    Actually, the AT40 countdown (c/o Billboard Hot 100) hosted by Casey Kasem was already being aired in Manila back in the 70's. The first station that carried this was DWXB 102.7, then called Magic Disco 102. This was sometime 1976-77, if I'm not mistaken.

    99.5RT, then owned by Emilio Tuason, took over the license to air this in the Philippines sometime 1979 or 1980. RT was also airing "The History of Rock & Roll" hosted by the late, great Robert W. Morgan, probably the man with the greatest voice of all time. Here's a sample of incredibly deep baritone voice:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AuF1LLC_J5U

    Soon after, RT decided to air the funny Rick Dees of 102.7 KIIS-FM LA who broadcasted the Weekly Top 40 countdown c/o Cashbox Magazine. Dees was a complete opposite of Kasem as he injected humor into his program. Kasem was more direct to the point, although both were equally effective with their respective audiences.

    meron pa bang Rick Deessss and the weekly top 40!!! rito?

    yeah.. at40 is the only time i could listen to rt without switching stations..
  • Jay P. MercadoJay P. Mercado Moderator PEx Moderator
    I think he still has his own countdown but in a different station. When Dees left KIIS-FM in 2004, it was Ryan Seacrest who took over his morning timeslot at 6AM - ergo, Seacrest also took over the Weekly Top 40 countdown...
  • BeerhandBopBeerhandBop PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    oh okay. yea.. rick dees has his own website still. and that's where i get songs... to... d... l.... lololol.


    dati rt had american chart show.

    wonder what happened to that.

    different station? baka different radio syndicator. AT40 is syndicated by Premiere/Clear Channel (which currently owns KIIS FM Los Angeles). Yung kay Rick Dees naman, ibang radio syndicator at hindi Premiere/CC.
  • eddyon102eddyon102 PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    Btw, yung Weekly Top 40 ni Rick Dees ay nasa Y101FM Cebu tuwing Sunday afternoon. Kung ikaw ay nasa outside Cebu (e.g. Manila), go to their website www.y101fm.com. O kaya naman, just listen via Rick's official website (updated tuwing Saturday night in Phil. Standard Time).

    Casey Kasem is in ill health. Let's pray for him. He's now 82 years old.

    Judge: Casey Kasem should be fed, hydrated

    A radio legend and original host/co-founder of American Top 40 has been gone just recently. Condolence to his family.

    R.I.P. Casey Kasem (1932-2014)

    R.I.P. Mr. Casey Kasem
  • RIP Casey Kasem. His trademark catchphrase 'keep your feet on the ground & keep reaching for the stars' was legendary.

    I remember listening to his AT 40 countdowns religiously during the 80s & even listing them down. If I miss the Sunday countdown I make sure not to miss the 6pm replays on Wednesdays. I also looked forward to his end of the year Top 100 songs countdown, of which the 1983 list was the best imo.
