The first music element we recognized as a “Jingle” was without any doubt on American Top 40! Thats why it was clear, that we had to start our new Jingle Of The Week Series with one of those elements.
We loved the weekly American Top 40 countdown shows not only because it was a good opportunity to listen to the latest hits from the US, but also for the show´s host Casey Kasem. His unique delivery, and detailed stories behind the hits, became a weekly listening habit for millions of fans worldwide - including us. After a legendary decades long career in radio, TV and voice-acting, he passed away on June 15, 2014 at the age of 82.
