R.I.P. Casey Kasem

 
Posted June 16th, 2014 @ 2:59pm

Casey Kasem was an American Icon.

As others have said, he tought us to count to 40...backwards.

I had a chance to meet him once, about 15 yours ago, and it remains one of the greatest highlights of my radio career. Though we were in a crowded room full of people trying to get his attention and talk to him, Mr. Kasem took the time to speak with me on a personal level for a few minutes. I don't often get starstruck, but that did it for me.

 

Casey Kasem was a kind man, giving of his time and devoted to his love of music, with advice that remains appropriate today: "keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."
