REELRADIO THE REEL TOP 40 RADIO REPOSITORY
Welcome to The Reel Top 40 Radio Repository!
The Authentic Aircheck Museum
of Classic Top 40 Radio
And the Greatest Radio of All Time!

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.

ALL OUR EXHIBITS ARE NOW AVAILABLE AIRCHECK CHANNEL MEMORIAL DAY ONLY THE TOP 60 OF THE SIXTIES WITH PETE FORNATALE

Two LONG exhibits this week (with 'scoped counterparts) that are five years and 3000 miles apart, but still represent outstanding examples of the Top 40 format!


Lee Simms, KCBQ San Diego, January 10, 1969

It took almost 16 years, but it turns out there was a lot more of Lee Simms on KCBQ from January 10, 1969. This is old-fashioned, low-fidelity AM radio, but you will probably like all 97 minutes. Thanks to The Tom Konard Aircheck Factory/Yesterdial Collection!


Banana Joe, Y-100 WHYI Miami FL March 25, 1974

Every now and then, it's nice to have an exhibit with a LOT of energy, plus, it's from FM! Banana Joe is loud and excited and we like it. Our thanks to The Eric Rhoads Collection!

"... 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."
