American Top 40 with Casey Kasem: April 12, 1986 is a syndicated radio show multi-vinyl album box set featuring John Taylor, released in the USA by ABC Watermark during 1986.

About the albumEdit

The album was used for licence broadcast on April 12, 1986, by a syndicated independent radio program created by Casey Kasem, Don Bustany, Tom Rounds and Ron Jacobs.

As its title implies, American Top 40 counts down the forty most popular songs in the USA, from no.40 to no.1. The show used Billboard charts in its early years, then switched to those from Radio and Records upon its late 1990s return.

The compilation includes John Taylor's 9½ Weeks theme song "I Do What I Do", co-written by Taylor, Jonathan Elias and Michael Des Barres.

Also included is Robert Palmer's "Addicted To Love", a single that reached no.1 on the US Billboard Hot 100.
