Wishing a very happy 77th birthday to Casey Kasem, born today in 1932.
Casey’s beginnings as a radio DJ in the 1960’s led to him establishing a long career in voice-overs — most notably as the voice of the iconic cartoon character Norville “Shaggy” Rogers on Scooby-Doo (which he continues to voice in recent productions), as well as characters on Transformers, Battle of the Planets, Super Friends, and other shows. He also founded and hosted the popular radio show “American Top 40” for more than 30 years, and recorded a steady stream of commercial voice-overs over the decades.
