Two years ago when Dick Clark died, everyone in broadcasting and music felt the loss. Dick Clark was a giant of TV, radio, music, and behind the scenes business. But, if I'm being honest, I'm a little young to have fully appreciated Dick Clark. I certainly appreciate his influence on the business, but I grew up after American Bandstand, when Dick Clark had gone from music tastemaker to his game show hosting days and New Years Eve annual duties.
However, I firmly grew up with Casey Kasem.
