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.

Mad Daddy Pete Myers WINS New York NY November 29, 1963

It's unlikely that this one was actually broadcast on November 29, 1963, more likely the day after, or even the month before, but it is authentic Mad Daddy Pete Myers on WINS in New York back when they rocked! This one was contributed by The Andy Bologovsky Collection way back in 2004. Thank you, Andy, I told you I would get to everything eventually.


Jackson Armstrong, KFRC San Francisco, August 17, 1982 Pt.2

And even though Part 1 of Jackson Armstrong, KFRC San Francisco, August 17, 1982 debuted just a few weeks ago, this one just felt right for the last week of August. Many thanks again to The Scott Rayer Collection for another sample of legendary jock Jack Armstrong.

"... 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."
