Airchecks

Collecting airchecks is a very popular hobby but for those of you unfamiliar with it, a brief explanation’s in order. To begin with,  airchecks represent NOSTALGIA to the public but in the radio industry, a demonstration recording designed to illustrate the talents of an announcer or disk jockey to a prospective employer or to the general listening public. There are two types of airchecks, UNSCOPED and SCOPED. Unscoped means that all the announcements, musical selections, newscasts and commercials are left intact. Scoped means just the segments in which the announcer or disc jockey are performing.  Some airchecks of older radio programs are highly prized by collectors due to their nostalgia value because (1)  stations may no longer be in existence or in their previous formats (2)they literally  turn yesterday into today. One relives history by way of these airchecks and your OLD favorites come alive again.  Each aircheck is just $6.95  and stations are listed alphabetically. We pay all P&H costs.
