I WILL and DO delete inappropriate comments in the admin area. so save yourself the trouble and keep our converstations relative to the aircheck you’re commenting on.
Q: Do I need a broadband connection to listen?
A: Most of our archived airchecks encoded prior to 2006 were made to accomodate dialup users. Given the widespread use of broadband, and our desire to provide the highest quality recordings which sound as closely as possible to the original broadcast, a broadband connection is highly recommended, especially for all airchecks posted from January 2007 to present.

Q: Can I link one of your airchecks to my website?
A: You may link to the post link on this site. The post link is the link contained in the title of the aircheck presentation. Please do not link to the actual audio file.
Q: Why are all of your airchecks ‘scoped’?
A: Current copyright rules regarding the streaming of music prohibit us from presenting full-lenth airchecks. We do not posess a music license, therefore, all of our material is telescoped. That is to say, the music and ‘offending’ copyrighted material removed from each recording prior to posting on airchexx.com. We apologize for this inconvenience. If, at some future time, rules regarding the streaming of full length songs are relaxed, or we are able to pay royalty fees, we shall begin posting full length airchecks.
