Contributor Ray Bozzanca sent in something that, while not an ‘aircheck’, probably has some historic significance.
The VM website (listed below) states: ““A V-M Product” and “The Voice of Music” are the brand names of quality audio products (record players, tape recorders, tube and solid state amplifiers, consoles) manufactured from 1944 until 1977 by the V-M Corporation of Benton Harbor, Michigan, USA”

Well, that gives us some insight. Meanwhile, Bozzanca writes:

I found a site on the company that made my first reel to reel tape recorder, a VM voice of music. But in talking about old browsers being able to work, they have something at the bottom of the web page about java and or clicking on a link for older browsers to work. Check it out.Your audience may not be worth it to correct or use but it gives insight!


I actually have a demo tape that I kept that came with the tape recorder from 1961 that VM made. Hehehhe about 14 minutes, maybe I encode it for you to hear for kicks!
The recorder is long gone in the waste or trash!

I found it an interesting piece of history. Perhaps someone else out there remembers VM “The Voice Of Music” Reel-to-Reel tape company.
