Countdown America : Top 83 of '83 (part II) is a syndicated radio show album featuring Duran Duran, released in the USA by RKO Radio Networks during 1983.

About the album[]

The album was used for licence broadcast on 31 December 1983, by a syndicated independent radio program presented by John Leader.

Issued with paperwork, a cover letter and cue sheets detailing each record, the show as its title implies counts down the American top selling singles of 1983.

Included is Duran Duran's "Hungry Like the Wolf" at no.35, a single re-issued in the USA on 3 December 1982.

The Police are at no.1 with "Every Breath You Take" featuring vocals by Sting, who later performed on Arcadia's So Red the Rose album in 1985.
