Saturday on American Top 40, hear a show from this week in 1981! John Lennon, who we lost in December 1980, is very top of mind and has two songs in the Top 20. The movie ”9 to 5” is a box office hit and its star, Dolly Parton, scores with the movie’s theme song. Local favorite Delbert McClinton is on the charts with “Giving It Up for Your Love.” All that, plus Kool and the Gang’s “Celebration,” Lennon’s “Just Like Staring Over,” and Blondie’s “The Tide Is High” are the Top Three songs this week… who will end up at #1? Enjoy two chances to hear American Top 40 on KIX 102 FM on Saturday: from 6 a.m. – 10 a.m. and from 8 p.m. – midnight.
Sunday morning on KIX 102 FM, Casey Kasem hosts an American Top 40 show that originally aired during this week in 1978. This was the Year of The Bee Gees, and the brothers have three songs in the Top Ten. It’s also the first time we heard Queen’s sports arena anthem “We Will Rock You/We Are The Champions.” You’ll hear a song about space aliens, “Come Sail Away” by Styx, and a tune for the gravitationally challenged, “Short People” by Randy Newman. ”Baby Come Back” by Player is looking strong, having held the #1 spot for the past two weeks. Will it again claim the #1 spot? Listen to The Countdown, Casey’s stories, and the Long Distance Dedications every Sunday from 9 a.m. – noon, only on KIX 102 FM.
