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



If you have quality, full-length airchecks, NOW is the time to contribute. No junk, please, only the best material will be considered. NO MP3, and nothing that has already been posted online. Write ricky@reelradio.com if you have airchecks that should be included in our Repository.


DEBUT COLLECTION This week, we welcome The James O'Neal Collection!

Scott Burton, WDGY Minneapolis, MN July 6, 1967

Scott Burton was PD at WDGYat the time of this aircheck.

Perry St. John, WDGY Minneapolis, MN July 5, 1968

The WDGY jocks were All American Boss Jocks, so they covered all bases. Perry St. John was tall, dark and then some on a Million Dollar Weekend. Thanks to James O'Neal for both Minneapolis Summertime airchecks!


Gus Gossert, WCBS-FM, New York, NY July 19, 1970

And our thanks to The Peter Kanze Collection for this Gus Gossert recording from WCBS-FM. It's an hour of the Sunday Night Oldies But Goodies Show.

"... 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."
