There was a scholar in Ann Arbor who had posted ALL of the Mercury Theater
programs at one point; I used it in order to source an excerpt of "Dracula"
for a radio Halloween broadcast I did one year. I haven't seen it lately,
so I guess someone must have gotten to her. But it was really a well done
site, a model
of redistributing OTR for scholarly purposes.
