About Us

The Top 40 Hall of Fame and Radio Museum is housed in the historic studios of WFLI in Chattanooga, TN, created  to document, preserve and honor the disc jockeys and stations that shaped American Top 40 Radio.

Our Mission

The Top 40 Radio Museum & Hall of Fame documents, preserves, and honors the disc jockeys and radio stations that shaped the history of American Top 40 radio from the 1950’s to the 1980’s.

Our Vision

The Top 40 Radio Museum & Hall of Fame believes that communities can unite around the universal language of music and song. Our vision is to create a space for the community to gather and fellowship as it explores the history of American radio and its relevance to music today.
