It’s the Original American Top 40 with Casey Kasem featuring hits from this week in 1980 and 1973! Presented by ARS Rescue Rooter. For all your Heating, Cooling, and Plumbing needs. Go to www.arsraleighdurham.com/specials.aspx and see online specials.
Saturday on AT 40, hear the big songs this week in 1980! With only days until Christmas now, good girls and boys are dreaming about these under the tree: the latest albums by Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, Blondie, Pat Benatar, and The Police. The loss of John Lennon is only a couple of weeks old, and John’s “Just Like Starting Over” continues to rise. Kenny Rogers’ “Lady” has spent an astounding five weeks at #1! Can he go another round? Classic 80s AT 40 on KIX, Saturday 6-10am, with an encore presentation from 8 to midnight.
Sunday morning on KIX, Casey Kasem plays back the favorite tunes this week in 1973! Santa’s list was full of 8-track tapes, albums, and 45s by these artists: The Carpenters are on “Top of The World” and near the top of the heap, Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” album was just out in October and in the top five, and the top ten is rounded out nicely with The Staple Singers, Chicago, and Jim Croce, but they’re up against a worthy contender: Charlie Rich’s “The Most Beautiful Girl”! The Countdown, Casey’s stories, and the Long Distance Dedications, every Sunday from 9-noon, only on KIX!
