The show material for most, if not all, of these countdowns were written by staff headed by a man named Pat Shields. Shields has recently passed away from natural causes at his Los Angeles home. Per tonight's Billboard Country Update, he spent 37 years as Bob Kingsley's head writer, retiring in 2011.
Yes, this weekend's broadcast edition of ACC rewind is the one that was erroneously online last Monday for several hours: from 5/19/2001. Looks it's established now, every hour on the hour and about the half-hour marks, there're promos identifying the year of the chart only as in "... this week in a (particular year.)" Unlike Premier's AT40, still no exact weekending Saturday chart date, only the year.

This weekend broadcast edition of ACC Rewind is from JUN-4-2005. And nobody’s mistake-free. Have to listen to it again, I think at the end of #21 (“PICKIN’ WILDFLOWERS”-Keith Anderson) Bob said the song is up from last week’s #24. It actually climbed from #23.
Despite it is mentioned on ct40.com page the ACC Rewind is 2005, the podcast of the ACC Rewind is still the one from 1997 , while the current show podcast is already June 07, 2015 ( by a sub host).
IMHO, again they have pushed the wrong botton on CT40.com
Sometimes they do take a while before eventually posting the right podcast later on this morning.
I don't think we ever got to hear the 5/19/01 podcast at Bob's site. For that entire week the 2001 playlist was posted, but when you actually clicked to listen the previous week's 1991 show was played. This continued until both the on-air and podcast versions switched to 1997.
And at this point, we are still hearing the 1989 jingle package with regards to the June 13, 1992 show. Not sure when it was changed to another jingle package later on this year or so...
AT40's own "1989" jingle package (well, theme package anyway - the jingles, technically, stayed the same) changed there a few weeks after this point (changed on July 4 if I remember reading correctly). Just for comparison's sake...
