Saturday on AT40, hear the big songs from this week in 1984! It’s all about music from movies and videos. The themes from “Footloose” and “Against All Odds” are Top Five hits. MTV mainstays Hall & Oates, Cyndi Lauper, Huey Lewis, Culture Club, and Van Halen dominate. First -timer and one-hit-wonder, Nena, is in with “99 Luftballons.” And… just for fun, Weird Al scores with “Eat It!” Enjoy two chances to hear AT40 this Saturday on KIX: from 6 a.m. – 10 a.m. and from 8 p.m. – midnight.
Sunday morning on KIX, Casey Kasem plays back a show that originally aired this week in 1977. The Eagles are fast movers with their new single “Hotel California.” It’s a mixed bag in the Top 20 as Glen Campbell plays alongside Abba, Paul McCartney and Wings, and Atlanta Rhythm Section. While Hall & Oates ruled the roost during the previous week with “Rich Girl,” can they do it again? Enjoy The Countdown, Casey’s stories, and the Long Distance Dedications every Sunday from 9 am – noon, only on KIX.
