Sonic Overload 6/16/14

The spirit or specter or ghost or what-have-you of legendary radio personality Casey Kasem hovers over this week’s Sonic Overload, with a few tributes sprinkled throughout the show. Casey died last week at the age of 82. Sure, American Top 40 was corny as hell and, as has been pointed out in other articles, Casey wasn’t exactly a passionate rock ‘n roll fan. But, amusingly, he had quite a potty mouth when he didn’t think the tape was running, as you’ll hear at the outset of the show. I did play Negativland’s “U2” on the all-covers show last fall, which includes some of Casey’s infamous outtakes mashed up with a rather warped version of “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For.” I also end the show with  a song I heard on his show for the first time, believe it or not—not a track you’d expect...

So, as Casey always said, keep your feet on the ground and keep reaching for the stars. Or something like that...
