The repeat has been aired this morning, 04.00 to 07.00 BST before The Classic Countdown.

There is still an opportunity on The Eagle ( see the link above), today at 13.00 BST, althought bitrate is not the same, I know.

The satellite and the online feeds of Canadian Forces Network have connected to the emergency tape of Radio Canada International and the regular Sundayīs shows are not on air today.

That had affected to The Classic Countdown, The Canadian Top 20 Countdown and , I hope, not to American Top 40 The 80īs and Country Top 40 these following hours today.

They have been 20 extra AT 40 The 80īs shows and 4 extra AT40 The 70īs shows.

And , as an offtopic, the victory of Espaņa.

After the end of FIFA WC 2010, today July 12th , regular programming has returned to CFN Radio, but American Top 40 The 80īs IS ON AIR at 6 pm UK time ( 7 pm CET).

Letīs see if tomorrow there will be the show. If so, maybe we can consider Monday to Friday, the same time, as a regular basis. ( Summer schedule ?).

http://www.europe.forces.gc.ca/tn-pb...fn-rfc/cfn.asx or SES Astra 1, 12604 H, 22000, 5/6.

Cheers, once again, for the heads up! The recording has started - 1985, a great year for AT40

I hope this coming first week of august they play the last show of Casey, that was on august 6th 1988. He did the show without a metion he was leaving and the following day Shadoe Stevens took over.

I love Shadoe Stevens, too.

Last saturday the played the show when Prince became Nš 1 with When doves cry and Bruce Springsteen was an eternal number 2 with Born in the USA.

When the show was aired on AFRTS Rota, Spain ( 2 weeks later dued to the sending by airplane) the show was edited in the radio station and the mentions of dates , at the end , were banned. They received the show in a four 33 rpm vinyl box ( once I saw it in a saturday morning visit to the radio station).

http://www.avalonyardsale.com/lindas...40-3-25-83.jpg

My first contact with the show was in the summer of 1976 when If you leave me now by Chicago was in the number 14 once. Then, the weekly listening started in the early 80īs when my older sisters let me use the family FM radio set.

Country 1035 ran American Country Countdown,at the end of each of the first two hours Bob Kingsley would read out and play a listener request and they sent the listener an ACC shirt and a copy of the show in question. I sent in a request and it was mentioned and played. About three weeks later a package turned up in the mail with the shirt-which was more of a long-sleeve fleece top-and the pack that they sent out to each station taking the show,it had four cds,one for each hour,along with the cue sheet which listed the segment timings and where to insert local ads etc,and a handwritten letter from Bob thanking me for listening.

As you'll know,1035 eventually folded,although in the last weeks before they ceased broadcasting they stopped playing ACC,saying they couldn't play it for "technical reasons" and that it would return the following week-this message was played each week until they closed. By then I'd switched to listening to ACC online and continued to do so until Kix Brooks took over. Now I usually listen to Country Countdown USA,the good thing is there are plenty of stations which broadcast it and stream online so you get a choice of listening times depending on which station you tune to.

You can go on listen to Bob on CFN Radio on sundays 5 to 9 pm UK Time. ( Now with Country Top 40 http://www.ct40.com/ ).

I have never listened to American Country Countdown with Kix Brooks ( because I canīt find a satellite radio station and because I am not a big fan of country music for following 2 country music shows), but I love Bob Kingsley and used to hear him when he was in ACC.

Saturdays 2 to 6 pm was Casey Kasemīs AT40.

Sundays 2 to 6 pm was ACC with Bob

And Saturdays 6 to 8 pm was Walt "Baby" Love with The Countdown .

That is on AFRTS Rota 102.5 FM and eventually I listened to Dick Clark 's Rock&Roll and Remember saturday mornings.

I was listening to CFN Radio last night to know if the had AT40 The 80īs show at 00.00 hours. It was not, they had the regular programming ( As it happens part 2). So yesterday extra AT 40 show could be an isolated show. We will see it today at 6 pm, then.

There is no more extra AT 40 The 80īs shows monday to friday at 6 pm on CFN Radio.

Yesterday extra show was on air because there was not a edition of As if happens after the FIFA WC, but now the show has returned and the fillers are not necessary.

AT 40 shows keep on on the weekend as regular schedule.

Listening to an August edition of The Weekly Top 40, 8/10/85.
This was a good year, as Laser558 was on air and I use to listen to Chris Cary's Radio Nova,which also broadcast Rick Dees Weekly Top 40 Saturdays at 12 midday
Nova also broadcast Dees-American Music Magazine, I think.

Rick Dees American Music Magazine used to be a Monday to Friday show on AFRTS Rota. It was 1 hour show then with the chart songs then. The thing is that the same station used to give American Top 40 on saturdays and that show week days in the morning.

I was never a bid Dees fan, just a bit too zany for me. Twenty five years later i'd be prepared to give his repeated shows another try, after all the music will still be great.

Great Casey countdown this weekend on AT40, 1984 - some good stuff in there

Sometimes they have problems on Sundays. They lost the regular feed so they connected to RCI feed or just nothing.

That is the reason I try to record all the possible shows on Saturday.

The station, like the most of them, is automated and specially on the weekend. Normally I hear it on satellite, but the online feed is simulcasted the most of the times.

Well, I am telling you all this and I havent listened to what I have recorded on minidisc yet. I dont want to have a surprise, but normally I know everything is OK when I have all the recording in a one track recording on minidisc. When the station does strange things with the feed, more of 1 minidisc track is created in the recording and I know the feed has been broken or so. ( Audio lost, abrupt change of the feed, long blank spaces, etc. Each of them creates a new track).

Edit : I have checked last Saturdayīs evening broadcast of AT40 The 80īs and itīs OK. With news in French sometimes but that is normal.

Maybe the problem with the show happened on Sunday afternoon.

Sometimes they connect to news in French from RCI and then they dont connect to the English CFN feed back and that is when the problems start.

It is curious, I have been checking all the AT 40 The 70īs shows aired in the last year and it has never been played a show from 1979 year.

Maybe because in 1978 AT 40 became a 4 hour show and any 1979 show does not fit with the 3 hour long format AT40 The 70s has.

Canadian Forces Network Radio ceases tomorrow october 30 on Astra 1 satellite , 19.2š East.

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/forums/s...8&postcount=89

That ceasing, which is the saddest news ever happened, will affect to some american syndicated radio shows on satellite.

The station remains online ( 128 kbps mp3 http://www.europe.forces.gc.ca/tn-pb...fn-rfc/cfn.asx ) and local FM.
