This weeks show will be from March 5, 1988. I did something a little different in this show. I recorded part 2 (Song #'s 27-14) first, then part 1 (#40-28) and part 3 (#13-1). The first taping session from part 1 and 2 was done the other night, but after I intro'd the #40 song I paused the recording and never resumed it later until I started part 2. S*** happens, when you are rushing around. So I recorded part 1 and part 3 the next night. Also I was not feeling well (allergies) the first night. Usually, when I do these sessions over three days, if I can so the production will be better. -- In this show will be a brief Davy Jones tribute which was squeezed in the production hours after I learned of his death. Lots of extended plays (especially in the second part) as this show times out at 3 hours and 11 mintues.
Pandy, is the only way you can listen to this show is live at the website? You don't archive your shows like Ron Gerber does with Crap From The Past?
. I may consider uploading the shows on The Internet Archive or on my 4-shared account. I do have an archive of all my shows on CD. Also an archived show can be listened to on my website any time at www.theoldiescollection.com which are updated on Saturday's.
Guess What? - Another Oldies Collection Top 40 show for March 13, 1971 is waiting in the wings for Sunday's Broadcast. At 9 a.m. and around 4:25 p.m. Eastern DAYLIGHT time. The running time will be 2 hours and 44 minutes. We have four extra songs on the show and a double sided hit and three versions of the same song. All you AT40 buffs, I am starting to throw in a "little extra" soundbyte from the AT shows, can you guess?
Sorry for being sooo late on this, been really busy. Our next show will be from March 20, 1965. In this show will be 10 extra songs that are below the top 40 and will make it's debut in a few weeks. Also on Sunday I will be experimenting broadcasting at 96k-MP3 Pro instead of our 56k stereo. If you hear the show and noticed better sound quality, let me know. With all the extras you figured it would run 3 hours, but it landed at 2 hours and 26 minutes.
I cannot believe that 25 shows have past already. Now, I did a show from March 28, 1970. I know everyone likes a show prior to AT40's debut date, so here it is. This past few days I have been under the weather, so my voice was not that good, especially in the final part of the show. We have about 4 extra songs, our usual #1 LP track and a running time of 2 hours and 57 minutes.

Yeah, not even close. I don't think a featuring credit should really count.
There are 2 feats: Most written in the top 5 (Beatles had 4 of the 5 which Barry Gibb tied) and songs by the artist in the top 5. (Bee Gees had 2 in any given week, 50 Cent one) If we're counting performing on the song, the score is Bee Gees 4, 50 Cent 2.
Thanks to all who contributed to the post over the week. I was a teenager when the Fab Four invaded the U.S. in early 64. We were just getting ourselves back on our feet after the assassination that took the life of our 35th. President of the United States. I remember them performing on the Ed Sullivan Show for the first time. I know 1964 put a demarkation point between the end of the singer/songwriter and the start of the British Invasion, with more groups arriving in the US to follow the Beatles coat tails.
On That Note: .....
I just finished production of the top 40 countdown for April 4, 1964, and yes, there will be Beatles. You know, it is amazing that they did hold the top 5 spots, BUT we do not hear of them until #31 with "I Saw Her Standing There" and that is it in the top 40.
In this show you will hear many artists that have had fewer chart releases during the British Invasion, but came back in the 1970's (Four Seasons, Beach Boys, Chuck Berry).
Also in this show will be a couple of Beatle novelity songs, lots of countdown extras, and special production of songs 5 to 1.
All you Casey Kasem fans there is a special part in the show after the #1 song (because I had no where else to put it.) that you would love to hear.
