This is my audio mp3/wma-collection (list updated on 6/19/2021). Almost all AT40 shows have a bitrate of 192 kBit/s. (I have reduced the bitrates on my main page to enable easier downloads.) CT40 shows are in various bitrates. AT20/AT10 shows are in 192 or 256 kBit/s.

* In addition to the original recordings my collection also includes almost all AT40 shows with Casey Kasem from 1970 to 1988 in "remastered" versions. (Only guest-hosted shows were not remastered.) Those recordings have better sound quality and include additional "extras", songs later inserted by the Premiere Radio Networks, presented by Larry Morgan. The 1970s reruns have three extras each, the 1980s four. All shows are without commercials. Birates vary, but a lot have 320 kBit/s.

* Those remastered shows also include three curiosities: the #1 Hits of the 1970s in 6 parts (4 hours each, i. e. 24 hours overall), the #1 Hits of the 1980s in 5 parts (4 hours each, i. e. 20 hours overall) and #80-#41 of 1971. Those shows were reconstructed(!), using old voice segments from Casey Kasem, by Ken Martin in 2014 (1970s), 2018(?)(1980s) and 2020 (1971). The #1 songs from 1970 through 1979 and 1980 through 1988 (not 1989!) respectively are played chronologically (plus extra songs).

You should know that "Casey's Top 40" is not the same as "American Top 40" (AT40)! From 1989 to 1995 AT40 (with Shadoe Stevens) and CT40 (with Casey Kasem) ran parallel each week.
