american_top_40_logoI listened to American Top 40 religiously throughout middle school, famously running out of the room during the ball drop at midnight when WKBO played the year-end countdown on New Year’s Eve. In the mid-’70s, Casey Kasem’s voice was everywhere: countdowns, commercials and cartoons. It was inescapable, and that was OK.

Sadly, his last few months reads like one of the bizarre dedications he made every week on AT40. R.I.P. Casey Kasem
