Renowned radio and TV host Casey Kasem has passed away this Father’s Day at age 82.
For nearly 40 years, Casey Kasem was one of the best known radio and TV personalities in the country.
“This is American Top 40 in Hollywood. I'm Casey Kasem. Now, we're up to our long distance dedication”
His American Top 40 radio program was an institution, known for Kasem's “long-distance dedications,” and his trademark sign-off.
“Until then, keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.”
Kasem was also the longtime host of America’s Top 10.
“Let's turn right to the action on the Billboard pop singles chart and check out the ten biggest hits this week.”
Born in Detroit in 1932 to Lebanese immigrants, Kasem served in the U.S. Army where he was a DJ on the Armed Forces Radio Korea Network.
Kasem also kept busy as a voice actor. His most famous role: voicing Shaggy in the Scooby Doo cartoons.
Kasem retired in 2009. In his final years, he suffered from progressive dementia, and was at the center of a bitter family feud between Jean Kasem, his wife of 34 years, and his children from his first marriage.
Casey Kasem earned a fortune estimated at 80 million dollars.
