Dan's Aircheck Trading Emporium

Uncategorized Material

One-of-a-kind material that doesn't fit anywhere else.  Listed in order of acquisition.

Some is non-radio material.


  1. 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 minutes, scoped)
  2. 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)
  3. 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)
  4. WIXZ/KQV Montage. Of the Pittsburgh stations, from 1/71. (2 minutes)
  5. 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"). (6 minutes)
  6. 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. (236 minutes)
  7. CKLW, a montage from American Airchexx. Features Dave Shafer (sp?) and Terry Knight. (19 minutes)
  8. 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)
  9. 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)
  10. 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)
  11. 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. (46 minutes, Unscoped)

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.

  30. Civil Defense SymbolCONELRAD 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)
  31. 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)

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)  (ALSO SEE ENTRY #86)

  42. NBC Monitor. 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.

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 here!
  45. Power Line. Rock and roll with a religious theme. Rock music interspersed with the occasional inspirational thought. Hosted by John Borders. I have six half-hour shows from the early 1970s and 1995.

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.

  55. 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)

    1. Roger Carroll from 1974. (40 minutes)

  58. removed due to duplication.
  59. "In Search of the Wolf." A special from the BBC on Wolfman Jack. From 2008. (55 minutes)
  60. 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)
  61. 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)
