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

Welcome to the last issue (#52) of our twentieth volume (XX). Next week, we are officially 20 years online, and we begin Volume XXI (Year 21) with a Special Announcement. Don't miss it, and enjoy this week's super fave February HITBOUNDS.


Al Brady, WOR-FM New York, NY February 5, 1970

Only a half hour, but a wonderful sample of 1970 WOR-FM/New York, and a classic Drake format presentation by the late Al Brady (d. July 30, 2012, 67). It's a GOLDEN GIFT from Al Kirschner.


Charlie Tuna, KHJ Los Angeles, February 27, 1970

Pete Fuentes contributed the original 'scoped version of this great Charlie Tuna aircheck back in 1997, and Michael Hagerty found an unscoped version in 2010. So now, both are together in Pete's Collection, as suggested by Mike. Thanks guys!

"... 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."
