        RIP Casey Kasem. He's an American treasure and icon. I have spent many an hour listening to his Top 40 Countdown as a teenage kid in the 70's. He was so good that I liked his show even though I generally hated top 40 music. I was more of a "FM album-rock" kind of guy. Anyway, he will be missed, and I hope his family works out their problems.

            Man this sucks. He was a awesome radio personality and as another poster said. The last of a dying breed.

                This! When he died I first thing I thought of was when he flew off the handle. I forgot all the positive he tried to put out there. I haven't even listened to the America's top 40 since he left.

                    I also listened to him when I was a kid and much of my early exposure to music was the radio and his show. They still replay his show from the 80's at least on Sunday afternoons, just like when his show originally aired. He will be missed. RIP

                          He was wonderful. Grew up listening to and taping his show every week, and when I got my first job in radio after college I was the board op for his show locally in Denver. Got to spend every Sunday morning with my hero.

                          He will definitely be missed.

                            I have been replaying them .. I think I like the commercials more then the Music.

                              As silly as that skit was, it fully displayed what a pro Kasem really is. That skit would have been just plain stupid with anyone else, but he makes it funny.

                              It reminds me of something I saw the late actor, Richard Burton, do years ago on a daytime tv talk program. He was asked to "read" a phone book. He read it like he was reading poetry or Shakespeare, or something. Man, it was amazing.

                              Anyway, that's why I like Casey Kasem, not for the music, but just because he was so good, he made the material more interesting.
