The Writings of Jack Mann

Jack is very familiar to many of you because of what is lovingly known as: "Jack's KILLER List of OTR Web Sites". This is, without a doubt, the most comprehensive list of just about any Web Site that has anything to do with Old Time Radio. If you haven't already been there, you should do so as soon as you possibly can. Jack not only is an avid OTR collector, but is also a really nice guy. He wants to help out the OTR collectors and traders with his newly written "A Guide to OTR Trading" (see below). Jack says that he would like feedback on this Guide so that it will be THE perpetual handbook on OTR trading.
