What was the least likely country that carried CT40? My guess is either Zambia or Uganda. I would like to hear what some of you other guys think! Merry Christmas also! The reason why I mentioned Uganda and Zambia is because they actually did carry CT40!

North Korea would almost certainly have never carried CT40 or any countdown show for that matter. From what I have read, radioes there were adjusted by the authorities so that only state radio could be heard and anyone attempting to readjust the radioes so that other stations could be heard would be in big trouble, so that rules out listening to any CT40 broadcasts from South Korea, Japan, China, etc.
As of June 1990, the Soviet Union didn't broadcast American Top 40 (and probably not Casey's Top 40 either). I went to Moscow for two months then to study the Russian language and took a copy of the AT40 1989 YE that I had recorded off radio(I wasn't aware of Casey's Top 40's existence at that time). Some of the Russian friends I made while there heard the show and after I explained what it was, they became really interested. Perhaps they were among those who would successfully request the airing of AT40 in the former Soviet Union in the early 1990s
It's funny to guess but just to let you know the show was aired in Moscow, Russia in the early 90's at least, Casey said so during the stations mention. I'll try to find out the exact show.
Meanwhile: On Casey's Top 40 of August 1, 1992 102.1 FM Budapest, Hungary was mentioned On August 8, 1992 show RCT FM Indonesia was mentioned On September 5, 1992 show 105.8 FM Genova, Italy was mentioned this show was hosted by Mark Elliot and also Prague, Czechoslovakia (at that time) and Vilnius, Lithuania were mentioned during the early 90's
On April 4, 1993 show 103.8 FM Blue Danube Radio in Vienna, Austria was mentioned (also on the very first CT40 show in the final hour I guess) On May 8, 1993 show 105.8 FM Genova, Italy was mentioned again
