I remember listening to America's Top 40 every Sunday morning. He had such a great voice. I believe Ryan Seacrest took over the Top 40?

Think of the great DJs from days past like Casey.. Rick Dees. Cousin Brucie, George Michael (He of the Sports Machine was a DJ in the 60's and 70's before becoming a sportscaster, not the singer.. ..) Larry Lujack, Wolfman Jack, Dr Demento, Scott Shannon.. And I'll throw in Howard Stern and Don Geronimo. Both more known for 'guy talk' radio, but certainly in Geronimo's case, a music radio DJ legend.

I could go on, and I hate to even name names there, because there'll be someone I've left off that shouldn't be.

To kids today, a "DJ" is.. I don't know what to define it as.
Labonte 18,

My local Classic Hits station started air Casey's AT 40 Countdown on Sunday. The year was 7/14/1973. Sunday was the 13th so how cool is that?

It was a 3 hr. broadcast. If others want to hear it there is a free App for iPhone or pad and droid, or the website or several other streaming options. Let me know if anyone wants the link.

Those three hours of hearing Casey just flew by. I'd forgotten how many country songs crossed over. Others are on my local station's playlist so I hear them. But it is an opportunity for adults to remember some fond memories. And teens/kids can hear what radio was.

I hope that he doesn't wind up like James Brown.. Sitting in a cooler for months on end waiting to be buried because of the fighting.

I think I called that one right, unfortunately. Perhaps not about the fighting causing it.. But, I had a bad feeling it was headed that direction.

Exclamation Could This Be Much Stranger?

Casey's adult children learned his body has been released to his wife. Where and what she'll do with it are the questions. I believe Casey's soul deserves to RIP. I don't think that is happening yet. I still hope for him to have PEACE!
Radio star Casey Kasem's remains moved from funeral home against children's wishes
