Time Capsule: It Was 30 Years Ago This Week
April 15, 2011 2 Comments
While I was growing up, I thought Casey Kasem had the best job in the world. I was fascianated by the Billboard charts and loved to listen to American Top 40. All of my family and friends had to arrange their schedules around my ability to listen to Casey’s show each weekend. (Okay, I was an obsessive kid…) I learned my love of trivia and pop culture from these shows, and my head is still full of the facts, figures, and fables Casey shared.
Each week, in celebration of those days, Music and Meaning will note the Billboard champs from 30 years ago. Why 30? It’s my nostalgia, of course. The music I most associate with growing up is the hits of the early 80s. Join me every Saturday (give or take) as we revisit them.
And remember, “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars!”
PS: As of August 5, 2016, I am no longer writing regular posts for this blog, including Time Capsules. After five years, I find my time and focus are needed elsewhere. I will post occassionally when inspired. Thanks for reading and listening!
