The Old Time Radio Streamer is a very simple a straightforward way to listen to OTR streams. With a simple user interface and a simple featureset you should be able to start listening and enjoying fine Old Time Radio content very quickly. We have added a simple fade-out timer as well so you can listen before bed and not worry about turning it off. There are alot of other apps that do similar things, however none as simple and straightforward and even better, ad free.

Great selection, instant connections

I had a previous 5 * review but changed it to 1* when the app went off the reservation after the iOS 12 update, when it refused to connect to servers. I can’t edit my old review to get it back up to 5* - so I’m trying to make up for that by sending the “all clear.”

The gist of my other review is that the app has a few flaws, and my wish list would be to add things like buffering, but the value added is 100x the detractions.

Aside from the attributes in my title, there are no ad servers to slow it down, interrupt play, etc. When I want OTR and I want it NOW(!) I always default to this app. There is ALWAYS a genre or an episode available instantly. Unlike a popular live radio app I use, I am literally listening in less than half the time and it’s easy to interact with in the car because basically the only thing there is to click on are the numerous presets. Apologies to the developer for my downgrading the app in my old post, and many thanks for fixing this!

Real Old Time Radio

Just close your eyes, let the sounds come in, you are now capturing the moments that entertained families every night for many years ...... until the boob tube came along..... But the radio shows of those "days" still retain their character and charm, absent, that is, the PC sensibility (all too often, insensibility) of today's world (I'm still struggle with my own thoughts about the appalling lack of sensitivity, much less understanding, that still pervades this world.). Turn on your cultural relativity filters, relax, and enjoy!

This app is one of the very best in carrying you back to an extraordinary era of entertainment. You will also experience a different slant on advertising when you catch an episode that still has its commercials intact.

Wonderful relaxing

Really enjoy being able to just shut my eyes and listen to a radio play from yesteryear. Takes some imagination. Only one time did I sign on and the menu of station offerings not match what was being broadcast. Every other time, it was perfect. The menu is a great asset in finding exactly what you want to listen to (Boston Blackie, Sherlock Holmes, or big band music, etc--and I'm talking about a lot of stations). If I could only have one app, this would be it.
