This Weekend on Casey Kasem’s Top 40 Countdown

Saturday’s 80’s Countdown: AUGUST 16, 1980
8 am – noon

Terry Fox started his Marathon of Hope journey. O Canada became our official national anthem. We started the year with Joe Clark as Prime Minister and ended the year with Pierre Trudeau (again). Quebec votes against separation in the 1980 referendum and the Top 40 had the Rolling Stones and Genesis in it.



Sunday’s 70’s Countdown: AUGUST 9, 1975
8 am – 11 am

1975 was a great year for movies, with Jaws, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest and The Rocky Horror Picture Show being released. On TV, we were watching The Jeffersons, All in the Family, Maude and Happy Days. And the radio was filled with great classics by K C and the Sunshine Band and War.
