Today we’d like to send GeekMom birthday wishes to Casey Kasem, celebrating his 80th today. Most of our kids have no idea what “Saturday morning cartoons” are, but Casey hosted NBC Saturday Mornings in the ’80s and was known to many of our parents for “Casey’s Countdown” and the “American Top 40 with Casey Kasem” show, which he did for more than 30 years, making him beloved by multiple generations.

But why the special geek love? Let’s review a few of his credits! Head over to GeekMom to check out Ruth Suehle’s birthday tribute!
