Casey Kasem, one of America’s most loved DJs has passed away. The Top 40 disc-jockey, who was also the voice of Shaggy on Scooby Doo, has died at the age of 82.

Considered as a pioneer of American radio, Casey Kasem began his career as a DJ in the mid-1950s. He was a disc-jockey and announcer on the Armed Forces Radio Korea Network during his time spent in the US Army.

It was only when he launched the American Top 40 show in 1970 that he started to gain national recognition in the USA. This was the start of Casey Kasem’s rise to prominence in the media circles of the time. Kasem was the DJ for this radio show from 1970 to 1988 and then again from 1998 to 2009. He has since then been succeeded by Ryan Seacrest as the show’s host.


Casey Kasem created the Top 40 show

Canadian rock star Bryan Adams has described Casey as one of "one of the greats of American radio". This opinion was shared by the present Top 40 DJ Ryan Seacrest, who said: "Casey had a distinctive friendly on-air voice, and he was just as affable and nice if you had the privilege to be in his company. He'll be greatly missed by all of us."

The news of the DJ’s passing has been made public by his children through Kerri Kasem’s Twitter account in a Tweet saying "Early this Father's Day morning, our dad Casey Kasem passed away surrounded by family and friends”. One thing is certain; Top 40 fans will be mourning this loss for the coming weeks.
