Q It Up: Tell Us a Story! - Casey

Casey

From Joe D’Agostin [audioproduction[at]sbcglobal.net], D’Agostin Productions, Pasadena, California

I would have to say that one of the greatest talents that I have ever worked with would have to be Casey Kasem. We have all heard the Dead Dog outtakes, but that is not the Casey that most of us know who had the opportunity to work with him. We have all had horrible days in our lives, but we have all been lucky enough not to have recorders documenting it. It was obviously an overblown situation that we’re all guilty of from time to time.

I had the honor of working with Casey during the late ‘90s and early ‘00s. I have never worked with someone as hands on as Casey. After thousands of radio shows and countless VO sessions over the years, he still maintained an interest in the quality of his work. He was involved in every detail throughout the entire production process and was always concerned with the quality of his shows. He had the legendary voice, American Top 40, TV shows etc. He could have very easily just blown through everything to collect an easy paycheck but he didn’t. Instead, he put everything he had into every show to make it the best that he could.

I learned a lot from Casey’s work ethics and I really admire him for that.
