FLASHBACK: America's Top 10 June 20, 1982


This is a particularly sad one to write because of Casey's finally "reaching the stars" earlier this week.  Rest assured that HERC will continue honoring Casey's legacy by featuring more of these wonderful videos from burtiscurtis09. (Click here to read/listen to HERC's previous America's Top 10 posts.)


Today's episode is split in half and for the first time HERC can recall, a music video is shown in it's entirety.  Here's the June, 20, 1982 episode of America's Top 10 based on Billboard's charts dated June 19th.
