Rick Dees Weekly Top 40
Rick Dees is a Los Angeles DJ who began his own weekly top 40 countdown in 1983. The "Weekly Top 40" is a mix of humor and chart information, and the show continues today. The show originally used the Cashbox charts, but switched to the Radio and Records Top 40/CHR chart. In 1994, ABC networks bought The Weekly Top 40 and decided to air that in the USA instead of American Top 40. At the beginning of 2000, Premiere Radio Networks became the owner of the show. Dees switched US syndicators in 2005.
Rick sometimes has specials instead of regular countdowns, e.g. a "Block Party All Request Special" or "The Hottest Hits of Summer Special". The show also has split into three versions, a Top 40 version, Hot AC version, and a mainstream AC version. There is an official web site. In 2005, Dees began using his own chart not based on any magazine but based on affiliate airplay instead. Also, in 2005, the Hot AC version of the show expanded from a top 30 to a top 40. Rick has old editions of his countdown available each week on his app.

American Country Countdown
American Country Countdown is very similar to American Top 40. In fact, the show was created by Casey Kasem and Don Bustany. The show has been around since the 1970s. Each week the show counts down the top 40 country songs of the week, as found on Billboard's Country Airplay chart. Visit the official site.
The World Chart Show
In 1995, after the demise of classic AT40, Radio Express needed another show to take the place of AT40 around the world. They came up with the idea for the World Chart Show. The chart is determined by the playlists of the stations that carry the show, rather than paying for a chart from a publication.
