Last Update: November 25, 2019

Happy Holidays to all our supporters and listeners. Your patronage is much appreciated!

On December 31 & January 1, Aircheck Channel will feature our annual New Year's Special. Our program includes KFRC Big 100 from 1968, WOR-FM Top 100 from 1970, and American Top 40's Top 100 from 1978. The event begins Tuesday at 9:00am PST and ends Wednesday 9:00pm PST.

PURPOSE Founded in 1996, this online aircheck museum is operated by REELRADIO, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The primary function of REELRADIO is archival and educational. Our focus is Top 40 radio from 1955 to 1989. Our aircheck exhibits are recordings of one-time radio broadcasts, both full-length and "Scoped". Scoped airchecks are shorter in length and do not include musical performances.

We encourage users to offer comments on our exhibits and to participate in a dialogue about Top 40 Radio, the people, the music, popular culture and history preserved in these airchecks. REELRADIO endeavors to provide a forum for discussion, commentary, education, and critique.

"... Todd (Storz) and some others were sitting around figuring out what they could do on their station and they noticed that WDSU had a program called the Top 20. And they thought if the Top 20 was successful, that the Top 40 would be even better - and that's what they said - We're going to be twice as good as WDSU 'cause we're gonna play - The Top 40." - Hon. Wm. L. Armstrong, U.S.S., Ret., Denver, Colorado
