From: America’s Top 40
Who said it?: Casey Kasem
The story behind the quote: This week’s quote is kind of an oddball because it didn’t originally come from the Internet, television, movies or cartoons. Rather, it comes from the radio, specifically, the America’s Top 40 program. However, it does have some geeky links as it comes from the original voice of Shaggy from Scooby-Doo.
The quote actually comes from Casey Kasem, a radio DJ and the aforementioned voice of Shaggy. As the host of America’s Top 40 and it’s subsequent television version, America’s Top 10, he would count down the biggest music hits of the time. Just before the show would end, he would sign off with his signature catchphrase, which would be this week’s quote.
Geek wisdom: There’s no harm in chasing for success. However, you should always remember your roots and keep yourself grounded.
