Seeing that this list covers a five year period with the anniversary being on 4/7/12.....I'm curious to know how many of these shows you guys possess. So why not do a simple audit of your files and post some tallies.....lets see who is the "king" of countdown shows collected. BTW your count can also include shows not already aired or sub hosted....happy counting!!
In the thread of 70s AT40s by chart date there's a list of months for which all available shows have been played. Here's all such months in the 80s:
September 1980 (two guest hosted shows) March 1981 July 1982 (one guest hosted) September 1982 (one guest hosted) March 1983 June 1983 January 1984 (one guest hosted) April 1984 July 1984 (one guest hosted) April 1985 (one guest hosted) August 1985 (one guest hosted) January 1986 (one guest hosted; includes 1985 year end countdown) June 1987 August 1988 (only one Casey show)
In addition, if you leave out specials: January 1980 (minus the top hits of the 70s countdown which won't be played in the 80s series; also one guest hosted show) July 1980 (minus Book of Records, which I doubt will be aired as an 80s show) January 1988 (minus 1987 year end countdown; includes two guest hosted shows) July 1988 (minus Triathlon special; also two guest hosted shows)
Guys, would any of you like to see Premier broadcast the original book of Records show from July '80. I was stayin' at my grandma's, that weekend, and, would love to be able to write down the records, and songs that made the records entries.
