  1. R.I.P. I used to watch “America’s Top 40” when I was in high school. It’s sad that there was so much drama during his last days.

  2. I grew up on this guy. I enjoyed watching him on Americas top 10. He was definitely a one of a kind host. It never seemed right if he wasn’t on the show. I’m hoping that his family can make peace. He would probably be disappointed know how they are carrying on about him. Anyways, he was icon that will be really missed.

  3. Omgash! That’s right he did do the voice of ole’ nervous, paranoid-azz Shaggy-I loved those episodes! Lols

  4. Hmm is anyone else experiencing problems with the images on this blog loading?

    I’m trying to determine if its a problem on my end or if it’s the blog.

    Any responses would be greatly appreciated.
