Casey Kasem

i have re-discovered casey kasem’s american top 40. i was driving home from my sister’s house recently, and the radio was playing a broadcast of american top 40 circa 1985. apparently my nostalgia for the 80s is shared by program directors who still play the old hits as if they were something new. casey kasem had a voice that was synonymous with my youth, and thanks to the internet i can hear it again. the most recent countdown was a re-broadcast from the weekend of december 8, 1981. the number one song from that weekend? olivia newton john’s physical.
