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.

New Exhibits for the Week of
August 23, 2015 — Volume XX, Issue 28
Commentary and Introductions by Uncle Ricky

Friday, August 28, 2015 marks the 5th anniversary of the unveiling ceremony of the KCBQ monument in San Diego. "Shotgun Tom" Kelly and 97-year-old Jack Vincent visited the monument this week.


Peter Huntington May, KIKX Tucson, AZ January 30 1968

Thanks to The Rob Frankel Collection for our second exhibit of Peter Huntington May on KIKX in Tucson, Arizona. Before KIKX, Peter Huntington May had worked at KISN/Portland, with The Real Don Steele. This helps to explain the countless unexpected inclusions by Steele on Fractious Fridays at KHJ.


The Night Wolf, WMAR-FM Baltimore MD September 1983

Well, it's Hot Hits, but contributor Roddy Freeman says this one will leave you laughing, and we hope you agree. It's always a blast to hear another high-energy hit radio jock, and The Night Wolf is a wild one. Thanks, Roddy!

"... 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."
