Altho we knew he was near death, still it was sad to hear that Casey Kasem passed away yesterday. It seems like he never aged because of the many radio stations that aired the reruns of his classic American Top 40 countdown shows. His iconic voice and style are familiar to everyone. He was also the voice of the NBC Television Network in the 70s and 80s, and the voice of many cartoon characters, most notably Shaggy on Scooby Doo. Cameron and I had the pleasure and privilege to interview him a few years back about his work with the Jerry Lewis MDA Telethon. Here is a clip of Casey from one of the telethons, performing the voice of Shaggy.
