Ron's collection of airchecks

Over the years, I've had the good fortune to have had a cassette deck handy during some fine radio broadcasts, and I got a bunch on tape. (Recently, recording has been straight onto the hard drive, but the spirit is still the same.)

Most of these were taped by me, and have been corrected for noise reduction, pitch, and levels as best as possible. Hope you enjoy them.

If you like stuff like this, be sure to check out www.TwinCitiesRadioAirchecks.com and www.radiotapes.com, two fantastic resources for preserved radio history.
