R.I.P. Casey Kasem

June 17th, 2014 by Dieter in Music

He was one of THE voices of the 1980s. He was not a singer, but a radio moderator. His “American Top 40” had been aired by radio stations all over the world, including Austria. They were a fixture for me each week. It was always interesting to hear what was top in the US charts, what was new that hadn’t made it across the pond so far. And Casey brought those charts to us in a unique way. Songs didn’t climb three places, but notches. And the long distance dedications were stories from a land far away.

Now he died aged 82 on 15th June 2014. Casey, keep your feet on the ground, and keep on reaching for the stars!
