OTR Magz Index Revised

Saturday, October 2nd, 2010

The Old Time Radio Magazine Index has been revised to include the most recent addition to the OTR Radio Magazine Archives.

This index is maintained by Terry C. and currently has over 390 pages. If you are interested in a certain radio program, or star, just look them up in the index, and it will show you all the references in the Archives. You can go directly to the magazines referenced and not have to spend a lot of time randomly searching.

This is an excellent reference work.
