    No longer breathing, either. AP has posted his obit.

    Gotta love CNN citing the daughter's Facebook post as the source.

    I liked AT40 during its glory days in the 70s, when people actually cared about pop-group trivia.

    At the same time, I hated Scooby-Doo with the fierce white hatred of a bazillion suns (and still do).

    XM radio's 70s channel has played AT 40 all day as a tribute, though they always play it on noon Saturday and 9 a.m. Sunday. So, this has been must-listen for me. I love those shows from that time period.

    AT 40 was a big part of my teens. I worked at swap meets Sunday mornings and rarely missed the show. It filled the mornings with ball games filling the afternoons.

    AT40 was appointment radio for a teen in the 1970s.

    Is there any such thing as appointment radio any more?

    Man I loved AT40 (yeah I grew up in the 70's).

    AT40 was perfectly synchronized for that period because unless you subscribed to Billboard mag (who could afford that?) you had no idea what would be the No. 1 song for that week until you heard Casey reveal it on Sunday's show.

    One of my favorite college memories is listening to AT40 on Sunday mornings to hear what was No. 1 while working the Sunday brunch shift at the restaurant. Ah good times.

    I'm not sure how anyone can hate the original Scooby Doo.

    As a young kid, I would get almost all of my music from recording the Weekly Top 40 on audio cassettes. Of course it also made me grow to hate top 40 and seek out the radio stations where they played classic rock.
