    OTR (Old Time Radio) is a genre of listening entertainment that has become very popular since the advent of streaming audio over the internet. Before the internet, you were lucky to find any still broadcast over the air for nostalgia purposes. These are old recordings of radio drama shows like Johnny Dollar, Your FBI, Texas Rangers, general music of the era like the Big Bands, adventure serials like the Lone Ranger, Mysterious Island etc. I listen often to OTR (old time radio) while doing certain menial tasks at work that don't require concentration- like those coworkers that listen to their...

At the time this was the most expensive radio drama produced by a major network. http://fbicommi.libsyn.com/index.php?post_id=325682

    Shenanigans (Politico.Com) ^ | 6/17/09 | Anne Schroeder
    If you want to score a meeting with Rep. Jim McDermott (D-Wash.), know this: His scheduler/office manager, Elizabeth Becton, is to be addressed by her full name — not Liz or any other variant. An executive assistant at McBee Strategic recently learned this the hard way. A few weeks ago, the assistant e-mailed Becton seeking a meeting with McDermott and a client, JPMorgan Chase. Days later, the assistant checked back in and unfortunately began the e-mail with “Hi Liz.” Becton curtly replied, “Who is Liz?” When the assistant wrote back with an apology, Becton turned up the heat. “I do...
