Some changes on the blog

January 10th, 2011

I hope everyone had a safe holiday break.  We're back with new shows for 2011.

You'll notice some changes on the blog in the next few months.  With family and work commitments, and some other projects I'm concentrating on, I'm probably going to cut down on the number of shows I post each week and the schedule may get a big irregular at times.  In some cases, rather than running a series of discs over a few weeks, I might post the series at once to archive.org and put a link here to the collection there.

I'm seeing is that there are less transcription discs out there for sale.  I'm not sure if this is one of those "lulls", or if people are selling them in other ways than ebay or similar outlets.  What I've tried to do each week is present discs in a series, with a post of a show in better sound that might be in circulation, and something that's previously uncirculated or "lost".  I'm just picking up on less network and major syndicated series that are uncirculated for the collection, so you'll start seeing some more esoteric shows pop up from local stations and some ephemera and fewer of the major drama and comedy shows from the networks.  I'm also getting a bit more picky about what I pick up for the collection, since I've got over 500 discs and I am running out of space to store them properly.

So, the otr blog isn't going away - just going through a few changes over the next few months.
