    Passed away this morning. If you're over 45, he was probably a big part of your radio listening for years on American Top 40. Also the original voice of Shaggy in "Scooby-Doo, Where Are You?".

    Expected but really sad to see his family fighting each other so much instead of taking care of him.

    I had Sirius on all day today and they were doing a tribute to him.

    So, you pay for satellite radio but not cable tv?

    True. I've been a big fan of his for decades. Kasem had Parkinson's and an advanced form of dementia that left him unable to speak or move. As soon as his daughter re-gained control, she discontinued food and water per the living will of Casey...according to his wishes. He will be missed.

    I pay for both but refuse to pay for the premium channels on cable.

    My Sirius bill is $50 for 6 months.
