Saturday on AT40, hear the big songs from this week in 1985. Soap star Jack Wagner was heating up TV and radio with his smash “All I Need.” A couple of Eagles have solo hits: Don Henley with “The Boys of Summer” and Glenn Frey with “The Heat is On.” Robert Plant’s and The Honeydrippers’ only two hits are both in this countdown with “Sea of Love” and “Rockin’ at Midnight.” That’s all good and well, but can anybody top the Queen of Controversy, Madonna, who has been at #1 for a whopping five weeks with “Like A Virgin”? Enjoy two chances to hear AT40 on Saturday on KIX: from 6am – 10am and with an encore presentation from 8pm to midnight.
Sunday morning on KIX, Casey Kasem plays back the favorite tunes from this week in 1978! It’s a mixed bag where Dolly Parton, Queen, The Bee Gees and Styx all live harmoniously in the Top 10 and where we first hear modern standards like “Baby Come Back,” “You’re in My Heart,” and “How Deep is Your Love.” And if you listen to the countdown at the beginning, you’ll hear two versions of the theme from “Close Encounters of The Third Kind” — one by John Williams and the other by Meco. Enjoy The Countdown, Casey’s stories, and the Long Distance Dedications every Sunday from 9am – noon, only on KIX.
