Plus various old time radio transcription discs, reels and program purchases I make throughout the year for us.
For instance, I just purchased a complete high quality set of Theater Guild / U.S. Steel Hour for $65.00 for our library. A purchase for a high quality set of The Life Of Riley is pending!

|Date||2022 Program Acquisitions||# Episodes||Costs|
This year I'm tracking all our high quality program acquisitions. I buy lossless wav or flac files from various sources to upgrade our OTR library for the best sound available. Yes many, many shows are available for free as poorly transferred mp3's from the past, but I avoid those whenever possible. I also look for rare and uncirculated programs on transcription discs and reels. I transfer, clean and restore the audio myself.
There is a time lag between when I purchase a program and when it finally shows up in the scheduler. I screen each and every show which takes time.
