Susana B. Grassino, Córdoba, Argentina says
Just wanted to say that a friend (Juana Kenis, who lives just a few
blocks away from my apartment) alerted me to your latest update at AOR and - wow! There it was - an
account of that FM radio program in Buenos Aires. It was a wonderful surprise to listen to
your message in Spanish. I must confess I didn't know you were able to speak perfect Spanish.
(Ed's Note: I cheated - I'm a fraud!)
I was so excited at the prospect of attending the radio show with
Carlos and Natalio, since I'd been invited too, but, unfortunately, Buenos Aires is very far from
Córdoba and I couldn't make it. Next time, maybe. However, I agree with every line Carlos wrote in
his report, and I think there's no need to talk one more time about the feeling radio-theatre has
left for many people in Argentina. Thank you for making room for this event at your site. Although
the radio program was enjoyed only by those living in Buenos Aires, I think we Avengers fans
from elsewhere in Argentina - or even around the world - have something to be proud of.

I was visiting your site and just wanted to say hello. I've seen The
Avengers episodes so many times that I think I can remember the dialogue almost by heart. But I'd
never heard about The Avengers on the Radio. And I wouldn't have if it hadn't been for your
Steve Archer, Virginia, USA says
Thank you so much for your labor of love! The Avengers have always
been a touchstone for me that I keep coming back to. About seven years ago I purchased a few cassettes
of the radio shows from an OTR dealer after being shocked to discover that they even existed - and
adored them on their own terms much as you do - I think they are every bit as fun as the TV series and
have the plus of being portable! I love taking long walks around the countryside with Steed and Emma
in my ear. But the effort you have put into the background research, the website - and above all -
the audio restorations - is astonishing. How fortunate we lazy fans are to have such dedicated
caretakers of a treasure that would otherwise be lost.
Will Ryan, Los Angeles, USA says
Great research, wonderful initiative, splendid treats, contagious enthusiasm,
captivating on-going detective stories (e.g. the search for the missing tapes, personnel, scripts,
documentation), dramatic triumphs (the dramatic appearance of Donald Monat, of Tony Jay, et al)... and
all surrounding those splendid characters, Steed and Mrs. Peel. In short: a rare and wonderful
piece of work, this web-site, and thank you for it.
Kai Baer, Finland says
A few years back, I was searching for episodes of the Gerry Anderson series
UFO, and was helped by two people in the UK. Not only did they help me with my
UFO quest, they re-introduced me to The New Avengers, which aired in Finland in the
early Eighties (if memory serves me correct). I was amazed how well I remembered the series, and
wanted more. Never having seen any of the "original"
Avengers, I was introduced to them as well (I believe the original series never aired in
Finland, but I could be mistaken). Now, two years later, after being helped by my UK contacts to
acquire most of the existing shows, I still hunger for more.
Six months ago, I came across your website, and immediately started to search for the radio shows. I
found someone who helped me get the shows that existed back then in mp3 format. Overjoyed by the fact
that I now had more
Avengers adventures to enjoy, I was also a bit saddened that that seemed to be it. No more
Avengers stories, no more Steed and Mrs. Peel. Feeling a huge gratitude toward my contacts
in the UK, I of course immediately made copies of the show to my friend, who knew there had been a
radio show, but thought none existed. So you can imagine the surprise he got when I mailed him my
parcel with loads of audio plays! I even made cover sleeves for them all.
Today, I thought I'd check what's going on on
The Avengers websites. I couldn't believe my eyes! Newly discovered shows!!! Oh man, I
just can't wait!
