HITBOUND! New Exhibits for the Week of
August 31, 2014
Introductions by Uncle Ricky

It's a bi-weekly HITBOUND WEEK, and AC#008 includes something new. This is a continuous loop of pre-selected, unscoped (with music) airchecks. It is completely legal, we wish we could make one just for you, and we're working on it. Our selections were requested by our subscribers. RIAA updates are here. This stream works on many MOBILE DEVICES, too.

RIAA COMPLIANT UNSCOPED AIRCHECKS

Click here for our demonstration of unscoped airchecks presented in a "continuous program" as defined by U.S. Copyright law and enforced by the RIAA. Real Player is not required. THIS WEEK: THREE exhibits, about 3 hours, 18 minutes. The second one in the list below is NEW. All are By Request!

SPECIAL LABOR DAY TRIPLE PLAY Thanks to Jeff Cope for suggesting this Labor Day Triple Play, a 2-hour bonus for the stream above on MONDAY LABOR DAY (US PT) only. These will be added to the stream above, but only for Labor Day.

COMMENT below is now specific to the current continuous stream, and it's a good place to leave your suggestions for next week's continous stream.

[EXTRAS] [COLLECTIONS] [SPECIAL REPORTS] [WINNERS] [LINKAGE]

"... 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."
