“Here we go with the Top 40 hits of the nation this week on American Top 40, the best-selling and most-played songs from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from Canada to Mexico. This is Casey Kasem in Hollywood, and in the next three hours we'll count down the 40 most popular hits in the United States this week, hot off the record charts of Billboard magazine for the week ending July 11th, 1970. In this hour at number 32 in the countdown, a song that's been a hit four different times in 19 years! And we're just one tune away from the singer with the 10,000 Dollar gold hubcaps on his car! Now, on with the countdown!”
(rem.: The airing was one week before the official date! One station even aired it on July 3.)
