Welcome to "Free Audio" we all want free stuff right?

Well this is just a page for free audio to download. This page will feature Top Hour ID's, Scoped Airchecks, Sweepers, parts of stunts, etc. I have tons of audio most of which is not long enough to go into my Airchecks Collection just bits and pieces of radio stations I have on tape but I still need to do something with it so I decided to load it all up here all for free.

Back to the main Jason Smith Airchecks Page


Right now I am showcasing CURRENT AM music radio stations (in scoped aircheck form), it doesn't matter if its local or 24/7 satellite fed Hip Hop or Oldies or Black Gospel or country or adult standards. If you have a AM music radio station in your town, roll some tape and send it to me to showcase right here on 'Free Audio' from Jason Smith's Airchecks! E-mail me at. jason@thehotfm.net, use sendspace.com as the way to send me those Airchecks.


AM Music Radio update:
After hearing the news today that Radio Disney is selling it's remaining stations we still remain hopeful that AM music radio will continue for years going forward. Contrary to what the skeptics say AM radio is still viable if the owners want it to be for listeners young and old alike.

During the turn of the millennium radio stations was in a fight with congress and judges over royalties for streaming recorded music over the internet, stemming from the Napster file-sharing case. Many radio stations across the US and around the world was ordered to end streaming unless they paid the big bucks to record labels and voice over unions. This battle still being fought today as many stations still have not resumed streaming over the internet or is doing limited streaming (cutting off commercials or not streaming some music) and only streaming local sporting events etc. This was the recorded message you heard if you went to Jacksonville's Sports Talk "930 The Fox" streaming audio page in 2001, it features former morning host David Lamm who now works for 1010XL.

640 WGST Kim "The Kimmer" Peterson First Segment Pat Tillman's Death 4-22-04 (aprox size 9.84 MB)
Back in its heyday 640 WGST was the best you could get as a local talk radio station. From 1993 to 2000 WGST was simulcast on 105.7 FM it gave WGST a solid FM signal especially at night when the AM station would power down to 1000 watts at night barely reaching outside the perimeter. Tom Hughes anchored the morning drive all news show, and Kim "The Kimmer" Peterson headed up the most popular afternoon local talk show. Unfortunately in 2007 in what would be the first on a long chain of firing-bloodbaths at all Clear Channel stations across the country, everyone at WGST was fired and replaced with syndicated talk 24/7. Tom Hughes was replaced with "The Wall Street Journal This Morning" (a one hour show that repeated all morning,) Danny Schaffer's mid morning show was replaced with 700 WLW's Mike McConnell, The Kimmer's afternoon show was replaced with syndicated money show Dave Ramsey. Rush Limbaugh would stay in early afternoons as well as Coast to Coast AM overnights. This is the first segment of the Kimmer's Show from 2004 the day after ex NFL player Pat Tillman was killed by friendly fire in the war on terror.

At this time WGST was looking for more "LOCAL" on air talent and was doing live auditions for a new Sunday evening talk show called "Sunday Night Live with _____" that would air from 7pm to 9pm on 640 WGST. One of those that auditioned was David Paul who worked throughout the 80s and early 90s at cross-town 750 WSB-AM.  Unfortunately this audition didn't go so well as within 30 seconds into the show you can hear Mr. Paul get nervous and leave the studio, after he walked out the station aired the best of "The Weekend With Mike McConnell."

This is the farewell from long time news man Tom Hughes on 640 WGST. On November 21, 2006 just two days before thanksgiving the entire local staff of 640 WGST was fired. As stated above all local news/talk programming would be replaced with syndicated talk, basically running the station on the cheap. There was one last ditch effort to regain listeners by bringing back some local talk in morning and afternoon drive before ditching the news/talk programming altogether in 2012 in favor of a satellite fed Spanish sports talk network.

This was Clear Channel's attempt to launch an FM hot talk format in Atlanta after 2 years of all 80's music as The 80's Channel 105.3 WMAX The Max. The FM talk format only lasted for about 8 months before the launch of Viva 105.3; Spanish Top 40 later that same year after a 10 hour stunt Viva was born just after 10pm.

Then after The Regular Guys was fired from 96 Rock Bob and Tom moved to that station bringing back the original female targeted morning show The MJ Morning Show that had been on the station when it was all 1980's Oldies. 96 Rock afternoon guys Dick and Justice did a short one week stunt from 8pm to 10pm before deciding to go with a full program simulcast of WGST with local sports show Randy Cross from 7pm to 10pm,  Phil at 10pm and coast at 1am. The weekend music was still the 80's oldies format before changing to a gold intensive Alternative format with a few currents thrown in. At first the weekend music was only confined to Saturday nights from 6pm and all day Sunday to 1am Monday with best of bob and tom Saturday morning a live Saturday Scott Ferrell show and best of Schnitt before dumping the Saturday talk for more music on the weekends.

Y106.7 WYAY Scoped Aircheck xx-xx-99 (aprox size 5 MB)
This is a scoped aircheck of "Hit Country Y106.7" from 1999. The station would re-launch the following year as "Eagle 106.7" with a gold based Country format. The station would undergo several ownership changes from ABC Radio to Citadel to Cumulus, in 2007 the station would flip from country to a 24/7 satellite Oldies format airing Scott Shannon's "True Oldies Channel" then ditching the satellite feed for local play list with more of a 70's and 80's based "classic hits" format before flipping to it's all news format under the Cumulus ownership in 2012.


True Oldies 106.7 WYAY-FM Sweep 2008 (aprox size 2.15 MB)
This is a listener soundbyte sweep that aired on the station just after the launch of True Oldies 106.7, this is a direct from studio recording of the sweep. This station had been Country as Eagle 106.7 but after a nascar race in late winter of 2008 the station flipped formats to a satellite driven oldies format hosted by Scott Shannon who also had Atlanta ties as he was once program director of 790 WQXI in the late 1970's. The True Oldies Channel did have one local DJ shift in the afternoons from 4pm to 7pm with rotating DJ's one of those DJ's was the late 'Boomer'. Morning drive was the syndicated Imus in the Morning program. Towards the end of True Oldies Spiff Carner from the Randy and Spiff morning show also DJ'ed afternoons with Fred Brooks. Randy was still working morning drive at cross town Clear Channel talker 640 WGST before leaving that job to rejoin Spiff for morning drive on 106.7. The station dropped the True Oldies Network in favor of a local playlist and DJ's in 2010, that move would take 106.7 in to a ratings nose dive, Randy and Spiff where fired after Cumulus bought the station from Citadel then the station would flip formats shortly after to a spoken word format as "All News 106.7." One rumor that was spinning around town was that Cumulus had no intention of keeping the oldies format on the air and was wanting to launch a all news station in Atlanta from day one when they was buying out Citadel. The station has never regained the ratings as when it was still with the  "True Oldies" Network it as only been hovering at about a 1 share since its launch of "All News." At its height True Oldies was in 10th place in overall ratings in Atlanta with a 3.7 to a 4 share. Click Here for a copy of the ratings in Atlanta in 2009 and look for WYAY-FM.

Even though the station dropped the WGST simulcast, Mix 105.7 would continue to air Coast to Coast AM with Art Bell until his retirement in January 2003 live from 1am to 5am. shortly after when Cox Media killed off Fox 97 Clear Channel flipped formats to Oldies as Cool 105.7 in less than two months. At this time as you will hear in this clip Mix was also simulcasting on the Southside signal 96.7 WXVV in Peachtree City which had been Rhythmic CHR as "Wild 96.7" shortly thereafter 96.7 would become Alternative Rock as "the buzz" in April 2002. Side note about Mix 105.7, they once aired a AAA show called The Adventure and at times would even air all day on Sundays which CBS would launch Dave FM just three years later at 92.9 in 2004.

99x WNNX Jan. 1994 (Thrift Shop Find) (aprox size 2 MB)
This is a rare aircheck of 99x' early days before the morning x would begin, This tape was found in a box full of other random cassette's at a local thrift. The quality isn't the best and the person who was recording this was obviously more into the music rather than what was being said by the DJ hence the abrupt cut after the DJ starts talking but a good bit was left intact and is continuous. Sean Demery held mornings until Barnes and Jimmy would join Leslie, and Sean would move to afternoons.


99x W255CJ Top Hour, as 99x returns to the air 12-22-18 (aprox size 500 KB)
As the drama unfolded for a better part of this past decade between Gradick Communications and Cumulus Media over allegations of interference between Gradick's WWGA (98.9) and Cumulus' W255CJ (98.9) translator for 99x. The FCC granted a temporary STA (Special Temporary Authority) to resume operations with reduced power output and a larger null towards the west (the direction of WWGA-FM 98.9 in Carrollton.)  As you will hear the signal is much weaker than before, time will tell with this weaker and directional null'ed signal will satisfy Gradick in the long run.

96.5 WYNF-FM "The Buzz" Sign on 9-7-03 10am (aprox size 3.51 MB)
This is the sign on of "96.5 The Buzz" from September 7th, 2003, after dumping the FM Hot Talk format as Real Radio 96.5, and after a weekend stunt of show tunes on Monday shortly after the Bubba The Love Sponge show aired (which would stay on as the stations morning show until the Janet Jackson halftime show fiasco then Clear Channel would fire Bubba in early 2004 making way for all voice track 24/7 as the rest of the station would be under the Buzz name.) The station launched a Pop Based Alternative format as 96.5 The Buzz. Lex and Terry also would survive the flip as the show would move to late nights on sister classic rock station Q106 WQBZ that would only last about a year before Lex and Terry was dropped from the marked entirely. The stations former line up under the "Radio Radio 96.5" name was, Bubba the Love Sponge 6am to 10am, The Monsters of the Midday 10am to 3pm, The Phillips Phile 3pm to 7pm, Drew Garabo 7pm to 11pm (Drew would move to overnights with music airing between the segments as Lex and Terry would take the 7pm to 11pm shift after cumulus took over US Broadcasting and flip Rock 92.3 to Urban as Blazin 92.3 in the summer of 2003.) While it was Real Radio 96.5 the station would air a blend of new and classic mainly 90's based alternative on the overnights and weekends. The Monsters, Phillips and Drew shows all orientated from Clear Channel's Real Radio 104.1 WTKS in orlando, Only Bubba and Lex and Terry where the only non 104.1 WTKS shows that aired on the station.

We travel east of Charlotte to the small town of Albemarle to visit a small radio station playing Cumulus Media's Oldies Radio satellite feed however it does have a great jingle package to give the station a unique sound.

980 WEGO 3-5-16 (aprox. size 7 MB)
Another great aircheck and a survival story to go along with it. Noah who sent this to us tells us that the original station WTOB 1380 AM (listed above) had been sold and the station flipped to a Hispanic format. However the staff of WTOB wasn't going to just go off quietly into the sunset. After playing musical chairs with the brand they finally landed on their new permanent home at 980 WEGO. Still utilizing the WTOB brand as you will hear in this aircheck.
