Trivia: American Country Countdown
  • Dueling Shows: Bob Kingsley's Country Top 40, The Crook & Chase Countdown (hosted by longtime television personalities Lorianne Crook and Charlie Chase) and CMT's Country Countdown USA (with Lon Helton, a former executive of Radio & Records).
  • Executive Meddling: Kix cut the show down from 40 to 30 (although it's still a four-hour show) because program directors were supposedly "uncomfortable" with the songs in the 31-40 range. Apparently this was easier than the directors adding said songs to their playlists. (The show has since reverted to 40.)
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: Casey Kasem, in occasional network public service announcements that aired during the years he and Kingsley were both associated with ABC Radio Networks.
  • The Pete Best: Original host Don Bowman, whose work on the show has become all but forgotten, since shows have not been rerun and the better-known tenure of Bob Kingsley, the producer-turned-successor host, became associated with the show's success.
