Hi all,
I have an internet radio, and have 3 stations that play old time radio.

Old Valve Radio OTR
Alltime Oldies Radio Theater Channel
20th Century Radio OTR

Is anyone aware of other Old time radio broadcast on the internet?

Thank, Mikek
PS.
Technically it's radio, I run my Internet Radio into a transmitter,
then I can listen anywhere in the house or yard. :-)

Thanks, I'll program WGVU into my Internet radio.
I was raised just down the road (US 131) in Kalamazoo until I was about 24 yrs old,
then I lived in/around E. Lansing for 15 yrs. Now I'm in Panama City Fl. My sister still
lives in Kalamazoo, says it was a rough winter.

Your internet radio should be able to play Am 1710 Antioch - http://www.radio.macinmind.com
or something like that.

Streaming OTR 24 hours a day; one of my favorites

For my 1920s radios, I stream Radio Dismuke (http://radiodismuke.com/) into my SSTran. I have iTunes playlists on my Mac for '30s and '40s big band/swing that most of the other radios get.

There's only one station that plays old music in my area, KAHI 950 in Auburn, CA, but that's only 6 hours a day on weekends when there's no a sporting event going on. It's just not enough.

If you don't have one don't get one, I got one and lost interest in building antennas,
antenna phasing units, radio circuits. Everthing is there, no fading, no static.
It's just to good.

If your internet radio is powered by Reciva just go to their web site and do a search for OTR. Lots of stations to choose from. For music from the 50's, 60's and 70's give "Rewound Radio" a listen. "Martini In the Morning" is a good choice for "lounge" music. Jazz at 91.1 (Canadian) has some very good sub channels. "Ladies and Crooners" from France is a fine choice. My radio's are also linked to my Pandora account

I really enjoy internet radio. I used to stream from my laptop, but that was a less then ideal choice. I now have four internet radios with one streaming 24/7 through my SStran and the other 3 connected to stereo systems. Glad to know another fan frequents this forum.

You don't need a special internet radio.
Just go to the stations web site and do live streaming with your computer.

A must have for me is WNAR AM 1610 This is the most realistic station out there. Scheduled programming, commercials and news on the hour. I stream this 24/7 to my sets. (I cant get to sleep without Dragnet at 10 every week night)

WECS has OTR 6pm to midnight on Saturdays. The show is called Chatterbox and is hosted live and has a web cam. Occasionally the show is offline and sometimes the web cam isn't available.

I just found an internet station that streams Gunsmoke 24/7. Search Reciva for OTR Gunsmoke and add it to your channels. In my opinion Gunsmoke was the best radio show produced. Nice to have the option to stream it anytime I'm in the mood.

In Toronto, AM740 has an hour of OTR from Monday to Thursday inclusive at 10pm. The first half hour is drama and the second half of the hour is comedy. I can receive it without too much problem most nights, and I'm pretty sure that those living in the USA northeast should be able to receive it also.

Yup,I listen to it every night here in NH,and they've extended the schedule to now include Friday night.

CHML in Hamilton,Ontario also airs OTR every night from 10pm to 1am.Fall asleep to it every night.

I'm a big fan of 740 Toronto. I like the BBSN= Big Band Sunday Night. After dark can DX fairly well in Toledo, Ohio.

Will check out their OTR times!

I'm a WNAR listener too via the net. I live about 10miles from their LP TX site so I can't hear it on air in less I'm out and about. The thing I like about them is they have a fixed sked and the shows are typically played in order be date. This makes it easy to follow the story line in the shows.

What station would this be? My AM 600khz and FM 89.9mhz stations do not play anything even close to what you describe...but then I am sure we are not close together.
