AT40 | American Top 40 With Ryan Seacrest
The show bent to fit the Billboard rankings, and some songs had to be edited in addition to whatever edits had been done for the single releasewith a verse or chorus cut usually for songs on their way out of the countdownin order to fit into the show.
But Kasem and his producers never lost sight of the stations carrying their show, and that the stories behind the songs were the chief reason that listeners tuned to AT Shadoe Stevens era[ edit ] InKasem left the show over contract concerns with ABC and signed with Westwood One to host a competing weekly countdown. Casey's final AT40 show, the th in the series, aired on August 6, At no point during that final show did Kasem ever let on that any changes were afoot.
However, he closed the show by telling the audience to catch him on the television show America's Top 10 and did not plug the following week's AT40 since December 19,he had always plugged both during his signoff.
The change did not do much to stem the decline as loyal listeners did not take to Stevens as they had to Kasem. Further complications arose when some stations that stayed with Stevens also added Kasem's new show. In an attempt to win back an audience, AT40 tried new features, including interview clips, music news, top 5 flashbacks, and previews of upcoming chart hits called the "AT40 Sneek Peek" .
It also stopped using the Hot chart, switching first to the Hot Airplay chart and finally to the Mainstream Top 40 chart. Later still, the countdown would use what was called a "No Nuttin'" gimmick that drew criticism; at various points of the show, a song would start immediately after the jingle for its position on the chart was played and Stevens would not offer any commentary until it concluded. Radio Expressfounded by original show creator Tom Rounds, kept AT40 in production following the move by ABC as the program was still carried in foreign markets.
The very last original AT40 aired on January 28,and it ended with an extended last segment. As usual, the 2 song on the chart led it off; that song was " Another Night " by Real McCoywhich had been the 1 song one week earlier. Stevens then took a moment to thank the listeners for their support over the previous twenty-four plus years and played one last Long Distance Dedication, sent by him to the fans. Stevens then gave a rundown of how many songs had been played over the series' entire run to that point, with a final total of different chart toppers, including the one he was about to play as it returned to the top of the chart that week: As Stevens then read the credits and signed off for the final time, he played one final song.
Perhaps appropriately, considering the circumstances, the song was " Happy Trails ". American Top 40 returns; second Casey Kasem era[ edit ] Nearly three years after the cancellation of AT40, a series of events began that would result in the return of the long-running countdown to radio.
Original host Casey Kasem had acquired the rights to the name and branding of his creation, but found Westwood One unwilling to exploit them. In addition, Kasem and his syndicator's parent company were in a salary dispute as Kasem felt he was not getting fair treatment while the syndicator believed the amount of advertising revenue Casey's Top 40 was generating did not justify Kasem's demands.
Since there was interest in Kasem, who was now 65 years old and hosting two adult contemporary countdown shows in addition to his pop show, Westwood One decided it was best for them to retain Kasem and in December he reupped for one additional year.
However, he left Westwood One toward the end of February and gave no notice that he would not be back. Although Kasem would eventually be taken to court by his former syndicator, the signing enabled him to reintroduce the American Top 40 name and brand to a modern audience. It also gave Chancellor the rights to the historic name as Kasem signed over his rights to the branding. On the weekend of March 28,one week after Westwood One finally cancelled the three countdowns Kasem was hosting for them after four weeks without him.
Chancellor also brought Kasem's AC countdowns to their network, with both now being branded as American Top 20 see Spin-off programming below. The only exception was a brief period from October to August when an obscure Mediabase chart was used. This chart had a rather ambiguous recurrent rulewhich would see songs removed weekly from the chart from as high as By the time Kasem's last show aired, the show had gone back to using Mediabase's charts.
His final 1 was Outkast 's " Hey Ya! These extras included interviews with celebrities which were not restricted to musical or countdown artistsa gossip section, and an update on movies screening in cinemas.

Other extras inducted on a regular basis include "AT40 Breakout", a song predicted to crack the chart within the next few weeks formerly known as the "Out of The Box" hit ; "Request Line", a segment in which Ryan Seacrest will play a song requested by a listener; "Double Play", a former hit from the artist just played; "AT40 Sleaze" inspired by the "Dees Sleaze" segment of the Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 radio show ; and "AT40 Rewind", a hit song from the past decade or so.
In between songs, Seacrest and his guest hosts often make deadpan one-liners while writers and producers can be heard laughing frequently, including the security guard "Roger". Additionally, Seacrest initially opened most shows by playing the previous week's 1 song, as Kasem often did in the s; this was discontinued afterbut in mid Seacrest began including a shorter recap segment in the show's introduction, in which he would play brief segments of the previous week's top three hits.
In Decemberthe Hot AC version of the show debuted, giving both Seacrest and Kasem competing countdowns in the same format until The show also began using a new chart that used no recurrent rule.
On the first show with Ryan Seacrest, this led to several older songs reappearing after having dropped off many weeks earlier. Over the long term, it meant songs could spend long runs for about a year on the chart even after they went to recurrent status on other published charts. In" Scars " by Papa Roach would go on to tie the record.
This hit remained on the chart for 72 weeks, from July to November American Top 40 also became more interactive, involving online song voting and e-mail.

The website also includes a toll-free number where fans can make requests and " shoutouts ", as they would to a local radio station, and by replayed clips of shoutouts became part of the show.
Online song voting was later reinstated, with results of votes on American Top 40's website factored into the chart rankings. AT40 was also expanded to social media through Twitter and Facebook where listeners from around the world will request a song to be included in the AT40 Extra segment, as well as their own mobile application which is available for free download on the Apple AppStore for iOS devices and on Google Play for Android devices.

The show was syndicated by Premiere Radio Networks. In its early weeks the shows were the original four-hour format of an American Top 40 episode, but after the first month and a half the show was reduced to three hours.

On the 70s on 7, it replaced the 'Satellite Survey', a Top 30 countdown of s hits, produced by Sirius and hosted by Dave Hoeffel. Most show dates roughly correspond to the current week in real time.

The shows are available in either their full original four-hour format, or an abbreviated three-hour version that omits the first hour of the show.
To date, the latest program to air as part of the "AT The 80s" package has been August 6, — Kasem's last show with the original program. Due to the rights to Shadoe Stevens-era episodes being held by Cumulus Media, no programs from August 13, to have been re-aired as part of this or any similar block.
To date, the only re-aired classic AT40 programs that featured a host other than Kasem are the shows of March 25, with Dick Clark as host, and September 12, with Gary Owens as host.
Both have been aired as tributes after Clark's and Owens' deaths. Newly produced extra segments hosted by voiceover talent Larry Morgan are available for use at stations' discretion. Prior to Casey leaving Premiere Radio, these segments were hosted by his son Mike; when the series first began, these segments were hosted by one of Casey's former guest hosts, Ed McMann.
These extra segments are also heard on the 80s show. KQQL was the first to sign on, airing programs beginning on December 30, Typically, the "optional extras" were songs that had yet to enter the top 40 of the Hot For early s programs, some of the "optional extras" were actually extras i.
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 70's shows that were originally produced in mono are being converted to true stereo by Ken Martin. Chart data used by American Top 40[ edit ] Billboard magazine[ edit ] 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 normally 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.
