There are lots of places that sell OTR on CD. This is fine if you don’t have the bandwidth to download, or don’t want to take the time. Since the OTR that all of these vendors sell is public domain*, don’t pay more than a small reproduction fee if you buy. Also, be aware that the quality of the audio varies and some may be very poor. It can be a crap-shoot, even with different shows from the same vendor.
* There are a few OTR series that are still copyrighted. One example is CBS Radio Mystery Theater.
I don’t know about the particular vendor mentioned, but also be aware that the vast majority of the OTR out there is in MP3 format. If a vendor is selling standard audio CD’s and not MP3’s, then he probably converted the MP3 to WAV to make the CD, which means the audio quality suffers. This also means that you are getting fewer CDs for the money. There are a very few vendors who sell OTR that has come straight from an original tape or transcription disk and not from an MP3 or a multi-generational tape copy, but these pristine original copies usually sell for lots of money.
If you would rather download OTR for free, there are many online choices. One good selection can be found at the Internet Archive: http://www.archive.org/details/oldtimeradio. Some of the better OTR sets at the Internet Archive are the ones from OTRR (Old Time Radio Researchers). The OTRR sets are usually of better quality and are as complete as humanly possible. If an OTRR set isn’t available, some of the other posted sets are also good.
