REELRADIO THE REEL TOP 40 RADIO REPOSITORY
Welcome to The Reel Top 40 Radio Repository!
The Authentic Aircheck Museum
of Classic Top 40 Radio
And the Greatest Radio of All Time!

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.

Bob Lewis, Gus Gossert, WCBS-FM New York NY May 8, 1970

Nice! Here's a wonderful snapshot of New York superstars Bob Lewis and Gus Gossert on that awesome WCBS-FM format, this week, 45 years ago! Thanks to The Peter Kanze Collection!


Dick Shannon, WCFL Chicago, June 21, 1975

Hard to believe, but this is our first aircheck of Dick Shannon and he sounds very happy on this early Saturday morning at WCFL. Thanks to The John Celarek Collection!


Michelle Ross, KSFX-FM San Francisco, September 1978

KSFX is now in New Mexico, but back in 1978, it was a San Francisco FM station. Michelle Ross was a classy host for this R&B+Funk format. Thanks to The Mike Miles Collection!

"... 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."
