This weekend’s Classic American Top 40 shows are presented by Newcomb and Company: Where your comfort is our business.
Saturday on AT40, hear the big songs from this week in 1983. You want quirky songs? We’ve got ’em right here! Some of this week’s chart-toppers are “She Blinded Me with Science” by Thomas Dolby, “Der Kommissar” by After the Fire, and “Mr. Roboto” by Styx. It’s the first time we are hearing “Little Red Corvette,” “Flashdance,” and “Rio.” Of course, this is the Golden Age of MTV, so all these tunes have neat videos! Plus, Michael Jackson’s “Beat It” and David Bowie’s “Let’s Dance” are primed to take the Top Spot. Who will prevail? Enjoy two chances to hear AT40 on KIX this Saturday: from 6 a.m. to 10 a.m. and from 8 p.m. to midnight.
Sunday morning on KIX, Casey Kasem hosts an American Top 40 show that originally aired during this week in 1972. R&B rules the Top 10 with The Chi-Lites, Staple Singers, Roberta Flack, and Al Green. Cat Stevens turns an old hymn, “Morning Has Broken,” into a hit song. And Sammy Davis has a rare appearance on the charts with “Candy Man.” There’s good rockin’ with The Stones’ “Tumbling Dice” and Commander Cody’s “Hot Rod Lincoln!” Enjoy The Countdown, Casey’s stories, and the Long Distance Dedications every Sunday from 9 a.m. to noon, only on KIX.
