This Weekend on Casey Kasem’s Top 40 Countdown

Saturday’s 80’s Countdown: AUGUST 4, 1984
8 am – noon

1984 was the year Prince Harry, Mark Zuckerberg, Trevor Noah and LeBron James were born. Big movies that came out in 1984 included Ghostbusters, The Terminator and Beverly Hills Cop. Michael Jackson was burned filming a Pepsi commercial. In the middle of the summer of 1984, Casey’s Top 40 countdown included songs by Cyndi Lauper and ZZ Top.

 

 

Sunday’s 70’s Countdown: JULY 26, 1975
8 am – 11 am

In 1975 you could make decent interest with a bank account, but you’d also pay more for loans as the annual inflation rate in Canada was just over 10%. The Vietnam war finally ended; Microsoft was founded and we were introduced to disposable razors for the first time. War and the Bee Gees were two of the musical artists featured in Casey’s countdown from this week in 1975.
