Here’s a little history on a few of my favorite airchecks:
The WLS & CKLW airchecks were recorded from the eastern suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio. All were airchecked on this Lloyd’s alarm clock radio/ cassette player- a fine unit that got great reception!
One evening I was trying to sleep and just started scanning the radio. Suddenly I came across this powerful AM station playing rock music out of Chicago! I immediately grabbed a spare cassette and starting airchecking.
The KFAB tape was a simple, cheap one I bought at Kmart. (Of course I was only 16 and didn’t have much money.) This one was one of the best sounding airchecks I every recorded! (The Lloyd’s radio was used for this one as well.)
