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.

Welcome! Sign up again and please open a new account if the machine doesn't know who you are. All accounts expired for more than 30 days are subject to deletion. We have a long list of new exhibits from an old friend this week. None of them are long-form exhibits, unlike many of the 57 new exhibits posted since July 7, 2014. So, we will also list a selection of those exhibits that are now available for the hundreds now out of touch. THANK YOU for signing up again!


Chickenmania Episode 1-11 through 1-17

Refresh the page if these don't show up. The late Tim Benko was an amazing friend to REELRADIO. He kept sending us giant padded packages of cassettes and reel tapes, beginning way back in 1996. The "Windy City" Airchecks Collection continues to rejuvenate the Repository 19 years later, with 7 fresh Episodes from Dick Orkin's ChickenMania.

"... 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."
