Casey Kasem officially retires at the age of 77 this weekend. Been listening to him for a long time, don't want to say I'm a huge fan of his, but I did like listening to him. Not sure if any of you are old enough to remember that he did the voice for Shaggy in Scooby Doo cartoons in the lates 60's to the early 70's. :)

I haven't listened to Casey for over 20 years, but I still to this day can hear his voice in my minds ear. He is an icon of icons in the music broadcasting world. He's up there with Wolfman Jack and Dick Clark. :bigband: :dance:

Casey is an institution for what he does/did with the Top 40. He really made that thing work and was so visible with it for quite a while. I haven't heard him in a long time, either, but he'll always be the top 40 guy to me.

The guy definitely had a unique voice for sure. I always liked watching Dana Carvey on Saturday Night Live do a impression of him. Can't believe he's 77, but that just proves what kind of legend he is too.
