American Top 40 with Casey Kasem: August 20, 1983 is a syndicated radio show multi-vinyl album box set featuring Duran Duran, released in the USA by ABC Watermark during 1983.

About the albumEdit

The album was used for licence broadcast on August 20, 1983, 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 Duran Duran's "Is There Something I Should Know?", a single which peaked at no.4 on the US Billboard Hot 100. The show was aired during a period when Duran Duran were in Montserrat, working on tracks for Seven and the Ragged Tiger.

The Police are at no.1, a band featuring Sting who later performed on Arcadia's So Red the Rose album in 1985.

Rita Coolidge's "All Time High" is a James Bond theme song, released two years before Duran Duran's "A View to a Kill".
