Presidents-Roosevelt-and-Taft-1909

“Mr. President” was an old time radio show that aired in the 40’s and 50’s about events in the every day life of American presidents. To challenge listeners, the identity of the President in each episode was not made known until the end of the show.

The Internet Archive has quite a few episodes of “Mr. President” available as free MP3 downloads:

Old Time Radio Programs, Mister President –Download individual episodes of approximately 7mb each, or the whole collection of 29 episodes, which is 54mb.

(If you have slow internet service, a download manager is very helpful. I use the free Orbit Downloader to schedule large and multiple files for downloading overnight.)

Don’t have time to download all those shows? Would you like more episodes? Check out OTRCat.com:

Old Time Radio Catalog: Mr. President –CD of 75 episodes of  “Mr. President” in MP3 format, only $5 plus shipping. Must be played in a computer or special MP3 player device.

 

These would make wonderful supplements to your American History studies –and a great resource for your “audio learners”.

 

Blessings,
