I will add my Kudos, since I often listed to his show beginning in the 1970s.

One thing I will say: he had a unique 'radio voice'. The first time I heard him on the radio, anytime thereafter as I was changing the AM radio dial and came upon 'that voice', I immediately knew who it was. The same went for Wolfman Jack.

He had quite of list of voices and movies that he did over the years. Had a wide ranging voice talent for sure. Just learned he was a Vegan (nutritional).

So sad to hear about his passing .
I had an unusual encounter with him and his daughter when they were in Atlanta for the 96 Summer Olympics . We were at one of the Atlanta malls in the morning when things got really crazy with paparazzi from Europe came in following some Italian soccer star . I ended up being crowded against a stairwell .Mr. Kasim and his daughter were too . We were stuck there for several minutes . He could not have been nicer and was very helpful in getting us out of the citation . I recognized him immediately by that wonderful voice of his . It was funny to watch how the paparazzi were all over this other guy and Mr . Kasim just was loving watching them from a spectators point of view .
I also saw them a while after this and just loved watching what an attentive loving, caring dad he was to his young daughter.He seemed so very , very kind .

What do you all think of the daughter taking over his care to have it removed?
