Can your readers help a group of OTR (Old Time Radio) enthusiasts preserve one of Britain's best loved radio comedies?

At the peak of its popularity in the 1960s, BBC's The Clitheroe Kid Radio Show, starring Jimmy Clitheroe, attracted 10 million listeners. Existing episodes are still aired today on BBC Radio 7.

The BBC retained only a small percentage of the shows made. Fortunately, with reel-to-reel and cassette recording in the home commonplace at this time, they may still exist.

If you have any such recordings, please contact me. They could be the only surviving copy of an episode. A similar appeal last year proved very successful.
