Saturday on AT40 it’s the big songs this week 1986, with the King of The Countdown: Casey Kasem! If there was a shortage of mascara and Aqua Net in ’86 it may have been because of Big Hair rockers Bon Jovi on the charts with “You Give Love A Bad Name”…The Made-For-MTV Robert Palmer, Human League, and Madonna are all dressed up and sounding sharp in the top five..and rockers Boston appear to be heading for #1 with their power ballad “Amanda”. The songs you know and love, some One Hit Wonders, and surprises too…Back to the 80s, every Saturday 6-10 am, with an encore presentation 8-midnight on KIX.
Sunday morning on AT40, Casey Kasem plays back the hottest songs this week 1974! Once again, Elton John is in the countdown twice, with his “The Bitch is Back”, and a duet with John Lennon “Whatever Gets You Thru The Night”… The Top Ten is a mixed bag with some country (Mac Davis), rock (Bad Company), and jazz (Carole King)… BONUS: Just outside the Top Ten a song about our medium: “Life is a Rock (But The Radio Rolled Me)”!
The countdown, Casey’s stories, and the Long Distance dedications…every Sunday 9-noon, only on KIX.
