Airchecks

In the radio industry, these are generally demo tapes. Airchecks must be of reasonable quality, and content should showcase classic Top-40 stations formats, promotions and personalities.  Often intended to show off the announcer's talents to prospective future employers, etc. As such, they generally don't contain any music, and few jingles. Potential employers do not want to hear music, they want to hear what the announcer sounds like! bar.gif (3285 bytes)
