Casey Kasem (DJ, voice of Shaggy), RIP

Casey Kasem

One of the most recognizable voices in America is now silent. Radio personality and actor Casey Kasem died today (6/15) at age 82. Born Kemal Amin Kasem in Detroit he created American Top 40 in 1970 and he counted down the hits on some form of the program till his retirement in 2009. In addition to his radio work, Casem did a lot of work in animation: he was the voice of Shaggy on Scooby Doo Where Are You?, Robin on Batman/Super Friends, plus parts on Battle of the Planets (G-Force), and the ’80s Transformers series. He acted as well, mostly in the ’70s — you may see him pop up in episodes of Hawaii 5-0, Quincy, Charlie’s Angels and other programs.

His catchphrase was “Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars.” We’ll miss you, Casey. RIP. Some clips below…
