Long distance dedications, 40 hits, a great voice and a signature sign-off of "keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars." All of these things are associated with Casey Kasem. He died today on Father's Day at the age of 82.

The news was shared by Kasem's daughter on Twitter and Facebook. Facebook tributes are pouring in and Sirius XM is running a Casey Kasem tribute on 70's on 7.

Kasem's American Top 40 started on July 4, 1970 and was syndicated to radio stations around the world.
