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.

New Exhibits for the Week of
August 2, 2015 — Volume XX, Issue 25
Commentary and Introductions by Uncle Ricky

Mike Larsen, KROY Sacramento CA. January 4, 1962 (restored)

This exhibit originally appeared in October, 1996 - coming up on 19 years ago. Like our restored exhibit last week, no one with a Mac has been able to hear this exhibit for several years. It was fun to restore this classic aircheck of Mike Larsen, the earliest known aircheck of KROY, a legendary Top 40 in Sacramento, California. Of course, both 'scoped and unscoped are available for mobile listening, too. Thank You, Mike!


Mike Larsen, Liz & Lynn Anderson, KROY Sacramento CA. DJ Jingle 1961

And with the news that Lynn Anderson passed away last week, we were reminded of this unusual and very rare jingle contributed and created by Mike Larsen. Yep, that's Lynn and her mother Liz singing background!


Jackson Armstrong, KFRC San Francisco, August 17, 1982 Pt.1

Ah! More KFRC and the late and great Jackson Armstrong from The Scott Rayer Collection. This is Part One, with more to come at a later date. Thank you, Scott!

"... 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."
