Classic American Top 40s


StormSurge

Recommended Posts

I just learned about this a couple of weeks ago and I've been practically listening non-stop ever since.

iHeart Radio has a dedicated channel that only plays classic Casey Kasem Top 40 countdowns from the 70s & 80s. It's a crazy time machine. 

 

I listen to lots of 80s stations (SiriusXM, Slacker, etc.) & I've heard songs on this that I haven't heard since they were originally released. I can't recommend it enough.

You're welcome!

 

The Sirius/XM ones are just the MTV VJs doing a countdown. Still cool but not as cool as hearing the original Casey Kasem ones (which Sirius used to play).

 

However, I've noticed a couple of repeats. You would think they have enough material to not have to repay the same weeks so frequently.

This was the same with Sirius/XM back when they aired them.............

I found out that these are "remastered" from the originals, so they might not have all of them done. Thats why they repeat some of them. But at least they run a 70's one then 80's and then back to 70's........
