Updated February 10, 2013.
The newest addition is item #70.
In no particular order.
ABC Superadio Demo. With Dan Ingram. From 5/82. Demonstration of a new
satellite-delivered top-40 format that was to have begun shortly after WABC became a talk
station in May 1982. The format never made it to the air before ABC abandoned the
idea at the last minute because they decided it couldn't be profitable. (14
WINS/WMGM DeGaulle Hoax. From 5/28/58. Bruce Morrow introduces to a
broadcaster's convention a tape of the famous Charles DeGaulle hoax where "M.
DeGaulle" plugs WINS. (6 minutes)
Tribute to Alan Freed. A collection of snippets of Alan Freed,
including his apology for the massive underestimate of the attendance at the "Moondog
Coronation Ball" on March 21, 1952. He is heard imploring his listeners to call in to say
that they will stick with him. Otherwise he will take his show off the air. No date is
given. (40 minutes)
WIXZ/KQV Montage. Of the Pittsburgh stations, from 1/71.
WKIP Promotion. From WKIP, Poughkeepsie, NY (1450 AM), this is
apparently a 45 rpm record sent out by this station to advertisers and so forth promoting
the station. No date is given, but I suspect early 1969 judging by the nature
of the newscast samples given (for example, the "upcoming Apollo 11 launch").
CKLW-The First 50 Years. This is a four hour, four part retrospective
of CKLW discussing, as the title proclaims, the station's first 50 years. Included are
airchecks, news excerpts, and discussions of "highlights" of the station's
history, such as the time some hockey fanatic tried to cut down the CKLW broadcast tower
when the station announced that it couldn't carry the hockey playoffs. Although I do not
have the exact date, I believe this was put together in the early 1980s.
CKLW, a montage from American Airchexx. Features Dave Shafer (sp?) and
Terry Knight. (19 minutes)
Cleveland Radio Profile from American Airchexx - 1976. This is a tape
of a British radio program that profiled pop music stations in various cities in the
United States. In this particular edition, Cleveland radio is profiled, and the stations
discussed are WGAR, WLYT, WIXY, WMMS, and WGCL. Featured are airchecks and interviews with
station program directors, among other things. (44 minutes)
Tribute to Dick Purtan and Tom Ryan. From 2/83. Dick Purtan and Tom
Ryan, who were at one time morning personalities at CKLW, are profiled in this show
prepared by an aircheck service (?). In 1983, they went to work at WCZY-FM (95.5) in
Detroit. (27 minutes)
WLS, A 25-Year Salute. From the Aircheck Factory. WLS became a top-40
station on May 2, 1960. This special was put together in 1985 as the station celebrated 25
years with a contemporary music format. Contains much detail on the history of WLS and its
predecessors. (115 minutes)
WBCS/WKLB Format "Switch." From 8/23/96 and 8/24/96. Before
the switch (the first 7 minutes of this tape), WBCS (96.9, Boston, C&W) broadcasts
through the left channel, and WKLB (105.7, Framingham/Boston, C&W) broadcasts through
the right channel. At the midnight switchover, WKLB's signal (the right channel) merges
with WBCS's (the left channel). The announcer then identifies them as "WBCS, 96.9,
Boston, and WKLB, 105.7, Framingham/Boston." Both of these stations were
country before the simulcast. What happened is that Greater Media, which owned WBCS/96.9,
bought WKLB/105.7, another country station in the market, and decided to change the format
of 105.7 in an effort to move Boston's entire country audience to one frequency. The
ultimate result was that the WKLB calls ended up on 96.9, and 105.7 became WROR, with a
"greatest hits of the 60s, 70s, and 80s" oldies/AC format. This tape is a
portion of a simulcast that occurred for a week between all the format changes.
10Q on K-Hits 97. From 7/31/79. On this day KTNQ (1020 AM), Los Angeles
began broadcasting as KHTZ over 97.1 FM. The full crew of KTNQ moved en masse to KHTZ, and
for the hours leading up to the 12 noon switchover, the KTNQ signal was broadcast
simultaneously over 1020 AM and 97.1 FM. KHTZ had been running a country format, and that
died with the KTNQ arrival. KTNQ itself became a Spanish format station at the noon
switchover. This aircheck runs from about 8:40 to about 9:40 a.m., so it does not have the
noon completion of the switchover. It does feature Charlie Tuna, who continued on 'HTZ,
and Bob Morgan, who had been announcer on the country version of 'HTZ. Also featured is a
guest appearance by Wolfman Jack, and we get to see (hear?) a side of him that we don't
normally see when he's a DJ. (61 minutes, unscoped)
Larry Lujack Highlights. From both WLS and WCFL. Snippets of him from
the 1970s. (18 minutes, scoped)
New York City Radio Montage. Clips from WABC, WINS, WMGM, and WMCA,
featuring Charlie Greer, Herbert Oscar Anderson, Bruce Morrow, Dan Ingram, Bob Dayton (and
his 20th-anniversary-of-the-Hiroshima-bombing stunt), Rick Sklar, Mad Daddy, Murray the K,
and Bob-a-lu (Bob Lewis). Also includes brief IDs of WABC-FM, WCBS-FM, WNEW-FM, WSUV-FM,
and WPLJ-FM. Also has WMGM switchover to WHN. (21 minutes)
The History of PAMS Jingles. (46 minutes)
KHJ Silver Anniversary CD. From 1990. A celebration of the Los Angeles
station. (46 minutes)
A Tribute to KHJ: 1965-1970. From the Aircheck Factory. Contains some
great airchecks from the '65 to '70 time period. (107 minutes)
WIXZ Jocks "Come Alive" on WIIC-TV. From 3/1/69. WMCK became
WIXZ (Pittsnburgh, PA) at the end of February 1969. As a promotional stunt, the jocks for
the new WIXZ were featured on the WIIC- TV program "Come Alive."
Toronto FM Band Scan. From January 1996. Contains samples of CILQ
(107.1), CHUM-FM (104.5), CFNY (102.1), CKFM (99.9), CHFI (98.1), CJEZ (97.3), CISS
(92.5), CJRT (91.1), and CKLN (88.1). (89 minutes)
Radio Netherlands Media Network Weekly Communications Magazine Show.
From December 27, 1994, this weekly half-hour program from Europe discusses radio station
jingles. Featured is an interview with Jonathan Wolford of JAM Creative Productions. Lots
of examples. (30 minutes)
Radio Netherlands Media Network Weekly Communications Magazine Show.

liners and sweepers. Examples are played. (29 minutes)
Paul Barsky Reminiscing About Himself. On WPLY-FM (100.3,
"Y-100"), Philadelphia. Mr. Barsky began his radio career at WAXC-AM (1460),
Rochester, NY in the late 1970s. On 10/25/96, unbeknownst to him, his engineer played on
the air several scoped airchecks of him from his days at WAXC. This aircheck captures Mr.
Barsky's reaction and commentary. (15 minutes for the relevant part, 28 minutes total
Amos 'n' Andy's DJ Show. A clip of a show from 9/23/54. (6 minutes)
The Show of Stars-The Big Bopper. From 1992. Demo of a radio show that
features recording stars of the '50s and '60s. This sample features the career of J. P.
Richardson, "The Big Bopper," who, along with Buddy Holly and Ritchie Valens,
was killed in a plane crash near Mason City, Iowa on 2/3/59. (51 min)
Buffalo Radio Montage. From the early '70s to the early '80s. Features,
in no particular order, clips from WGRQ, WKBW, WNIA, WYSL- AM&FM, WPHD, WBEN-FM, and
CHUM (Toronto). Jocks featured include Dean Clark, Tom Adkins, George Hamburger, and
Robert W. Taylor, among others. (55 minutes)

American Comedy Network. Radio stations from all over the U.S. are featured, including
KBPI, "Y-95," WWWS, "Y-107," WKDD ("96-FM"), KISN

Joe Garagiola and Harry Carey from 1955. A brief segment of a sports
interview show featuring these two legends. (5 minutes)
Solid Gold Summer Hits 1988. Syndicated radio program hosted by Bob
Worthington. This was a special edition of "Solid Gold Saturday Night" that was
to air over Memorial Day Weekend of 1988. As the title suggests, this show contains songs
that are associated with summer. Interviews with several artists are featured as well. The
tape also includes national commercial spots for Dr. Pepper. (259 minutes)
CONELRAD DRILL. From
April 1961. CONtrol of ELectronic RADiation.
Remember the little triangles at 640 and 1240 on your AM dial? Most pre-mid-60s radios,
including car radios, had them. In the event of a disaster (the assumed disaster at the
time was a conventional or nuclear attack from the Soviet Union), all AM stations were to switch to either
640 or 1240 kHz, whichever worked best with their normal antenna system. They
operated at low power (a few hundred watts) in a rotating sequence (with each station
transmitting for a few seconds at a time) designed to present enemy bombers with
a large number of unidentifiable carriers on two frequencies that thus couldn't be
used for direction-finding. As part of
CONELRAD, all other non-emergency radio
transmitters--FM stations, TV stations, CB radios, hams, etc.--were to leave
the air during the alert. In late April 1961, there was full-blown test of
this system in the wake of the Bay of Pigs incident. This tape is a sample
of what you would have heard had you tuned in to the drill. The test was staged as if it were an actual CONELRAD Radio
Alert, but it was scheduled far enough in advance to be listed in some newspaper
TV and radio schedules. During the test, all AM stations left the
air. I don't know if FM and TV stations did. Contained on this segment is a brief speech of encouragement by
President Kennedy. The CONELRAD system was replaced by the Emergency Broadcast System
(EBS). (28 minutes)
NPR Report on the Demise of MusicRadio 77 WABC. From 5/10/82. A report
on National Public Radio about the end of WABC's Musicradio format that had occurred
earlier this day. (7 minutes)
"NBC's All Star Parade of Bands - New Year's Eve."
From KGRB - AM 90 NBC Radio - Los Angeles.
A December 31, 1994 recreation of a December 31, 1961 program aired over NBC radio
at that time. The network moved across the country from celebration to celebration
as each time zone reached midnight on New Year's eve 1961. This is a re-creation of
that program by KGRB, the short-lived NBC station in Los Angeles. Much of the
original programming was retrieved and rebroadcast for the 1994 event. Please see
the program log for
the 1994 broadcast, as well as a
letter describing the station
from the program director at the time. (356 minutes, unscoped)
Wolfman Jack and Roger Carroll on Armed Forces Radio. From 12/74 (Wolfman
Jack) and 11/74 (Roger Carroll). Four 24 to 25 minute shows each. Recorded from
original vinyl. Occasional scratches, but pretty good. (197

Programmer's Digest. These are series of audio magazines designed to assist radio stations in programming. Produced from late 1972 to about 1975 (although I have only through 1973), these contain interviews with radio
people, station profiles, retrospective looks, and so forth. What's on

"Skywave Rider: Rock 'n' Roll Radio in the 1960s."
This is "a documentary about the interrelated worlds of Top 40 radio,
the 1960s midwest rock 'n' roll band and ballroom scene, and changing
cultural patterns. It is a first-person account by
Mills of events that occurred between May 1963 and October
1967." It was made August 12, 1999 by Ken Mills and was
distributed on the NPR satellite on September 30, 1999. Mr. Mills has

NPR "Lost and Found
Sounds" segment aired 12/17/99 as part of their "All Things
Considered" program. Bill Hawkins was a black DJ on Cleveland
Radio in the 1950s, and this piece profiles his son, William Alan Taylor,
who returns to Cleveland in an attempt to learn about his father, whom he
never knew. Mr. Taylor has written a play about his father. One
thing Mr. Taylor searches for are airchecks of his father on the radio,
because he never heard his father over the air. None are known to
exist. (23 minutes).

Hear the Monitor Beacon! If you were
born no later than about the late 1950s, you were old enough when Monitor
left the air in 1975 to probably remember it. As soon as you hear the
beacon, you'll say to yourself, "oh yeah, I haven't heard that in long
time!" Not since January of 1975, to be exact, because that is when the last
Monitor broadcast occurred. (Many of these recordings were obtained
from the Monitor Tribute Pages at www.monitorbeacon.net. The host of that site has made many of
these shows, as well as many other Monitor sound clips, available for
download for free. I can't do that here because I do not have the
server space. But I invite you to check monitorbeacon.net to see
what's currently available.) Check here for
what I have.
Coast to Coast with Art Bell. Two shows from September 1998.
Portion of a show from September 18, 1998.

Mr. Bell features an encore appearance by "Single Seven" and a
discussion of spy satellites with Ronald Regier and Daryl Simms.
Monday Night Football opening sequence. With the December 2005
passing of Monday Night Football on ABC, I dug this out of an old collection
of cassette recordings I made as a teenager back in the early '70s.
Not sure of the exact date of this, but I'm certain it's pre-1975.
It's only 50 seconds long (785 kb mp3), so you can hear it right
Power Line. Rock and roll with a religious theme. Rock music
interspersed with the occasional inspirational thought. Hosted by John
Borders. I have four half-hour shows from the early 1970s.

Kennedy and four five-minute shows from early 1971 hosted by Mike Douglas
(the talk show host). These were short programs provided to radio
stations around the country "in the public interest" to promote U.S. Savings
Bonds. The 1971 shows were called the Treasury Department's "new
weekly pop music series." All of these particular shows feature Rick
Nelson as the guest, and in each show he is interviewed and then plays one
(for the 1971 shows) or several (for the 1957 show) of his songs. (approximately

ABC Network News Coverage of the Kennedy
Assassination. A compilation on two LPs produced by ABC News in
the months following the event. (96 minutes)
Bob ("Vernon with a V") Vernon's comedy bits.
From Mr. Vernon: "The Adventures of Buzz have always been my favorite
bits. The original episodes [five are included] ran a minute or more in
length. Originally I used sound effects and pulled people from around
the station into the studio to play the roles. You'll hear [Don] Imus
as Mrs. Wallace and as Arnold Grunge the janitor. Buzz's original
girlfriend (Mary Jane) left the station to become a flight attendant so I
began writing Juggs into more episodes. By '74, with the tighter
format, they were just too long, so I rewrote them, cutting them back to 30
seconds and hired an actress to play the Juggs role. At about the same
time, I began negotiating with WNBC so—with my fingers crossed—I had Juggs
do a bit of a NYC accent. [Five of the revised Buzz episodes] are
included along with a couple of phone bits." (10 minutes)
Armed Forces Radio and Television (AFRTS)
Roger Carroll from 1974. (40 minutes)
Charlie Tuna from 11/79. (16 minutes)

morning program ("Dawnbusters") in Vietnam from December 9, 1968. This is the first 43
minutes of the show, which began at 6 a.m., that day. Excellent quality. (43 minutes,
Armed Forces Network featuring Wolfman
Jack. From August 19, 1975. (45 minutes, unscoped)
"In Search of the Wolf." A special
from the BBC on Wolfman Jack. From 2008. (55 minutes)
NBC News Coverage of the Apollo 11 Moon
Landing. Approximately 24 hours of coverage of the July 1969
landing of Apollo 11 on the moon as recorded off of the NBC station in
Providence, Rhode Island, WJAR-TV, Channel 10. Recording is unscoped
and includes all of the Gulf Oil commercials. The recording is
continuous beginning at 11 a.m. (Eastern time) on July 20 and running to
4:30 a.m. on July 21. The actual setting by Neil Armstrong of his foot
on the moon took place around 10 p.m. on the 20th. The recording then
resumes about 12 noon on the 21st and runs to 6 p.m. Also included is
the July 21, 1969 NBC Nightly News broadcast with Chet Huntley and David
Brinkley ("Good Night, David--Good Night, Chet"). Originally recorded
on 1/4-inch reel tape and transferred by me to mp3 format. The quality
is not bad considering the age and the recording equipment. I believe
the recording was made by simply holding the recorder's microphone up to the
TV's speaker. (1426 minutes, unscoped)
K-Mart in-house radio, "KMRT." From
December 1991 when K-Mart still played tapes throughout the day in its
stores. A tape like this would have been played continuously for 12 to
14 hours per day, 7 days a week. A new tape would be sent to each
store each month. In the mid-1990s, the system changed, and in-store
music arrived via satellite. The cassette system was no longer used.
Because this is a December tape, there's lots of Christmas music plus the
occasional in-house ad. Because the tape had been played many times,
the sound quality is a little worse that it would be if the tape were new,
but it's still quite listenable. (91 minutes)

in late March of that year. (239 minutes)
