    I agree. Family feuding is ugly.

    Casey's high point was the 70's.

    By the time the 80's came about music really started to fragment with the advent of MTV and listening habits started changing greatly.

    But boy during the 70's, "America's Top 40" was it. This was before stores and such piped in their own music, so quite often what was playing on the radio was playing everywhere. The weekly "Top 40" list was much more important and impactful in our lives than it is today (by far). I remember many times friends talking about who was going to be the "#1" that week.

    The music landscape was so much different then.

    I remember many a weekend listening to that. Sad to see Kasem and Dick Clark both pass. Many ties to the past now gone.

    Casey Kasem had one of the most distinctive voices of the 20th century. He will not be soon forgotten by those of us who heard him on radio or television. Rest in peace Mr. Kasem.
