Saturday on AT40, hear the big songs from this week in 1981. They have a real country flavor with Eddie Rabbitt, Dolly Parton, and Delbert McClinton in the Top 10. A perennial holiday favorite by Dan Fogelberg, “Same Auld Lang Syne,” makes its first chart appearance. Blondie scores with two songs in the Top 20: “The Tide is High” and “Rapture.” And… John Lennon does the same with “Woman” and “Just Like Starting Over.” Early in the Countdown, rockers will enjoy the inclusion of AC/DC’s “Back in Black” and The Outlaws’ “Ghost Riders in the Sky.” Enjoy two chances to hear AT40 this Saturday on KIX: from 6am – 10am and an encore presentation from 8pm to midnight.
Sunday morning on KIX, Casey Kasem plays back a show that originally aired this week in 1977. Barbra Streisand is on the big screen in “A Star is Born” and has a hit with the movie’s theme song. TV’s David Soul from “Starsky and Hutch” sings “Don’t Give Up On Us” and it’s really good! This is also the first time we hear modern-day classics like “Dancing Queen,” “Fly Like An Eagle,” “Night Moves,” and “New Kid in Town” — which is a fast mover for The Eagles and on its way to #1! Enjoy the Countdown, Casey’s stories, and the Long Distance Dedications every Sunday from 9am – noon… only on KIX 102.9FM!
