660 New York WNBC Time MachineI’m experimenting with creating a premium content “Pay Now” link, so you’ll see a link to pay for the unscoped version.  Paying for unscoped will help this website evolve into a site where visitors can hear the unscoped versions of our airchecks.  Try it.  Donations appreciated.

Courtesy of Contributor Steven Green, we have another great TIME MACHINE aircheck to present. Apparently this hasn’t been posted anywhere else, so enjoy!
Recorded in January of the final year of WNBC, this virgin aircheck features the great Dan Taylor. Dan is my personal favorite. Smooth as glass, as great with his one-liners as Dan Ingram was
on WABC in it’s heyday!

This starts off with a promo voiced by our good friend, former WNBC PD Dale Parsons. There’s lots of Dale all over this aircheck! If some of this sounds familiar, that’s because a portion was heard at the end of the Dale Parsons production, “66 Years of WNBC” played on the final day of WNBC as a radio station!  And where did Steven Green get this?  He said it was sent to him back in 2006 and he never released the full aircheck.  Till now!  So, I’m pretty sure that this is the copy used by Dale to splice into his production.  I do not know who had the original copy that was sent to Steven Green, but when I find out, I’ll be sure to credit him (or her) with recording it.  The audio quality is pristine, sounds just like it did when it first aired.

The best part of this is, you can hear this one both scoped, and unscoped. I’ll post the scoped version when I finish today. This will also become another of our YouTube videos – you can check out the whole channel HERE. Look for Airchexx Classic Radio on YouTube!
