This is my whole English language audio mp3-collection (list updated on 7/19/2017). Almost all AT40 shows have a bitrate of 192 kBit/s. (I have reduced the bitrates just for this website to enable easier downloads.) CT40 shows are in various bitrates. AT20/AT10 shows are in 192 or 256 kBit/s.

You should know that "Casey's Top 40" is not the same as "American Top 40" (AT40)! From 1989 to 1995 AT40 (with Shadoe Stevens) and CT40 (with Casey Kasem) ran parallel each week. From 1995 to 1998 there was only CT40. And in 1998 Casey re-started AT40 (and abandoned CT40). You can read all the details on Wikpedia, just enter "Casey's Top 40".

You will also hear a selection of original sequences from Casey's radio career, e. g. the very first Long Distance Dedication from 1978 and its "predecessor"(!) on KRLA from 1964. Mike and Kerri talk about all significant aspects of their father's life, including (voice) acting, TV presenting, baseball and his philanthropic character.
