Latest recording


Welcome to Otley & District Talking Newspaper's website, where you'll be able to listen to recent recordings, subscribe to our free 'USB by post' service and learn more about the activities of the Talking Newspaper.

Publications we read from weekly include the Wharfedale & Aireborough Observer and the Wharfe Valley Times. Every two months we produce a magazine featuring stories from Country Living, Dalesman, Saga and Yorkshire Life. Otley residents receive a quarterly recording of the Town Council's Otley Matters.

The areas that our 'USB by post' service covers includes Otley, Pool-in-Whafedale, Menston, Burley-in-Wharfedale, Horsforth, Yeadon, Rawdon and Guiseley.

Receive USB by Post

While recent recordings are available on our website, many listeners still prefer to subscribe to our weekly 'USB by Post' service – completely free to those eligible to receive it.


Volunteer Roles

The continuing success of the Talking Newspaper and the pleasure provided to its listeners is only possible thanks to the contributions of the volunteers.

Our volunteer page highlights some of the roles that our volunteers carry out, and we are always looking out for new volunteers who might be able to give up a little time to help us.
