Casey Kasem

Sorry to hear of the passing of Casey Kasem at 82.  Even more sorry to hear of all the Kasem family issues that dominated the news in the past few months. Put your petty problems aside and let the man die with dignity....

Casey retired in 2009, but apparantly had both Parkinson's and a form of dementia.

I mentioned on WHBY this morning of my love of his American Top 40 show, especially in my young years of the 70's and 80's, when Casey was in his heyday.  I used to sneak my old radio into bed with me as a kid, keep it down low so I could hear it, and hopefully Mom wouldn't, otherwise my radio was gone!  To hear Casey count down the hits, with anticipation of what the number one record(yes, record!) was that week is still a great childhood memory.

Rest in peace Casey, and we'll keep reaching for the stars....
