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.

Commentary and Introductions by Uncle Ricky

Support has been good, and is likely to outlast our ability to provide new content. If you have quality, full-length airchecks, NOW is the time to contribute. No junk, please, only the best material will be considered. Write ricky@reelradio.com if you have airchecks that should be included in our Repository.


The Last Day of TenQ, Los Angeles - Part Zero

Yes, it's Part ZERO, because Part 1 was taken back in 2006. The hour prior to that was recently recovered and restored by Rob Frankel, so here it is! Thanks, Rob, for all your wonderful contributions.


Dan Ingram, WABC New York, April 17, 1970

It's only a half-hour, but we've never heard a bad half-hour from Dan Ingram! Classic 1970 Top 40 from the Big Apple and a now defunct radio corporation. We loved 'em, here's a chance to enjoy them one more time.

"... 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."
