American Top 40 with Casey Kasem: August 3, 1985 is a syndicated radio show multi-vinyl album box set featuring Duran Duran, released in the USA by ABC Watermark during 1985.

About the albumEdit

The album was used for licence broadcast on August 3, 1985, 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 "A View to a Kill" single at no.11, plus "Get It On (Bang a Gong)" by The Power Station peaking at no.9 on the US charts.

Also included is Limahl, an artist who was a member of Kajagoogoo when Nick Rhodes co-produced the band in 1982-83.
