This blog will cover mostly radio and media . I plan to house interesting clips ( airchecks) from radio stations many of which I recorded on a 4 track reel to reel tape deck starting in the 1970’s and beyond. There are also air checks that I have rescued from mildew and mold as they were languishing in second hand or antique shops. The Radio London air check is an example and it’s from a time well before I began recording anything. I will add some context and information about each entry. Site is strictly non profit and dedicated to preserving radio broadcasts from the past.
Most of the radio stations featured had a progressive free form or AOR format but there’s also some classic rock and top 40/Oldies content. I will occasionally highlight overlooked musical gems and cover other media and music related topics.
Also featuring webcasts and radio station for a current day iteration of the old free form format.
This blog and the radio station are works in progress that hopefully will evolve and improve as time passes.
Check out the radio related pictures I have saved below. Will add them every now and then I have a large magazine collection and have just started to load some pictures from them but it will take me a long time to go through those and find the radio related content.
A note to announcers who’s work is posted here: I have uploaded these clips for historical and archival purposes only and if you do not want your work posted here please let me know and I will remove it.
