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.

The Real Don Steele, KHJ Los Angeles, March 15, 1968

It was broadcast 49 years ago this week! (Can you believe it baby?) The Real Don Steele is back on another Fractious Friday from 1968 and it's the Ides of March, too! Thanks to Shaune Steele and Ray Randolph for another hour of Kindness, Happiness and Joy! (Please reload (F5) the page if this exhibit doesn't appear.)


Dan Ingram, WABC New York, December 21, 1971

Here's One Hour and 39 minutes of Big Dan Ingram from a few days before Christmas in 1971, proving that it can be Christmas every day of the year at REELRADIO. This GOLDEN GIFT is from James O'Neal, who has more to contribute in his upcoming Collection.


Jay Robbins, WYFE Rockford, IL. July 1, 1972

Contributor Tom Konard of Yesterdial told me he used to send out blank tapes to radio stations, and ask them to return an aircheck. This is one that came back from Mid-America in July of 1972. Thank, You, Tom!

"... 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."
