WELCOME TO THE METROPOLITAN WASHINGTON OLD TIME RADIO CLUB!

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.

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

Complete information about joining is found by pressing the JOIN button above on the radio dial.

John Abbott was voted the winner of the Cawelti Award. John has represented the Club well with presentations at recent conventions, in Cincinnati (June '13) and the Mid-Atlantic Nostalgia Convention (Sept '13). His expertise in "all things Johnny Dollar" has taken shape in books, and in articles in Radio Recall. His affable presence at meetings is appreciated and he pitches in for tasks as needed.
