The American Top 40: The 70s

Casey Kasem, 1932-2014.

You can now hear Casey Kasem countdown the American Top 40 again in these re-mastered shows. These are the original shows that aired on American radio in the 1970s. These American Top 40 shows were 3 hours long, until October 7 1978, when they became 4 hours long

There are lots of American and Canadian radio stations streaming on the Internet that carry the show each week.

Casey's Countdowns play 24/7 on IHeart Radio-Needs a US IP Address to listen
