Now into June, June 3, 2006 for this week on WSM-AM (with the R&R issue chart of 5/26/06). It's so cool that even on CT40 they allowed to play recurring songs from years past just like ACC did before the revamp.
KFYZ is playing 5/1/1982, which is the same date of this weekend's Premiere presentation.
Do we know if the theme music/jingles have changed by this point or is it the same as it was when they featured 4/10/1982 a few weeks ago? I know AT40 changed theirs on 4/24/1982...
Still the same.
Thinking back to when the theme previously changed to what we hear on these early 1982 shows, that theme debuted on the 7/22/1978 show. I have several of the early ACC shows with Bob as host. I'm guessing they changed late spring/early summer. I have the 1982 year-end. The jingles changed again in 1984, the same year AT40 underwent a theme and jingle overhaul.

Well, the one thing WSM is allowing to do unlike what the ACC Rewind show did or Premiere in terms of AT40, is to allow guest host shows. And this week happens to be one of them (although Bob does the Billboard sponsor). This week they are featuring June 10, 2006 (and the cue sheets are now up).

Just getting around to editing my recording of last week's 5/1/1982 ACC show, and I heard during one of the commercial breaks, a movie ad voiced by...who else, Casey Kasem. It was for the 1970 film "Five Easy Pieces", starring Jack Nicholson. Pretty cool to hear that.
This station really gives the listener a feel for the "good old days". I certainly can appreciate that. 🙂
Will post later once I know what tonight's airing will be.
ETA: It's 4/30/1988, and sounds like it's been remastered. Sounds great! (Much better than the 1990 show played a few weeks back, which also had several skips in it.)
Interestingly enough, the extra played after Alabama's debut hit "Fallin' Again" at #36, was their #1 "Mountain Music", which was #1 on last week's 5/1/1982 show.

Kingsley's back on the mic today on WSM-AM as they're featuring the chart from June 17, 2006 (R&R issue 6/9). Looking at the chart, this is one of those occasions where it was #1 only on Radio & Records/Mediabase 24/7 and not Billboard, but for certain labels in Nashville, they're okay with just hitting #1 there.
ETA: Looks like they skipped a segment there with #10 and #9 plus a CT40 extra, not sure why... and now the final hour seems to be screwed up with two weeks of songs at #8 and #7. Also it seems like #5 and #4 were swapped
