From WODC's Mike Eiland:
Another AT40 Sunday Night Special! A Tribute To The King Of The Countdown hosted by Mike Kasem and Kerri Kasem! 7:00PM to 9:00PM! This heartfelt presentation features clips and songs from the very first show, stories about how Casey Kasem came to Mike and Kerri's elementary school and did the voice of Shaggy for their classmates (along with a clip from Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?) and many other heartwarming tales of their dad. There's lots of music that spans the entire run of Casey's countdown shows, which include American Top 10 and American Top 20!

I haven't listened to it yet.....when I have some free time. like I said before, the AT40 classic channel audio was tolerable. Those broadcasters and their audio processing "boxes" tend to ruin a decent recording and why I like the original program audio. That's not to say there isn't processing on the original program audio, but what happens is when have processing on top of processing, like going down multiple tape generations, the quality degrades, even in the digital work. In the quest for sounding loud on a clock radio, broadcasters have sacrifice quality in dynamic range (those peaks and valleys in the wave form) which is natural in audio. I put the tribute audio I recorded into a wav editor and it's on big rectangle. That's what happened with a multiband brick wall limiter. It's a brick wall, NO audio gets about that point for level. It makes it louder, but at the loss of dynamics.
Agreed about the over processing of today's audio. Once you remove all the dynamics in a song you're left with moosh.
I went to ITunes hoping to purchase "Pilot of the Airwaves" but its all re-recorded versions, not the original. I hate it when they don't have the song I want when I go to buy it. I found the original CD on Amazon selling for $19. No thanks.
