Casey Kasem (1932-2014)

I've been listening to your show on the radio
And you seem like a friend to me.

Kemal Amin "Casey" Kasem
April 27, 1932 – June 15, 2014

"Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."


  1. Dear Casey,

    My long distance dedication goes out to a man who has had a significant impact on me. We share the same birthday and he was there during my formative years beginning in 1974. He was there every weekend rain or shine, helping me with my homework, my chores or consoling me when my heart was breaking. As I got older, I slowly began to pull away from him but he was there whenever I needed him. And then a strange thing happened, he retired and instead of just being there on weekends, he was there 24/7 urging me to keep my feet on the ground while reaching for the stars. And this past Father's Day, he finally reached the stars himself. So Casey, could you play whatever song you'd like for once in your life cause my long distance dedication is to you, my friend. Thanks for everything.


  2. Not many people would be 'man' enough to quote Charlie Dore... Glad to see you bring it on behalf of Casey. Well done, Kid.

  3. Mark and Herc, both moving tributes to a man who had such an impact on so many of us. Well done, guys.
