US radio personality Casey Kasem, has died at the age of 82.
“Early this Father’s Day morning, our dad Casey Kasem passed away surrounded by family and friends,” his daughter, Kerri Kasem, said in a statement posted online.
“Even though we know he is in a better place and no longer suffering, we are heartbroken.”
Depending on what generation you grew up in, you either know Casey for American Top 40 franchise which he founded in 1970, or for providing the voice of Norville “Shaggy” Rogers in the Scooby Doo franchise from 1969 to 1997, and again from 2002 until 2009. He was a legend in both.
For me, even though living in Australia, I remember listening to the American top 40 every week. Casey had a distinct and very likeable voice.
Do you remember Casey Kasem as the voice of Shaggy, or perhaps as host of the American Top 40? Have your say and leave a comment below.
