Listening to the AT10 show from 3/8/2008, I just heard a significant LDD. Rob Durkee dedicated Rod Stewart's "Forever Young" to fellow worker Michael Kelly of Mediabase 24/7, the company that compiled the charts for Radio & Records then and now. He had previously been a disc jockey at CKLW in Windsor, Ontario. Michael Kelly had just passed at that time. This is the most famous person I have ever heard request a LDD. Too bad Rob does not frequent this site anymore.

And I am hearing the CT40 from this date in 1994. As for "Gin and Juice" that people were posting about, I'll take the 'take it or leave it' attitude that some people have toward songs. Not a typical rap song that I can't stand but there are better ones out there such as "Shoop" a few songs later. BTW, this is another David Perry hosted show.

It's 3/12/1977 for today. This is the countdown where Billboard made last-minute changes to the survey, affecting Stevie's "I Wish" (from 28 to 32), Elton's "Bite Your Lip" (holds at 28) and Olivia's "Sam" (from 32 to 26).
Ran into something unusual this week, in fact I think it's the first time I've ever experienced this.
After listening to 3/9/74, I moved on to 3/10/84 and Charlie Van Dyke was hosting. Then, came Casey's Top 40 from 3/12/94...David Perry was hosting. Now I have had that happen before. Casey seemed to become a creature of habit and would take many of the same weeks off every year. However, then came American Top 40 from 3/12/94 and Shadoe was off too! David Hall was filling in. I've stopped listening to the 10 years ago shows. So had Casey taken time off more than he did in the early 70's, I could have had a week where every regular host was on vacation through the years.
Now, not knowing who David Hall was I went on a search engine to see if I could find any info out about him. Nothing stood out to me saying THIS IS THE GUY and I don't remember him giving any info about himself on the show. It's possible he did and I just wasn't paying any attention when he did. Anyone have any info or is this him? www.examiner.com/article/r-i-p-david-hall-1954-2012
1. 10/13/1984 (Regular countdown, Stevie Wonder's "I Just Called to Say I Love You" hits No. 1.) 2. 11/11/1972 (Regular countdown, Johnny Nash's "I Can See Clearly Now" spends second week at No. 1) 3. 4/1/1978 (AT40 Goes To The Movies) 4. 7/4/1981 (Top 40 Beatle Hits--Together and Apart) 5. 12/31/1977 (Top 50 Hits of 1977) 6. 1/1/1983 (Top 50 Hits of 1982) In rotation on my iPod Shuffle, which seems to be favoring the 10/13/1984 show.
