Old Time Radio Resources

Post by Space Cadet on 7/24/2016, 4:14 pm

I thought we had an OTR Resources page, but couldn't find it when I searched for it. So, now we have one.

Stars of the Radio PDF

Post by Space Cadet on 7/24/2016, 4:19 pm

The reason I was looking for an OTR Resouces page, was because I wanted to share this book from 1930, called Stars of the Radio. It's in pdf format and has about 250 pictures and brief bio's of radio performers from the era.

Download from the Mediafire link below.

Tons of Books on Radio and TV History and More

Post by Space Cadet on 1/30/2017, 2:10 pm

This may be extremely helpful for some doing research. This site has hundreds of online books covering radio and TV history. As well as quite a few on hardware. Their header states "Five million pages of AM FM & TV Broadcasting history online." Most of the books are in PDF format, and you should be able to save them on your own computer.

I posted this earlier but found the advertised price was for current owners of their software. Now they are offering the plug-in pack to the general public for $99. It doesn't have all the features of the advanced version but they do offer the basic features which work really good. I tried the plug-ins with Audacity and they all work and much better than the similar features packaged in Audacity. The 4 plug-ins are De-click, Dialogue De-noise, De-hum, and De-clip. The stand alone packages are also available with the basic RX5 discounted at $299 and the advanced version at $799. All come with a try before you buy offer.

One of my favorite Saturday morning shows is Car Talk. NPR is making these available for free. You can listen to the podcast or download to listen at your leasure. Over 100 of the shows are available.

Just finished converting my vinyl to digital using an old BIC turntable, a little Pyle PP444 preamp, and an old IBM Thinkpad laptop maxed out with 1 Gb of ram and running Windows XP. The only problem I had was a small clicking hum that I could not isolate so using the Thinkpad's USB 1.0 port, I ported lossless wave files over to a newer laptop for a little Izotope hum removal and Razorlame 320kb mp3 conversion. Sound to my ears is as good as the album and much easier to store and use. A mini thumb drive has all my converted tunes instantly available in the car/truck, or at home plugged in to the stereo or beamed from the laptop using bluetooth.
