I just helped my mother get this on her iPad and it worked just fine. Got her a premium subscription easily. However, on my Google pixel, its just the "loading" screen whenever I try to select a package. I'll try it on my iPad as well? Maybe if I can get the subscription there, and then log back in here, it'll work, but unfortunately, right now, it is a useless app.

IF this really is "Free Old Time Radio" then WHY does it keep stopping several times when I'm trying to listen to something to tell me that I'm not subscribed? Every time it stops, it makes me restart it all the way back to the beginning! Why doesn't it just pause and restart where I left off? IF it's truly FREE then subscribing should be optional, NOT mandatory. We shouldn't be pestered every couple minutes to subscribe! Too many ads!

You can listen to our When Radio Was program within the app for free without a subscription.

This app has lots of room for improvement. I enjoy old time radio shows, and wanted to "binge listen" to shows while I'm driving. I drive long distances every day. Many buttons and featured in the app don't work. Bookmarking for one. And if you choose to listen to all of a group of shows and the come back later, you have to start all over again. The button to email them is another. I paid for the year subscription, but unless the app is fixed I won't renew.
