OMG BEST THING EVER
I can't believe I'm going to say this, but here goes: God bless Clear Channel. Sure, they've done a lot to make radio worse, but their new(ish) Format Lab is full of good stuff, programming they're doing for their myriad HD channels. Nothing, however, can top American Top 40 Classics - it's AT40 broadcasts from the '80s, all hosted by Casey Kasem (one of my few professional idols, alongside Christgau), uncut and ad-free (sorry, Zena Jeans fans), and streaming online! THIS IS AUDIO HEAVEN. If you're a child of the '80s (and aren't an insufferable rockist), you may well agree.
