I guess the proof that Airchexx.com has been a worthwhile project all these years is in the fact that we’re getting so many original ‘checks from people in the business. A few weeks ago, we heard from Chris Ingram. Perhaps Chris isn’t well known, but his father is considered by many to be the best jock ever. Of course, we’re talking about Dan Ingram. Chris emailed to say: A friend suggested I post an aircheck of myself on this site. She seemed to think that since Dan Ingram is my father, and I’m in the business, too, my work (at WVOS-FM) might be of interest to others… …Here’s a short one from a few weeks ago…runs about a minute.

We received this one by email from Jon London himself, who writes: Hey! I just heard me on KD! Pretty cool….. I didn’t say much though.

Contributor Ray Bozzanca sent this in some time ago. The source recording was obviously made for someone wanting the music only, as the tape was a 40 minute reverse-scope with most of the deejay talk and imaging removed… but what remains of this station’s identity is presented here. This is from a short period in the history of WPAT-FM, which at the time was still an AM/FM simulcast. WPAT had then recently gone soft AC out of a longtime Beautiful Music format, and was programming to New York City proper, from its signal in New Jersey. Later in the 90s, WPAT AM and FM would each get separate Spanish Formats and leave the English language audience permanently. Runs 3:30, Scoped.
Every now and then a new WABC aircheck appears out of the woodwork. From contributor Paul Ford is this brief composite of a day on the air at MusicRadio 77 starting with Harry Harrison in the morning, then moving on to the late, great Ron Lundy, Dan Ingram, Cousin Brucie, Chuck Leonard and even Jay Reynolds! The audio quality is superb, as is the reverb and those great PAMS jingles used in ’72!
