RIP Kasem: Thanks for the memories
He was voice that Singaporeans tuned in to listen to the American Top 40, a radio show showcasing the best in US pop music, back in the 80s.
Radio personality Casey Kasem, who died at the age of 82 on Sunday (June 15), was also known to a generation of children as the voice of crime-solving teenager Shaggy from the TV cartoon Scooby Doo, reports time.com.
In a video that time.com has uploaded, Kasem appears in a Jerry Lewis telethon in the 1980s to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
“There’s a character that I play on that show, the sidekick of Scooby Doo, for the past 17 or 18 years, and his name is Shaggy,” Kasem tells the audience.
“And Shaggy would like to say a few words to the young people out there, alright?”
