Ray Parker, Jr. The Pogues featuring Kirsty MacColl. In MarchXM Satellite Radio rebranded the XM broadcasts with the "Casey Kasem's American Top 40" name and logo used for terrestrial broadcasts, although XM still aired the commercial-free broadcasts, while Premiere Radio carries edited and recut broadcasts with commercials.
Following the merger of Sirius and XM, the AT40 shows airing on those platforms have occasionally been edited. In some cases, extras and LDDs have been cut from the original broadcasts. Sirius XM 70s on 7 aired the inaugural AT 40 which originally aired July 4, on July 4,as part of a special July 4 broadcast.
As ofAmerican Top The 70s shows that were originally produced in mono are being converted to true stereo by Ken Martin. As ofshows from the s and s are airing continually, without commercials, on the iHeartRadio station " Classic American Top 40 ".
As of Aprilrebroadcast shows are currently aired on radio stations in 7 countries and every U. AT40 used the top 40 songs from the Billboard Hot singles chart from the show's inception in to November 23, The chart was widely regarded as the industry standard for tracking the popularity of singles, and was thus a natural choice to be used.
Kasem would frequently announce during the show that Billboard was the only source for the countdown. While using these charts worked well for the first half of the s, as music changed during the decade and disco became popular on the charts, some rock stations began to drop the show because of complaints from program directors that AT40 was playing too many songs not Musical Youth - Pass The Dutchie (Vinyl) heard on their stations.
This gradually became a wide schism as rock splintered into several formats in the early s. As a result, AT40's weekly playlist could be very diverse in the styles and formats of the songs played. Stations tended to specialize in only one or two of these formats and completely ignore the others.
One solution for the AT40 producers was to air frequent specials at least three or four times a year that concentrated on the classic music of the past, such as Rock in the Movies and Top Hits of the Seventies. But as Top 40 stations evolved into CHRthey began to avoid syndicated shows like AT40, preferring to stick with their own special niche formats. These songs would generally only be aired in brief snippets during the show.
These songs generally scored much higher radio airplay, and some were not even released as singles such as "Steel Bars" by Michael Bolton. During this time, a few songs made very high debuts, including two that almost debuted in the 1 spot: "I'll Be There" by Mariah Careywhich entered at 4, and "Erotica" by Madonnawhich entered at 2. This chart had more mainstream hits but fewer urban, dance and rap songs.
AT40 did not always use the official year-end Billboard chart during the 25 years in which the show used Billboard charts. Inandas well as and —, AT40 compiled its own year-end chart. These charts were often close to Billboard's, but AT40 would use a mid-December to early-December time period while Billboard's survey year varied from year to year.
AT40 matched Billboard's 1 year-end song every year except, and This chart used a recurrent rule that removed songs below 25 that had exceeded 26 weeks in the top 50; these removals, if they occurred in the top 40, would be reflected on the appropriate week's program.
Inthe rule was modified to further restrict long chart runs: songs falling below 20 with at least 20 weeks in the top 50 would now be removed. On October 21,American Top 40 began using an unpublished chart on a weekly basis for the first time in its history.
The most noticeable feature of this new chart was its ambiguous recurrent rule. Songs would be removed regularly from within the top 15, seemingly regardless of the number of weeks they had spent on the chart. The return coincided with another modification in the recurrent rule; songs would be removed below 25 after three consecutive weeks without a bullet an increase in radio plays.
Both of these shows would find a home with him at his new syndicator and were rebranded once he joined. He would concurrently host both Musical Youth - Pass The Dutchie (Vinyl) with AT40 until he handed the show over to Ryan Seacrest in Januarythen continue as host of the AC countdowns until he retired in From toa video version of the show entitled America's Top 10 was aired in syndication to television stations across the United States.
Kasem hosted this version from to When Musical Youth - Pass The Dutchie (Vinyl) left American Top 40 inhe remained as host of America's Top 10 until the end ofwhen he would be replaced by Siedah Garrett and later Tommy Puett. Kasem returned byand the show ran until After Kasem left ABC, the network launched American Golda spinoff oldies countdown featuring far fewer songs, and often focusing on a particular artist hosted by Dick Bartley.
The American Top 40 format was adapted in an Australian show titled Take 40 Australiasimilarly counting down the top 40 songs in the country. Casey Kasem and Watermark's policy regarding putting American Top 40 together was to always play the forty most popular songs in the United States and never to ban a record from the countdown.
However, whenever songs with potentially offensive lyrical content made the top 40, Watermark would send out memos to affiliated stations alerting them of the presence of that song in the countdown and sometimes provide stations with suggestions on how to edit the song out of their AT40 broadcasts.
When the show became part of Premiere Networks sincea few stations airing AT40 especially in most countries around the world were opted to either change versions of each songs or skipped some portions of the show due to various reasons. Calley ", by Terry Nelson and C-Company. Perhaps the most infamous of these songs was Chuck Berry 's number-one hit " My Ding-a-Ling ", which put some stations in the odd position of having to air AT40 without playing the number one song; at least one station, KELI in Tulsa, Oklahomacensored out the song at its 1 position, replacing it with a message from station management, explaining why they chose to censor the program.
In the summer ofradio station KRNQ in Des Moines, Iowaedited out " The Killing of Georgie " by Rod Stewart, because of the subject matter of a homosexual being murdered; that song peaked at 30 on the countdown. Inwhen Billy Joel's " Only the Good Die Young " wherein Joel urged pre-marital sex by a teen Catholic girl, Virginia was on the charts, AT40 had placed warnings in shipments to warn affiliates in highly Catholic populated areas along with a special break in the countdown for stations to substitute another song in its place.
The affiliates usually used the suggestion, though some did not and no major complaints were ever heard. In situations where a charting song contained offensive language and the record company was unable to provide AT40 with a clean edit of the song, the producers would often make an edit themselves.
The offensive lyric in the song was, "He wouldn't take shit from no one. However, this was not before AT40 erroneously played the uncensored version with the lyric " Songs with offensive words in their titles were often censored for radio airplay, and is reflected in their inclusion on AT The songs peaked at 25 and 21 respectively.
That same year, the show also used a slightly suggestive version of soulDecision 's " Faded " which peaked at 6despite a more radio-friendly version of the song being available. InThe Chainsmokers 's " Roses " feat. However, on some versions of the show, the lyric was not censored. InJason Derulo 's " Swalla " feat. InN. D and Rihanna 's " Lemon " was significantly edited. An alternate version of the song was played, which had the final two verses of the song played on loop.
This is presumably to remove the first two verses, in which the lyrics included highly charged political issues such as immigrationracism and anti- Donald Trump sentiments. Inthe chorus of Fletcher 's " Undrunk " was edited due to lyrics about masturbation. InTaylor Swift 's song " Cardigan " was edited due to drinking references in its lyrics, replacing the word "bars" with "cars", the same thing happened in with the Jonas Brothers ' song " Sucker ".
Although Kasem never banned a song from the countdown, there was at least one instance in which both Kasem and his guest host, Charlie Van Dyke, refused to announce the title of a song on his show. Also, as had been done with previous controversial hits, because of the song's suggestiveness, the show's structure was altered slightly, so stations could opt out of the song. This pattern was also evident during the Year End countdown. The song title was mentioned five times during its chart run June 20, ; June 27, ; April 7, ; December 9,and September 19,during the week-ending episode of September 26,when it dropped out of the Top 40, and during the Top of show; Shadoe Stevens, his successor, however did mention the title on the show from July 31,as part of the Flashback feature, as it was in the top 5 from that week in Another song that had its title unannounced after its first week was " Me So Horny " by 2 Live Crewin the fall of the Shadoe Stevens era.
It was mentioned twice at the beginning of the song, and back announced once, its debut week. For the rest of its chart run, the title was never again mentioned. The song did come with edit out instructions for stations as well. In" God is a Woman " by Ariana Grande had its title not mentioned and its chorus edited in some airings of the show in some Middle Eastern countries, presumably due to religious beliefs; despite this some radio stations such as Hi FM in Oman play the song in its entirety during normal programming.
Similar omissions occurred in February when both the Gordon Sinclair and Byron MacGregor versions of The Americans simultaneously hit the Top 40; in each case, only one version was played each week alternately. Don McLean 's hit American Piewhich was long, was split into two segments for the single release.
