Last Update: June 6, 2019

On June 6, 2018 we learned of the untimely death of Richard Irwin, founder of Reelradio.com. Please take a moment to reflect on everything he did to leave this lasting legacy. He worked tirelessly and for peanuts to make this site what it is.

We have a new exhibit this week! In celebration of Richard's life, please enjoy the Hitbound recording seen below.

In other news, it's summer and the new curators have a bit more time to bring Reelradio up to date. We appreciate all your patience and show of support.

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.

"... 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." - Hon. Wm. L. Armstrong, U.S.S., Ret., Denver, Colorado
