Buzznet Media Presents: 99! – The Ultimate Radio Format!

A sequel is usually reserved for TV and the Movies.

Like the original, this is SO prophetic! Recorded only three years after the infamous Telecommunications Act of 1996 which chang...

Chris Ingram, WVOS-FM Monticello, NY | June 17, 2010

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...

“Real Country” 1580 AM KCWW Tempe AZ | 1996

We really don’t have much information on this particular aircheck or radio station other than it was owned by legendary Country music singer Buck Owens from 1967 to 1998. Don’t ask where we get some of these obscure airchecks, some of these are from stations that aren’t around anymore and weren’t memorable enough even for basic mentions on the web. We had to do some digging...
