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.

Shotgun Tom Kelly Tribute for Pacific Pioneer Broadcasters, March 27, 2015

This VIDEO was produced by Jhani Kaye for presentation at the Pacific Pioneer Broadcasters Awards Ceremony on March 27, 2015.

Joel Miller, WCCK-FM Erie, PA. January 1, 1976

We don't know much about Joel Miller, but WCCK-FM later changed to WRTS, Star-104. Lots of neat jingles. This was a cool station! Thanks to The Ray Glasser Collection!


Dan Taylor, WNBC NY Time Machine, April 3, 1988 Pt.1

Dan Taylor is excellent, as always, on this Easter Sunday 1988 re-creation of 1960's WABC radio called the WNBC Time Machine. Thanks to Mark Marien for this GOLDEN GIFT!

"... 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."
