Welcome to Charis Music Group!
Charis Music Group welcomes you! Based on our website data,
we are now exceeding 2000 hits a day so we thank you for
visiting! Please write us to let us know what you would
like to see or have added to the site.
First and foremost, we are syndicated radio program junkies.
We love everything Watermark ever put out. Casey Kasem and
Shadoe Stevens with American Top 40, Don Bowman and Bob
Kingsley with American Country Countdown, Murray the K and
Gary Owens with Soundtrack of the 60's, Wink Martindale
with the Elvis Presley Story and specials such as Ringo
Starr's Yellow Submarine, Mick Fleetwood's Fab Fourth and
the Robert W. Morgan specials.
Not to be outdone, Drake-Chenault was also a quality producer.
They produced Mark Elliott with the Weekly Top 30, Charlie
Van Dyke with the Weekly Music Magazine, the Elvis special
and of course Bill Drake with the History of Rock and Roll.
Unfortunately, many of these programs have never been heard
from again. The master tapes have been destroyed, forgotten
and simply lost. On the other hand, vinyl or reel to reel
copies do surface and when they do, they are treasured which
brings us to what we do.
What We Do
We strive to preserve and restore audio such as the programs
listed above. If you read the about
us page you will discover how our services are being
put to use. We have an extensive library and hope to assist
both radio and collectors. We use a very meticulous process
for restoring audio and hope to have some before and after
samples posted SOON.
How You Can Help!
We are always looking to add to our collection and will
gladly buy or help you sell your American Top 40, Casey's
Top 40 or other radio collections. Just use the contact
links to let us know what you have! We are ESPECIALLY looking
for Casey's Top 40, Weekly Music Magazine and Weekly Top
What's on our HOT list?
DRAKE-CHENAULT HISTORY OF COUNTRY MUSIC
For a country music fan, this was the Holy Grail of hard
to find broadcasts. This 52 hour country cousin to the History
of Rock and Roll aired in 1981 or 1982. It was hosted by
Ralph Emery. Like the HRR, the final hour is a time sweep
of all of the country number ones for the charting periods.
MISSING CASEY'S TOP 40 DATES - UPDATED
ONLY MISSING THREE LP SETS!!!! According to Westwood One
personnel, all tapes for CT40 no longer exist. Thus, the
only way to create a tangible record (no pun intended) and
history of the show is from what survived in circulation.
That being said, here are the onlly missing shows.
I am looking for vinyl copies of these final three shows:
1990 (ALL VINYL SETS)
MISSING WEEKLY MUSIC MAGAZINE (UPDATED
This was a great program that only lasted one season with
Charlie Van Dyke as the host. I am looking for THE
FINAL MISSING vinyl copies of these dates:
