It’s been a while since I had done one of these, so I figured today was as good as any to go for it… for two reasons.. big reasons. The first one is my father. On this Father’s Day, there is no one I know who pushed me and supported me more to do whatever I set my mind to and excel at it more than him. He gave me a lot of life lessons that I still follow to this day and I can only hope that I can be half the man he is, and do the same for my son. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there.
The second reason is the sad passing away today of the amazing DJ Casey Kasem. He was an amazing man whose voice carried me through my entire childhood. My dad bought an astounding Marantz sound system and we listened to Casey’s Top 40 countdown religiously. (We also listened to the Weekly Country Music Countdown, but I won’t mention that very often 😛 ). This great man will be missed. He inspired me to be a DJ, and to be able to do it while being approachable by his audience. The Long Distance Dedication was an amazing part of his show that told me that no matter how great someone can be, he can be anyone’s friend just by reaching out.
