*** WARNING ***
This area is for the patient and the passionate only!!!

Hiss, crackle, pop! Welcome to the scrap heap! This is the world of OTR that didn't make the cut for our main site. Each episode in this section has been identified by our reviewers as having one or more serious audio defects. The episodes are posted here so that passionate collectors and patient OTR lovers alike can enjoy some extra entertainment. Think of it as on online rummage sale. You may find gems or junk. But it will take a little sacrifice on your part to listen extra intently, hence the name "Ear Benders".

Murky, muffled, hissy, crackly, too quiet, overmodulated. These are some of the terms our team of reviewers use to describe defective shows. If you can put up with it, download a show today!

This no-frills, bargain basement section of otrfan.com is subject to change without notice. It is updated on an irregular basis. Shows might be here for a day or a year. You have been warned!
