The links above are for the exhibit description and SCOPED exhibits, if available. To LISTEN to the complete exhibits listed above, Click here for our Continuous Program. Real Player is not required. You can also LISTEN ON MOBILE!

It's really important that you tell us what you want to hear. Until we can restore your choice to access our historic recordings, if there is something you want to hear, suggestions are welcome via COMMENT.

Before we can present an unscoped recording on our Aircheck Channel, it must be cut into pieces. Then, we are required to insert small bits of metadata. This is called splitting and tagging. Here's a page that lists all of the exhibits we have converted for presentation acceptable to the RIAA. These can be more quickly added to our playlist than those requiring splitting and tagging.

"... 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."
