COUNTRY is now the most popular music format in this great country of ours. Back in the 80's and 90's POP music was. In the mid 80's, if you listened to Casey Kasem count down the hits in Columbus, I was a WNCI DJ then, who played the American Top 40 show off vinyl albums until they pressed the shows onto CD around 1990. Below: I've pulled some shows from my collection at home to show you how they looked.
The biggest challenge was playing the proper cut, so the countdown played in order. The sales dept thought the most important part was playing the commercials in the proper order....haha. Casey Kasem made it entertaining each week. I've always been a music/entertainment lover, so playing that countdown show was a privilege.
