Here is the 90 minute tape from R&R celebrating it’s first fifteen years covering radio. For me this audio is, among other things, full of examples of what went wrong, or right, with Top 40 radio. Many other formats are also featured.
Radio & Records (R&R) was a trade publication providing news and airplay information for the radio and music industries. It originally started out as an independent trade from 1973 to 2006 until VNU Media, the parent company of Billboard, took over in 2006, up until its final issue in 2009.
