Casey Kasem, "The man who taught the world how to count to 40..backwards" hosted American Top 40 from its inauguration in 1970 until 1988. The nationally syndicated pop music countdown show became very famous quickly and was heard across America each week. Casey Kasem became an icon for the radio show countdown.
On PopRadio 77, The Classic Countdown is a tribute each week to the legend himself, Casey Kasem (1932-2014). Every Saturday it is a look back at the Top 40 from a selected week from the 60's, 70's, or 80's. We do it the same way that Casey did way back when! We start at Number 40...and we close out with Number 1 just before 6pm.
The PopRadio 77 Classic Countdown follows the format started by the legend himself, Casey Kasem. It starts at number 40, and 1-by-1 it gets closer and closer to the song at the top of the charts.
