Farewell, Casey Kasem


Casey Kasem, who had one of the most recognizable voices in the world, has passed away at the age of 82.

Best known for his radio presence as the longtime host of America's Top 40 and "Long-Distance Dedications," he also voiced dozens of cartoon voices, most notably Shaggy from Scooby-Doo but also Robin on Superfriends and Alexander on Josie and the Pussycats.

For me, he'll always be the voice of G-Force leader Mark on Battle of the Planets, one of my favorite cartoons growing up.

His famous sign-off was "Keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars."  Here's hoping Kasem is now among the stars himself.
