LOS ANGELES (AP) — Casey Kasem's family and close friends celebrated him in the same way much of America did — by listening to his unmistakable radio voice.
Mourners at a small private memorial Saturday for Kasem heard his old radio shows, including "American Top 40," where he introduced music from Jimi Hendrix, Joni Mitchell and the Bee Gees.
The ceremony came a week after Kasem's death in Gig Harbor, Washington, at age 82.
Family representative Danny Deraney tells The Associated Press that about 100 family members, close friends and business associates gathered at the memorial at a church in the Bel Air neighborhood.
Kasem's three children all spoke, and pop music arranger David Campbell played a violin version of Stephen Sondheim's "Send in the Clowns," one of Kasem's favorite songs.
