Casey Kasem RIP – the voice of Shaggy in Scooby Doo and American top 40Casey Kasem- the voice of Shaggy in Scooby Doo and the American top 40 has died.

Casey was born in Flint Michigan 82 years ago and worked his way up through local radio to hosting the main top 40 show in the USA making him a familiar site to a generation of British viewers with his smooth and slick presentation that was fanatically at odds with the increasingly freak music of the times.

A liberal and a vegan, Kasem was a far more interesting character than his personae let on.

Coolly he was also the voice of Scooby Doo.
