In somewhat of a countdown fashion, HERC will be featuring a different Casey Kasem Christmas show or countdown each day from now until December 25th, in reverse chronological order, starting with the most recent and ending with the very first American Top 40 Christmas countdown from 1971.
Near the end of his long and illustrious broadcasting career, Casey Kasem recorded several Christmas music themed shows for his latter day countdowns American Top 20 and American Top 10. Day 9 of the 12 Days Of Casey is Part One of a Three Part of An American Top 10 Christmas, another show that is not a countdown but rather just a really Special Holiday Edition of American Top 10, originally broadcast on three consecutive December weekends in 1994. For collectors of Casey's American Top 10 episodes, today's featured episode is #47. In a nod to Casey's programs of the past, the first two parts feature special Holiday Long Distance Dedications. The Commodores version of "Angels We Have Heard On High" is the Long Distance Dedication this time around. The next two parts will be posted as Day 8 and Day 7.
