AT40 Memorial Day Special Programming
Join us this Memorial Day from 1pm to 8pm for two American Top 40 Specials with the legendary Casey Kasem!
From 1pm to 4pm is “The Top 40 Acts of the 1970s, So Far,” which originally aired in 1974. This 3-hour special highlights the top acts from the first 4 ½ years of the decade, including hits from Paul McCartney, Diana Ross, Elton John, The Jackson 5 and Stevie Wonder to name a few.
Then from 4pm to 8pm, Program director Ken Martin of WTOJ in Watertown, New York, has taken dozens of AT40 shows and assembled “#1 Hits of the 1980s, Part 1.” This 4-hour show begins with January 1980 and continues through September 1982, while featuring Casey’s different vocal inflections over the years.
