The Metropolitan Washington Old Time Radio Club (MWOTRC) was created in 1984 by Jim Burnette (1945-2001). The purpose of the club has always been to exchange, collect, and preserve any materials from the Golden Age of Broadcasting. Individually, and as a club, members collect and share OTR audio copies, books, scripts, and related radio broadcast materials. The initial group of charter members, consisting of a half-dozen OTR fans, was drawn from the region of Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia. Monthly meetings are held the second Friday of every month, except for June and December.

In June and December, there is a luncheon held on a Saturday afternoon.

In September, we hold our meeting at the Mid Atlantic Nostalgia Convention (MANC) in Hunt Valley, Md. See our Links page for MANC details.

Membership is open to all who have a love of old time radio programs.
