Archiving a Classic: Bootleg Top 40, 1971 – Part 1


Donated within the past year, this came from a vynl pressing done decades ago as a promotional item within radio circles. It has posted before, but this is by far the best, studio quality recording of this montage of radio stations I’ve ever heard. From what I’m told, this was a four part archive, on two records. I’m posting this without comment as there really is no need to – the historic and entertaining nature of this speaks for itself.

This is what it was all about. Top 40 radio from 1971 and it was all on AM!

Aircheck #1,390

    Great vintage 1970’s vinyl aircheck ! This aircheck was originally a 12″ LP (1) sided.
    Too bad it was never longer (time).

    What a great quality aircheck this is. Must have been taken before the xmitter; I don’t think it would pass those hi’s. In all my years in the biz I never heard Bootleg Vol 1, Bootleg 2 was passed around quite a bit but usually several generations down. Thx Steve!
