On the weekend of July 4th, 1970, American Top 40 was born.
It ran on a grand total of 7 stations ... and in mono.
Casey Kasem quickly became a must listen program, airing on thousands of stations from coast-to-coast and around the world.
For the Independence weekend, Magic 103.1 will play non-stop AT40 countdowns including the very first one from exactly 50 years ago, digitally remastered and now presented in stereo.
Here's the full lineup of shows!
