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.

Commentary and Introductions by Uncle Ricky


The Herman Griffith Show, AFRTS 1970 #12

The Soul Philosopher Herman Griffith is back with another soul-studded hour of R&B, Jazz and Pop faves of 1970, produced by the American Forces Radio and Television Network. There's an Astrological Soulcast and a States of the Flag feature for North Carolina. Thanks to The Pete Battistini Collection!


Les Turpin, WCBS-FM New York July 12, 1971 Pt.1

Les Turpin apparently disappeared after his time at KYNO, KGB, KFRC and WCBS-FM, where he was last heard in 1971. This particular midday hour is a wild ride featuring album favorites and a few well-known pop hits, and a little bit of Les. Thanks to The Rob Frankel Collection!


Mason Dixon, KCBQ San Diego, CA. September 24, 1977

This one sounds good! It's been a while since we've had some first class, straight-ahead high-energy Top 40 from the legendary KCBQ in San Diego. Mason Dixon lines 'em up and each one is a hit! Thanks to Tom Konard and The Aircheck Factory Collection!


Harry Harrison, WABC New York, January 16, 1979

The venerable Harry Harrison was tight and bright at WABC during the late '70's, with music beds for extended talk segments and a recurrent-heavy playlist. This hour from 38 years ago this week is a great example of a grand radio station - number one in the nation's number one radio market. It's a GOLDEN GIFT from Betty Wood!

"... 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."
