Saturday on AT40, hear the big songs from this week in 1982. It’s the usual 80s suspects in the Top 10: Hall & Oates, Journey, and Olivia Newton-John — with what would become the top song of the decade. For Valentine’s weekend, the Countdown is chock full of love songs by Air Supply, George Benson, and Foreigner. Just for fun, we’ll hear Buckner and Garcia with “Pac Man Fever.” And The J.Geils Band begins a l-o-n-g stay at #1 with “Centerfold.” Enjoy two chances to hear AT40 on KIX this Saturday: from 6am – 10am or during an encore presentation from 8pm – midnight.
Sunday morning on KIX, Casey Kasem plays back a show that originally aired on Valentine’s Day 1976. Paul Simon’s “love” song “50 Ways To Leave Your Lover” was #1 the previous week and hopes to repeat. Just in time for the Valentine’s weekend, the hits are hot and bothered this week — from Donna Summer’s “Love to Love You, Baby” and “You Sexy Thing” by Hot Chocolate to “Love Machine” by The Miracles. Elsewhere in the Countdown, it’s a mixed bag of tunes: the theme from TV hit “S.W.A.T” to The Who with “Squeeze Box” and CW McCall with “Convoy.” Enjoy the Countdown, Casey’s stories, and the Long Distance Dedications… every Sunday from 9am – noon, only on KIX.
