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.

March 29, 2015 — Volume XX, Issue 7
Commentary and Introductions by Uncle Ricky

This week, we remember birthdays! The Real Don Steele was born on April 1, and The Slim One was born on March 31. We have great new exhibits from both as our Repository resumes for the Seventh issue of our Twentieth year.


The Real Don Steele, KHJ Los Angeles, June 27, 1968

Here's The Real Don Steele ahead of his time, as always, with a sample of an idyllic early Summer in 1968 Los Angeles! All Commercials and Promos intact, Tiny Tim singin' his name and rockin' the Very Top of Los Angeles Top 40 in the early Summer of 1968. Thanks to The Real Don Steele Collection, Ray Randolph and Shaune Steele for yet another wonderful, perfect Boss Radio aircheck.


The Slim One, KKFR Phoenix AZ, March 30, 1987 Pt.4

And here's Part 4 of The Slim One on KKFR in Phoenix, Arizona, from March 30, 1987. Happy Birthday, Slim! You really sound like you were having fun on the day before your birthday, and we hope this year is a happy one for you, too. Thanks to Kenneth Andersson for this excellent 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."
