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.
June 6, 2019, marks one year since the passing of Uncle Ricky. In rememberance, Reelradio looks back at his radio career with this special recording of a young, 18 year-old Ricky at the helm of WIXE in Monroe, North Carolina. Please enjoy and remember Richard in the comments.
