It’s a sad day in music history. I remember when I was in my early teens and would lock myself in my room, I would turn on the local music station and would often hear Casey Kasem’s Top 40 countdown. In fact, I listened to a cassette tape I recorded of song from the Top 40. His voice was iconic and you can certainly tell where Ryan Seacrest gets it from.
Below is a link to an article about some of Kasem’s major life events. I had no idea he was a voice in Scooby Doo, or that he was so involved in other [then] current events to do good around the world. I have so much more respect and suddenly, a slightly greater feeling of loss. Rest In Peace, Casey Kasem.
