This Weekend on Casey Kasem’s Top 40 Countdown

Saturday’s 80’s Countdown: OCTOBER 29, 1983
8 am – noon

The finale of the TV show MASH aired in 1983. Remember the swatch? It was introduced in 1983. So was National Lampoon’s’ Vacation movie. There was a lot of musical variety in the fall, with the Top 40 countdown featuring everything from Dolly Parton & Kenny Rogers to Quiet Riot.



Sunday’s 70’s Countdown: NOVEMBER 1, 1975
8 am – 11 am

The beaver became an official symbol of Canada. Mirabel airport opened as a second one for Montreal- it didn’t end up doing very well. Debuting on TV was Saturday Night Live, the Fifth Estate and King of Kensington. In the fall of 1975, we were turning up the radio to the Four Seasons and Neil Sedaka.
