I always heard the term delayed broadcast.
There were companies dedicated to making airchecks in many cities. My understanding is that they used phone lines and charged by the hour for overlapping acetates between specified times. It was common for ad agencies to give these to the sponsors.
The major labels would also hire them to record their console feed during sessions as a backup.
