Guilty Pleasure

On Sunday afternoons, 98.9 KIM FM plays the American Top 40. What's so exciting about that? Well, it's not the current, Seacrest-hosted Top 40, but a Top 40 from some random year in the 1980's. Fantastic! It's really a must-listen for you 80's music connoisseurs. There are a lot of songs from those years that didn't make it out of the 80's and onto current radio playlists, songs that I haven't heard or even thought about for years. And I find those are the songs that remind me the most of that era, precisely because they are stuck there. For every What You Need by INXS, there's a Day By Day from the Hooters, or a Night Moves by Marilyn Martin. I find myself tempted to move my Sunday Target trip to the Super Target in Cordova, just so I have more time to spend in the car listening to Casey Kasem. I feel bad about keeping this treasure all to myself, so I'm taking this opportunity to share it with you- enjoy.

I love the old top 40 w/ Casey. They also play one from 6a-10a on Saturday mornings.

I spend the weekends flipping between Casey Kasem on Kim and the Dick Clark-hosted version on the oldies station out of West Memphis. Retrolicious!
