June 17 - Casey Kasem Died

Casey Kasem has died at the age of 82. The legendary radio star and voice actor had been suffering from Parkinson's and passed away on Sunday. "Early this Father’s Day morning, our dad Casey Kasem passed away surrounded by family and friends." Kerri Kasem wrote. 

Kasem, whose first name was Kemal, was best known to a generation of fans as the host of American Top 40, which he hosted for a total of 24 years, from 1970-88, and again from 1998-2004, when Ryan Seacrest took his place. To Elvis fans, he's best know for his booming voice on the documentary "Elvis: The Echo Will Never Die." --"There are some entertaining excerpts from actual Presley interviews, and numerous talking heads (B.B. King, friends and members of the "Memphis Mafia," and Sammy Davis Jr.) weigh in. But for the most part, they have little of significance to impart - actress Ursula Andress, who appeared in Fun in Acapulco with Elvis, reports that he was "a very good-looking man"." the voice-over was however excellent!
