Just wondering why the "This Week On American Top 20/American Top 10" feature was removed from the site. When it was updated, it was a great feature to check out and recap all of the extras and spotlight hits after listening to the shows....and it was also nice to have if you missed part of or all of a show.

Rob felt that the feature was taking away too much from the listening experience of the shows. Casey's shows, most especially AT10, are more extras-based than ever, and we felt posting the list here "blew" the surprise of knowing what was coming next when you're listening to the actual show.
Rob is the ultimate decision-maker when it comes to this site...I just help him administer it. Please post comments here, or feel free to email him regarding the "This Week" feature.
I don't feel it was taking away from listening to the shows at all. In fact, I never even looked at the lists until Sunday afternoon after both shows have aired so I can recap and see what the songs were again...and that is also when I go and look at the charts for the first time as well.
I like the feature as it enables people to know what they missed if they didn't hear a show for the week, or if they're in an area where no Casey shows air at all.
If someone sends me the information each week, I'd be glad to add it to my site. I usually update my site Sunday evenings anyway, so that I don't ruin #1 for those who listen. I'll even add a spoiler warning if necessary.
