There are few people in life that are easily identifiable by something other than their face. Maybe it's their height. Maybe it's their walk. Maybe it's their hair style (we're looking at you, Dennis Rodman). Few people, though, are as recognizable from their voice as the late Casey Kasem.

If you are around my age or older, then you are keenly aware of the soothing tones of Kasem's long distance dedications and his American Top 40 countdowns. What you might not be aware of is the length of his career that spanned almost 40 years. As if being the radio voice of a generation, he was also the voice of Shaggy on Scooby Doo along with several Transformers. He also had cameos on Saved by the Bell and ALF. ALF, y'all! When Kasem died in 2014, the world of radio and entertainment lost a giant. What better way to celebrate the day of his birth than with some MAC news.
