R.I.P Casey Kasem


It is with great sadness that we announce the death of the man with one of the most recognisable voices in American history. Casey Kasem, voice of Shaggy from the Scooby-Doo (1969-Present) franchise, has died today at the age of 82. While most people in the UK will probably know Kasem from his work as Shaggy, American fans will know him from his radio career which spanned half a century. Kasem was also a passionate vegan and humanitarian, supporting Lebanese-American and Arab-American causes. I will certainly remember Kasem as one of the key voices from one of my favourite childhood TV shows and I will remember seeing how much he enjoyed his work. As always, our thoughts are with Kasem’s family at this difficult time.
