I"m glad you like my picture collection. Take as many as you want and make them your own. They all came from the net, mostly usenet. I haven't posted too many lately, mainly because I can't remember which ones I posted and which ones I haven't. My memory isn't what it used to be. Thanks for the comments. I am learning from them.--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Rick
I noticed your comment on the quest book at COTR and you were interested in the name "Calfkiller".
I have been asked often about the name Calfkiller. I live in the Cumberland Mountains area of Tennessee near a stream called Calfkiller River. Calfkiller was the name of a Cherokee Indian Chief from this area of Tennessee.
Old time radio had always been an interest to me and often friends would ask me where to find the shows. The web page was originally started just for friends to view links to content when I ran across something of interest. The name Calfkiller was easy to remember for anyone from the area and was just used for simplicity and easy for my friends to remember. It was done as a hobby and will always be. One thing led to another and the visitors to the site grew. I never changed the name. So I guess old Chief Calfkiller's name lives on in reference to Old Time Radio.

I have made a boo-boo somehow and accidentally moved all the ‘S’ Files to the bottom of the ‘R’ folder. Until I can figure out a way to fix this, this is where you can find them. Anyone with a solution, mail me off-list. Thanks jimb
