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.

Richard Sands, KITS-FM San Francisco, August 13, 1983

This is a very nice, mostly hi-fi stereo recording of Richard Sands on Mike Joseph's HOT HITS format, broadcast on KITS in San Francisco, almost 32 years ago. Some believe this format was the last gasp of true, hit-oriented Top 40 radio.
Thanks to The Scott Rayer Collection. As always, please REFRESH your browser if the exhibit does not appear.


AP World In Sound, 1965

AP was (and is) The Associated Press. In addition to those big, clacking teletype machines, they also provided audio services, plus this compilation of audio they had collected for the year. Since we are halfway through 2015, this 50th anniversary tribute is appropriate and fascinating listening for all who grew up in the 60's. Thanks to The Peter Kanze Collection!

"... 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."
