Listening to Americas Top 40 Music. MyZen.Blog

I happened to come across the sad story of Kemal Amin “Casey” Kasem. *(He was an American DJ, music historian, radio personality, and actor. He was the host of several music radio countdown programs, notably American Top 40 from 1970 until his retirement in 2009-Wikipedia).

Throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s while driving to Discos, clubs, to friend’s houses etc I used to love listening to that amazing soothing voice, the many love dedications by people as well as the sad love stories on the radio. Turns out his children sued his widow for wrongful death. A fascinating life and story.

I must say I always imagined him to be this tall, sexy American guy. So disappointing in that. LOL. Oh well it was a nice fantasy.
