"This is, without a doubt, the best OTR app available in the store. To say the selection is huge does not adequately describe the sheer number of shows and episodes available." ifitsfreeitsforme
"I've been a fan of OTR for nearly 40 years and I am astonished by the sheer multitude of shows available. I am also surprised at the great overall sound quality of the programs. I went ahead and signed up for the monthly subscription which is only $1.99/mo. What a bargain!" Dachshund Heaven
"This is a Great App! The developer answered me right away when I had a problem. It takes hard work to invent an app for Apple customers. It is especially good to know that a nice person was behind the development; and was there to help me. Enjoy" zzzzzzzxxx
"This is absolutely the best app ever. Apple needs to get on the ball and promote this. I can't get enough. Dropped my satellite radio because vintage radio shows were all I listened too." tatorchip33
"I have had this for a long time and just love it. I can listen to an old time radio show anytime, anywhere. Thousands of choices in all genres. I am currently listening to Phillip Marlowe. I can't say enough good things about this app. Just wonderful!!!" PuffyClementine
"Seemingly endless quality shows. Many are rare but very worthy. My favorite ATM is the mystery "Box 13" starring Alan Ladd. Listen to shows to go to sleep. So many different ones. It's amazing." Jen303
Unlimited playlists, allow you to arrange the episode order as desired and a sleep timer is perfect for those night time tales.

Ratings and Reviews
Great App for listening to old-time radio shows!
I love this app! I've listened to all of Bob Hope's old radio shows and look forward to many other shows to listen to. I especially enjoy listening to these old shows while I'm in the car. I have purchased an iPhone 7Plus and followed the usual protocol to move from an older phone (iPhone5) to a new one, backing up the old phone and then restoring the new phone from the backup. However Vintage Radio wasn't working on my new iPhone7 Plus so I was frustrated. A simple e-mail to Orion got me the solution -- Michael told me to delete the old app and redownload it. Then I restored my purchases (the subscription) and everything is working as it should be. I've tried other old-time radio apps but this one is the best by far -- it's got the biggest variety and the shows are all clear and easy to listen to. Great app and great support -- what's not to love? Anybody interested in old-time radio shows should download this app and get one of the subscriptions so that you can enjoy these great shows (many aired live with little rehearsal and it's great fun to listen to the ad-libbing to cover their mistakes!)
The best of them all
I’ve downloaded multiple OTR apps over the last few years but this is the one that I come back to, time and time again. I’ve had to delete it on occasion to clear up space, but, without fail, I go and download it again shortly thereafter. I’ve heard every episode of most of the Crime & Detective stories and have been branching out. I appreciate that there is no censorship of the original ads (such as when shows are sponsored by cigarette companies) as I have encountered this on other apps and feel it detracts from the show as a whole. Thank you so much for making something so amazing available to us in a day and age where sitting and just listening to something on the radio is so uncommon. I didn’t grow up in the era when these shows originally were broadcast, but this makes me feel like I could have for a little while.
The only app for classic radio plays
There is nothing written today as good as the old classic radio plays of the 30s, 40s and 50s. I researched classic radio apps after tiring of having to listen to whatever classic radio show was being played at any one time on Sirius Radio. The free version of this app is really amazing and has enough choices to satisfy most people, but I have up-graded to their premium to get full access to every broadcast that I can imagine wanting to hear. I have listened to all 432 episodes of Gunsmoke for instance. I also love The Shadow, Suspense and many others. This app has them all. I use this app every day without fail.
One word of caution: all classic radio broadcasts have lower recording quality than digital broadcasts. Classic Radio junkies like me get used to it, and it becomes part of the ambience.
