American Top 40 first aired back in 1970 on only a hand full of stations. It was the fourth of July weekend. Casey Kasem was the original host and it was not long before the show was heard coast to coast and around the world every week.

Check out all the shows just the way they aired back in the seventies on Oldiez 96.1 WODZ every Sunday morning from 6am til 9am. Here is a video of one of the great songs from 1973.
