Casey inspired me to get into radio which I did for a short time and enjoyed the hell out of it. Growing up in Gardiner, Montana I listened to KCPX radio from Salt Lake City and always made sure to listen to Casey and American Top 40.
I will never forget the man who did so much for me and didn't even know me. I did hear him speak once and it was really something. A great man whose last days were tragic, but who has left behind a tremendous legacy. He would be 84 today.
I never listen to anything else anymore but AT 40 from the 70's and 80's. I own hundreds of those programs and treasure them.
His daughter Kerri is now a national spokesperson for elderly abuse and I follow her on FB and know she is a great fighter in the elderly rights movement.
Happy Birthday Casey, and when I die, I am going to finally have that long talk with you. AMERICAN TOP 40 OF THE 70'S AND 80'S FOREVER!!
