ARSA — THE AIRHEADS RADIO SURVEY ARCHIVE


Not just "reliving the past" but more importantly "preserving the past". Radio is unique in that, unlike other media forms, there is no easy access to old music radio shows. Old movies and TV shows continue to be shown on network or cable TV, and can be rented/purchased on tapes or DVD. Print media like old books, magazines, comics, and newspapers can be purchased from specialty stores or kept in libraries for viewing. But where can one go to obtain and listen to old music radio shows? Aircheck tapes & radio surveys can only be found in the hands of collectors. At some point, most collectors begin to realize that this is more than a hobby and that we are in fact preserving radio history.

—— Gary Pfeifer, 2003
