An inspiration for American Top 40? After playing hundreds of thousands of 2:00 to 3:00 minute tracks, Casey came up with the idea of a lifetime.

Is THAT where they got the idea for the 486-SX?

At that time was WJBK a 50 KW day and if so what was the nighttime power?

I'd have to look at the History Card. I think it was 10 kW Day and 1 kW Night on 1500 kHz. Before that, until 1956 as I recall, they were 250 watts Day and Night nondirectional on 1490 kHz from Highland Park.
