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

Dave Hull, KRLA Los Angeles, August 18, 1966 (restored)

This exhibit originally appeared in August, 1997 - almost 18 years ago. Some years later, RealPlayer dropped support for their 1997 format on Macintosh computers, so no one with a Mac has been able to hear this exhibit for several years. A subscriber request triggered the re-encoding and ultimately, the restoration of this exhibit. It's a classic from The Jeff March Collection, and even the 'scoped version sounds a whole lot better. It will play on Macs, and it is available for mobile listening, too. Thanks, Jeff!


Jack Armstrong, KTNQ Los Angeles July 27, 1979

It's a double play from The Jeff March Collection this week with this short but tight slice of a somewhat subdued Jack Armstrong on TEN-Q in Los Angeles - 36 years ago this week.


Gus Gossert, WCBS-FM New York, NY April 28, 1970

Another very hip offering of early WCBS-FM, in Stereo, from 45 years ago. Gus Gossert is relaxed, casual, having fun and you will love the variety and nostalgia. Apparently this one has been mislabeled for years. We thought it was from July, but it seems to be from April! Thanks to our REELRADIO commenters for the correction and The Peter Kanze Collection for the exhibit.

"... 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."
