Welcome to Charis Music Group!
Charis Music Group welcomes you! Based on our website data, we are getting almost 1000 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 30 broadcasts!!!

What's on our HOT list?

DRAKE-CHENAULT HISTORY OF COUNTRY MUSIC
For a country music fan, this has become the Holy Grail of hard to find broadcasts. This 52 hour country cousin to the History of Rock and Roll aired in either 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. Surely somebody out there has this program?

MISSING CASEY'S TOP 40 DATES - UPDATED (UPDATED 2-18-2014)
For those of you who have asked, I finally went through my original vinyl and CD sets to inventory what was present and find where the holes are. 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 will be through what survived in circulation. That being said, here is what I know to be missing.

I am looking for vinyl copies or CDs of these dates:

1990
2-10-90
3-24-90
5-5-90
5-12-90
5-19-90

MISSING WEEKLY MUSIC MAGAZINE (UPDATED 2-18-2014)
