I completely agree that the Hot 100 is the authoritative chart source, and I have said in many posts, that it wouldn't hurt to still be used to this day on AT40. It is truly the ONLY connection of history we still have to the beginnings of "rock 'n' roll". However, I also feel Billboard's tabulation of the Hot 100 has gotten WAY out of hand with the addition of YouTube and such, it is too far different than when it was used for Classic AT40 from 1970-1991.
It's so unregognizable from the original, I bet the young people listening to the show don't even know it's a countdown. They most likely don't even know or care about the concept of a countdown at all. It's become a "rag" of sorts.
This by no means discredits Ryan Seacrest in anyway! He is an amazing air talent, smart businessman and a great human being.
This would be great if it were true, may I ask your knowledge of this? Not to be rude or anything, but do you personally know Mr. Seacrest, if so that's great. If he really wanted to do a show like the original AT40, I'm ready to listen. It shouldn't be hard for Mr. Seacrest to get whatever he wants in media.
