Hi David. Not all episodes can not be downloaded from our site but you could try www.archive.org and search for OTR. John

Hi. Over the last few weeks I can only listen to a programme whilst I have the app on my iPad open. If I open another app this one stops working. I’m not sure if it the app or mt iPad that is the problem.

I will ask the techie bods for their opinion. maybe you can download the TuneIn radio app for your iPad and try that as a temporary measure.

Hello! First of all a big thanks for re-airing all these old BBC comedy gems But the lastest version of the app for iOS not only updated channels but also changed so the app does not work in the background. It only works when it is open and lit on the screen. In the previous version it was ok to tune in to a show and then put it away and the audio still came out. Perhaps it is a matter of recompiling with a "run in background"-flag set? Cheers /Micke

Hi Micke. We are looking into this at the moment. maybe you can download the Tunein Radio or Radionomy app for now and see if that makes a difference!

Hi. Just been listening to British Comedy 1 on 1st August, 2017 at approx 00.30!GMT when you broadcasted an old advert for a TVs programme called Jim lol fix it, a BBC children's programme from the 70s. I am sure it was a mistake on your part as all other media have stopped playing or acknowledging any programme hosted by this country's most prolific paedophile, Jimmy Saville. Please remove this advert from your advert breaks as it is very upsetting for the vast majority if the UK population

Hi Henry Thank you for letting me know. I had previously removed this ad together with a public information advert from Rolf Harris together with some music tracks. We have been upgrading servers, so probably the reason it has reappeared. I will deal with it. Regards John

Hi John,have anyone else mentioned that since the move to new servers,some of the load times for channels have got very long,almost a minute quite often ! Comedy two I presume is on "old" server,as its load times are still just a few seconds,while com one is now consistently 45+ seconds.. Tim

Hi Tim Had no complaints regarding load speed. When you say it takes a long time to load, do you mean the players on the website? In reality the server playing out the channels just feed the streaming server which you log onto to listen. Nothing has really changed in that respect. I will take a look. Thanks for letting me know. John

Hello -- I am trying to find out about a programme you played in the 17:00 hour (NZST) on the 30th July, called something like The Radio Detective, Philip Marlowe. It was more of a literary critique of Raymond Chandler's Marlowe, and I'd love to be able to find it again, as I missed the first half of the programme.

Last night I interrupted telly with my wife to jump into bed with Lemmy, Doc, and Jet. Come to find they've been replaced in their former slot and scattered over the galaxy. Very sad.

Hi Peter, yes the schedules have been revamped. Sorry that Space Patrol has moved from the time slot you are accustomed. It has been years since I updated the schedules. The channel has been moved to a new server and at the same time the schedule was refreshed. I will see what we can do. John

We have just stopped and re-started three channels and completed adding a new UPS unit (uninterrupted power supply) to the new server. This should ensure stability and improved up-time moving forward. John

We are currently migrating 5 channels across to a brand new server. This should finally solve the intermittent problems we have been having with a couple of channels. The American Comedy Channel and British Comedy Channel have already been transferred. PLEASE NOTE: The American Comedy Channel programming schedule has changed. The British Comedy Channels schedule remains unchanged. The Crime & Suspense, OTR Gold and Science Fiction & Supernatural Channels will be transferred by Monday the 17th of July. Thank you for your understanding.

HI! I really enjoy all of the channels, especially the British comedy and the crime and suspense channels. I noticed the audio on the 1940s Radio channel is garbled. The show title and episode title appear OK above the Listen Now button for 1940s Radio, but the audio is completely garbled. Thought I'd let you know if you're not aware. Thanks again for making the old radio shows available.

Hi Peter, We have fixed that problem for the time being and moving forward we are investing in a state of the art new server for the channels. The issue sometimes is that the monitoring system we have does not indicate any errors as the stream is up, but as you say garbled. Recently there was a power failure at the host location and I was unable to access the machine via remote desktop. In the near future I hope to provide a more reliable service. John

Hi Stan, it was the extended version of the song (pnly joking) πŸ™‚ Apologies, the American Comedy Channel had gone offline, what you heard was the last few seconds of the buffered stream looping. We know of the occasionally problem with this channel and shortly will be putting a brand new server in place which will prevent these issues. Regards John

I like ROK radio apart from the Clithero Kid which is aimed at 12 year olds. Just two points: 1). The announcers are difficult to understand and 2). It is frustrating to be told what us coming next and then broadcast something completely different or not scheduled. Otherwise, great.

Hi Vic. We will be addressing the announcers soon as we have found a great voice over artist who has offered his services. As for the Clitheroe Kid, lots of people like him, I understand that you and others may not, but we can't please all the people all the time. Thanks for commenting. John

Thanks for British Comedy 2 -- it gives me the chance to keep listening to good old British comedy while avoiding Jimmy Clitheroe and Hinge & Bracket !!! One suggestion: Could you display the current time in 24-hour-clock format? After all, the schedules are shown in 24-hour format,so that would make them tie up. Keep up the good work!
