Most people take OTR to encompass old radio broadcasts, not playing of old records like Dismuke's 
internet-streaming show.

That said, do some surfing at archive.org because there are also many recordings of live band remote 
broadcasts, which were the common way a lot of music was broadcast back in the day. For many years, 
many radio stations would not play records over the air, for a number of reasons. This changed 
dramatically in the years after WWII. This was not a hard-fast rule, there were exceptions in both 
legitimate licensed broadcasting as well as pirate and off-shore broadcasting.

So, a show like Dismuke's probably wouldn't exist under the lexicon of OTR.

By the way, in the perfect world, the major copyright owners (megaglomerate music companies) would 
happily and wholeheartedly fund a multi-hour weekly series for NPR hosted by Dismuke or someone like 
him highlighting all these gems from their vaults. The sponsorship annoucements could tell listeners 
to go to a special "store" at Amazon or the like to buy the reissue CD's of whatever is available in 
that format. This would take a different vault-management style than has been shown in recent years.

Thanks Tom. Those are good, but what I really meant was more people
like Dismuke who program old music currently - with commentary and
the like...
