Casey Kasem will die in the next few months … this according to a rep for Casey’s wife Jean.

As we reported, Casey and Jean were sued by a former caregiver who claimed she was mistreated and cheated by Jean during her employment with the couple. The housekeeper, Hilda Loza, sued in small claims court and the case was heard Friday. …

He went into a diner in NY that was packed for breakfast, so he sat at the counter in the only empty place. Eventually the waitress got to the fellow onl his right, who said “English”, and was served an English Muffin.

When she got to the fellow on the left he said “Danish” and was served a Danish pastry.

The waitress came up to him to take his order. He said “Egyptian”.

In other news, Case Keenam debuted with the Texans as quarterback.

Coincidence? I think not.

Sad. Although most credit Murray the K, a New York disc jockey, as being the first to play a Beatles record in America in late 1963, Casey Kasem was actually spinning The Beatles “From Me to You” on KRLA in Los Angeles in Feb of 1963, a full year before the group first came to the U.S. for the first time.

i think you are confusing Dan Hedaya (who played Nick Tortelli on Cheers) with David Birney, Meredith Baxter’s ex-husband...

All I can remember of this guy is his decidedly far, far leftie opinion on everything. As soon as I heard about that I lost all respect for him.

Yeah I hate to see anyone die, but I won’t lose any sleep over it.

Unfortunately, when you see these stories about a celebrity who has "only a few months to live", it usually turns out that they are gone within a few weeks, if not days.

(Valerie Harper is a recent exception, however.)

Trying to find the story where Rush sent Kasem a can of SPAM. Kasem, a vegetarian said he used it as a paperweight.

Turn out that many of those AT40 backstories were total hokum, made up by the band/label, or urban legends. Had no way to debunk them in those days.

If the response is typical, it is because the Hollywierd crowd are typically left wing a-holes.

I just remember when Rush did it. Had to be around 1991/1992. IIRC, Kasem wrote an article or had an interview that espoused the extreme leftist viewpoint on vegetarianism. Rush sent him a can of SPAM in response. Kasem sent Rush a well taken letter where he mentioned his use of the can.

Oh, please tell me that’s not true. I always thought she was a knockout (well, in the 1970s, anyway; I have no idea what she looks like now).

I grew up in L.A., and I remember Kasey Kasem at KRLA and Bob Eubanks at KFWB.

So why the Top 40? Maybe Casey can answer this before he dies.

Why not the Top 50? Or the Top 75?

Top 40 makes no sense. So you are in a band that records a catchy song and it makes it to number 41 in the Billboard Hot 100. Not a shabby achievement. Yet it never really was a hit because Casey Kasem never introduced it on the radio. Not even a sappy long distance dedication from a knocked up waitress named Gladys Knoblock in Joplin, Missouri to some truck driver hurtling down I-10 someplace in Tucson, Arizona desperately trying to get the heck away from Gladys. (Song was "Don't Give Up On Us Baby" by David Soul.)

Why you might not even have bothered recording the song at all!

The Top 40 is just so...arbitrary. A kick in the stomach for recording artists that fell just short of it.

I need to know...why the Top 40?

I need to know...why the Top 40?

Because that's how many songs were in a radio stations playlist. 40 new songs from the top of the charts. That way as soon as a song dropped out of the top 40, a newer song that was maybe number 48 the week before now entered the Top 40 and would get airplay. 100 new songs are too many to play at any given time what with re-currents (last years songs) and oldies to play too. If a radio station played the top 100, you would never hear your favorite top 40 song (the ones that grab the most listeners) more than once a day.
