Seeing "America's Top 10" on YouTube brought back such nice memories for me of the now-retired Casey Kasem
With yesterday having been the last time Casey Kasem hosted his "American Top 20/10" radio shows (I heard his final "American Top 10" in parts-including his final remarks-on SUNNY 103.3 from 6 to 9 a.m), I have been jonesing on his "American Top 40-The '70s" online (His special of the Top 40 Girls {songs-of which Debbie Reynolds' "Tammy" was no. 1} that was rerun last Saturday was one of the first of such episodes I listened to back in 1977) and have been watching some of his "America's Top 10" on YouTube. In fact, there was a whole program for the week ending May 1, 1983, which included commercials that aired on WNEW in New York, that I saw straight through that revealed Michael Jackson's "Beat It" and "Thriller" on the No. 1 Pop and Album charts, respectively. (R.I.P. King of Pop) It also showed videos of "Der Kommisar" by After the Fire, "Rio" by Duran Duran, and "You Are" by Lionel Richie. The trivia question asked was "What act in the Rock Era that hit the Top 10 had the most members?" The answer was revealed to be John Williams' London Symphony Orchestra with the "Star Wars Main Title Theme". The members numbered 96. As you can read here, I'm getting nostalgic for Casey who's been a part of my life for such a long time. He's had such a nice voice and compelling presence during all my years of growing up. All I'd like to say now is, I'm glad you've kept your feet on that ground and reached for the stars for much of your life, Mr. Kasem! Have a nice retirement.
