Casey Kasem R.I.P. 1932-2014
For many years, I listened to Casey Kasem's America's Top 40 radio show every week. I couldn't wait to find out what song was Number 1! I was an avid fan during the late 1970s and the early 1980s.
Beginning in 1980, Casey also had a television version of the show, America's Top 10. I watched this show every week for quite a few years. Above is a typical episode from 1983.
Casey, of course, also voiced Shaggy in the immortal Scooby-Doo. Generations of children grew up watching that show.
As Casey always said at the end of his shows: "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."
Casey, you reached for the stars. You found them.
