: : And there is another audience I have yet to seen addressed in this forum. I provide services for people with disabilities, including those who are blind. Those who are blind (at various ages) tell me they love OTR too because, with radio, it is unnecessary to see what action is going on from Jack's poor old Maxwell chugging along a street to stuff falling out of Fibber McGee's closet, or Earth being invaded by Martians!
=================
That's a very good point. I was a bit surprised when I visited FOTR for the first time and found out that a significant portion of the OTR community is blind; just never thought about it previously. On the Internet, I simply don't know that unless someone volunteers the information.

So I'd bet that there are many among the 1,600+ members who fall into that category. I know of one member who is deaf, and enjoys Jack through his movies and TV shows.
