Horrible News . My sympathies go out to his family, his friends, and his fans. R.I.P. Mr Kasem.

I just came on to post it. This was expected as his poor health made his daughter and 2nd wife go to court over his health and ended with the decision too pull the plug on him. Its a shame his twilight was the way it was. He did voice work for over forty years and the longtime TOp 30 Countdown on radio bringing entertainment to many generations.

Ah, another legend gone. He'll definitely be missed, and it's sad how his final days had to be with all of the feuding. Hopefully, his family can band together and stop this horrible and ridiculous war. R.I.P., Casey. You'll be missed for sure.

Groove (Catanooga Cats)
Alexander Cabot III (Josie & The Pussycats)
Peter Cottontail (Here Comes Peter Cottontail)
Waldo (What's New Mr. Magoo?)
Commander Mark (Battle of The Planets)

He also did 2 episodes of Saved By The Bell. By coincidence, both episodes had Mario Lopez playing the drums.

I took a Radio Production class in college in late 1999, and the professor actually played that for us. One girl in the class said "I never knew he had it in him.".

I'm bumping this thread because last week Kasem's controversial death was explored in a new podcast.
