jackpot. Orson Wells and War of The Worlds? Right here. Too bad the skin wasn't an old 40's radio.
I am a second generation old time radio buff. Absolutely love the plots, dramatizations, and stories that the golden age of radio produced. Nothing like using your imagination to fill in the details. They don't write stories like they used to. The only thing i ran into was the audio stops after selecting a show. I have to re-hit play for it to play. I have one request to the developer...please add some of the older shows! It pays to be ignorant, red skelton!!! Thank you so much!!
Wishes for more shows, But its wonderful and saves my shows for later listen. And crashes when open another app. Live feeds would be a nice touch.
